Hamilton's Skirt Check Pack Their Debut EP With Tasty Tracks!

Hamilton Jazz collective, Skirt Check, definitely pack a lot of tasty stuff into their self-titled EP.  Each song's unique and showcases just how versatile this big band can be.

The recording kicks off with a medley of jazzified metal covers.  Metallica, Rage Against the Machine and a few others get 'Skirted' with class.  Following it up is a high energy instrumental Mega which finishes off with some incredible video game style music.  Things then get super funky with Day to Day.  Everything ends off on a cool, reggae vibe with The Dime.

This superb band includes:

  • Troy Dowding - Trumpet
  • Chris Skrzek - Trombone
  • Matt Weil - Alto Sax
  • Sal Rosselli - Tenor Sax
  • Victoria Cox - Bari Sax
  • Fab del Monaco - Guitar
  • James Gannett - Bass
  • Anthony D'Angela - Drums

You can pick up a disc at their live wonderful shows, such as their EP release party on Tuesday, February 19, 2016 at the Corktown in Hamilton)
