ALSB is a band that is hard to put a label on. Following the momentum of their critically acclaimed debut album À lʼétage des funambules, ALSB continues to delight and confound with their new album Entre Nous. Do you enjoy French cabaret jazz-country-ska-mariachi-swingtorch-Motown-samba-rock and roll-trip hop? Does that even make sense? When you listen to Entre Nous, the answer is a resounding “oui”.
The fact is, ALSB is not concerned with such limiting concepts as genre – they simply go where their musical curiosity takes them.
Cutting their musical teeth on Toronto’s club scene, ALSB built a following reinterpreting French classic as seen through a kaleidoscope of other influences. Edith Piaf sitting in with a slow jam rhythm section, Jacque Brel having a bar brawl with Tom Waits… this is the sound that the band has been celebrated for – and won awards for, including the prestigious Coup De Foudre 2012. It is a sound that has thrilled audiences across Canada.
Peformance date: Sunday June 17 – 2:00pm & 3:00pm
