    Winnipeg’s favorite gypsy-jazz-orchestral outfit, Flying Fox and the Hunter Gatherers feature original rock operas, old style crooning and a killer brass section. Their unique blend of jazz, folk and musical theater has been described as 'Hawksley Workman meets Calexico' and 'a gypsy version of Queen.' Featuring “Winnipeg’s strongest horn section” (The Manitoban), Flying Fox’s energetic live show has built them an ever-expanding reputation as one of Canada’s must see musical acts, as documented by the CBC's Canada Live in 2010.
