Trophy Wife is prog-rock in it's most virtuosic and shamelessly entertaining form. Foregoing a singer to steal all the glory for themselves, Trophy Wife dazzles the ear, pleases the eye, moves the ass and melts the faces of every audience member lucky enough to witness such an intense musical spectacle.
no hooks! no chorus! no verse! no bridge! no BS! This is TIGER PRAWN from East Van. Reckless improvisation in all styles! This 2-piece wrecking crue is SHOCKK & JOHNNY WILDKAT, both touring veterans. They just did a mini tour w/PJ HARVEY in Spain & also did some improv clinics at Berklee college of music last year. If you're thinking free jazz......don't! TIGER-PRAWN influences include 24-7 spyz, Brighton Rock, Glass Tiger, Steve Morse era Kansas, Foghat, Tony Macalpine, Saga, Raven & Bullet Boys just to name a few. The favorite band of the legendary Railway Club staff! Imagine how many bands they have seen! Year after year jazz & metal. Kids think they work it out? NOPE! 2 shots of JD each before stage is all the prep TIGER-PRAWN needs!
