Looka Looka Looka originally started on the streets of Cleveland, playing in front of a tip jar made from an old soup can. The traveling noisemakers have been known to employ a selection of instruments from fiddle, accordion & washboard, to trumpets, trombones and saxophones. They deliver a home-made brand they call "dumpster-swing" from state to state as they travel across the U.S. with plans to see the world.
Dumpster-Swing [duhmp-ster - swing]:
a meld of trash-folk, gypsy-swing, jazz & blues
Coined by guitarist/singer Andrew Pino (Lucio), this is the name given to such noises produced by a traveling, bourbon-soaked parlor-act with mixed musical interests & a wander-lust to boot.
