Lemon Bucket Orkestra is a guerilla-punk-balkan-folk-brass band massive like no other. Tracing their genesis 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 exquisitely captured that energy on their new album ‘If I Had The Strength’. Released in November 2018, it includes guest appearances from famed soprano Measha Brueggergosman, Latino rapper BoogatChoir! Choir! Choir! and more. Their new video for the song Freedom has also just been released. Directed by the band's own Michael Louis Johnson, it was shot following an all-night drive home from a gig. Without any sleep, the members donned their best suits and gowns, cracked open a bottle of tequila, and let the cameras roll. “We wanted to create something that presents more questions than it answers,” Johnson says. “A piece wherein the stakes are very high, but we don't know what's at stake."

The band is currently supporting their new releases with a 9-date Canadian tour, before heading south to New York City to premiere their two-time Dora award winning folk opera Counting Sheep in December. They will also be featured artists in the made for CBC TV movie Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas – a celebration of the most beloved Christmas songs set to air nationally on December 3rd. With a recent appearance on CBC Q, up coming tapings for The Strombo Show, and a March 2018 tour of New Zealand that includes performing at the WOMAD Festival there, it’s clear that LBO have no plans of slowing down. Expect to hear a lot more about them in the coming year, as the take their unique brand of music mayhem to audiences around the world.
