About Milk Crate Bandits
The Milk Crate Bandits make music to make you dance, smile and party. It’s music born on the streets. Walking down the streets of Vancouver you’ll see them on their stolen plastic thrones and playing the sounds of New Orleans. Yes, some may say they’re crooks but the petty theft of a milk crate from a back alley is surely absolved by the love they’ll give you if you come and listen. The joy of the music will make you jump, holler and shout and some even say that being party to a misdemeanour makes it all the more fun!
They have released two EPs, ‘The Neighbourhood’ and ‘The View From Out Here’ both of which were recorded in New Orleans with Preservation Hall Trumpet player Kevin Louis. After a successful tours of BC in the Fall of 2017 and the Spring of 2018, featuring Brad Shigeta (Ellington Orchestra, Illinois Jacquet, Jack McDuff), The Neighbourhood hit #1 on the CBFX jazz charts. Milk Crate Bandits present a high-energy performance of New Orleans jazz, intimate acoustic moments and cheeky lyrics.

‘“The Neighbourhood” is an incredible integration of New Orleans authentic jazz,
scenic Vancouver lyrical illustrations, and original composing that results in a stunning collection of new music’ – Vintage Swing Review (2017)
