The Canaries: Bigger that the Beatles!

The Canaries are the serendipitous musical decoupage of Billy Canary (baritone ukulele and juevo), Brother Atom Bomb of Reflection (concert and soprano ukulele), Liam Canary,(guitar and harmonica), Princess Canary (saxomaphone and fashion plate)and anyone else who walks in the barn door. Everybody sings.

At times we play together and at times we play solo. We break up a lot. We get together a lot.

One day, we will be bigger than the Beatles.

The Canaries have appeared many times at two places: The famous Folk Music Center in Claremont, CA. and a joint called the Coffee Dump in Rio Nada, which is, ironically, closed on Saturday for decaffeinated religious reasons. So we drink beer that night.

A partial list of songs heard from the general direction of the Canaries would include Satellite of Love, Brother Can You Spare a Dime, Maggie's Farm, Space Oddity, Little Red Riding Hood and two partial renditions of Home On the Range.

Musical influences swing wildly from Wild Man Fisher to Neal Sedaka, from Sun Ra to Camper Van Beethoven. They do showtunes too.

Fabuloso Bloggo Bro-O. Hopefully I'll pick up another instrument this weekend.
