Lemon Bucket Orkestra is a guerilla-punk-party-brass band massive like no other. Tracing their roots back to the streets of Toronto, the original quartet of busking troubadours quickly amassed a battalion of like-minded musical souls and the full-blown, dozen-plus strong Orkestra was born. The multi award winning ensemble has been heralded as a groundbreaking, genre-bending phenomenon by the Canadian and international media alike and over the past 8 years they have performed on streets and stages around the world, leaving a trail of new friends and dedicated fans in their wake.

Equal parts exhilarating precision and reckless abandon, LBO’s live shows are a truly immersive experience - ranging from the ecstatic to the cathartic - and they have effectively captured that energy on their new album If I Had The Strength. The 11 song opus includes guest appearances from famed soprano Measha Brueggergosman, Latino rapper Boogat, Choir! Choir! Choir!, and more – and it has been quickly amassing critical acclaim. Penguin Eggs proclaimed, “the band vibrates with an irrepressible passion and playful humour that's impossible to ignore”, and Exclaim Magazine observed that it was a “marked evolution for the band”, while Pure Gran Audio pointed out that, “the record is an emotional journey of musical exploration and communal celebration.”

Having finished a 10 date Canadian tour in support of the new releases, the band is currently in New York City rehearsing for the premiere their two-time Dora Award winning folk opera Counting Sheep. Written by band principles Mark and Marichka Marczyk, it’s a story of love and revolution, inspired by the couple’s personal experience in Ukraine in 2014. With the entire band as the cast, it debuted to great acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2016, and has gone on to play in Ireland, Germany and the UK.

The busy group is looking forward to a tour of New Zealand in March 2018 as well as many Canadian dates and TV appearances.
