Professor Gall-
'A Tincture of Junkyard Folk and Steampunk Jazz'. Professor Gall seeks to uncover the contradictions of an ambiguous and native-less society, 'dreaming the existentialists' dream', while at the same time pleading for individualism, peace, and more fun at funerals.‘No romp through the Bridge City’s underpasses would be complete without Professor Gall, the living avatar of cheap whiskey. Astride his mighty stomp box, the Professor and his banjo lead a streetwise horn section in an ongoing siege of the straight life’ Noah Michens of the Wanderlust Circus

The Constant Tourists-
Kazoo, accordion, trumpet, guitar, bass, and drums — the Constant Tourists are not your typical band. The Denver-based band has been likened to the Squirrel Nut Zippers and the Pink Martinis,though according to founding member Cassie Sánchez, neither group directly influenced them.

Instead, they owe their gypsyjazz revelry to Sánchez’ exposure to the street and urban musicians of France, as well as zydeco music.

Band members also bring strains of classical and jazz training into the mix. The Constant Tourists began with Cassie and her husband Nate Sánchez about seven years ago up in Washington State. A self-taught guitarist, Nate was part of his high school’s jazz and chamber all-state choirs. He began writing songs in middle school. Cassie, who grew up in Colorado Springs, played as first chair trumpet through her high school years, was part of an all-state choir, and played in a ska band called The Ghetto Cherubs. She also played piano, which turned out to be useful when she picked up her first accordion several years ago.
