Squirrel Nut Zippers
Formed in 1993 out of Chapel Hill, NC, Squirrel Nut Zippers are a renowned eclectic fusion of Delta blues, gypsy jazz, 1930s–era swing, klezmer, and other styles makes them hard to categorize, their unique music found a niche in the late 1990s, when the band met with national recognition and commercial success, sometimes associated with the Swing Revival of the same period. Breakthrough single “Hell” went into the top 10 on Modern Rock and sold more than 3 million records. Milestone performances: Radio City Music Hall with Tony Bennett, President Bill Clinton’s Inaugural Ball, 1996 Summer Olympics, Sesame Street, Letterman, Leno, Regis and Kathy, Conan, Dick Clarks NYE, 1997 tour with Neil Young, multiple sold out headline tours and private shows for Microsoft, Daimler Chrysler and others.

2016 marked the 20th anniversary of the Squirrel Nut Zippers most celebrated and commercially successful album Hot. Originally released in the summer of 1996, Hot was the follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed debut The Inevitable. By this time the group had already established a substantial live following across the country thanks to early support from NPR, college radio and non-commercial stations. Hot wound up selling over 1.3 million copies.

In honor of the 20th Anniversary of Hot, the band’s visionary creator Jimbo Mathus, along with founding member and partner Chris Phillips (Drums), have crafted a brand new stage show including several leading musicians from New Orleans to serve up the bands unique musical flavor which owes its roots to that city.

“We are humbled and incredibly excited by the Zippers shows since the re-launch,” band leader Jimbo Mathus commented. “It’s not a reunion, it’s a revival! The band includes cutting edge talent from New Orleans and the songs have been brought to life in an exciting new way. But most things remain unchanged… An amazing experience for young and old.”

Plans are underway for the band to record a brand new album, which would be their first new studio album in seventeen years.
