Shemple .. and The Unusual Suspects

Shemple .. and The Unusual Suspects

Collaboration

While Shemple was standing on Lake Cootharaba, it seemed the perfect opportunity to manifest another dream; a film clip for local band The Unusual Suspects, a delightfully crazy balkan brass street band

The Unusual Suspects

8 drummers, 6 saxes, 2 trumpets, a clarinet, a tenor horn, 2 trombones, a sousaphone, an ipod, a bass guitar, a cittern and a cumbus.
Unusual music in unusual times and in unusual clothes.
Balkan, funky dance music for dancing in the streets (or anywhere really).
