track 6 of 11
Canada's answer to Austin Powers converts Canadian rock hits into lounge music for space age bachelor pads.
Jaymz Bee used to make very weird music as the main lunatic in a band called Look People. Now he has turned to lounge music and has even written a book, Cocktail Parties For Dummies. The Royal Jelly Orchestra was originally formed as a tongue-in-cheek act for the first Kumbaya Festival. This amazingly cool cd takes Canadian rock standards and transforms them into lounge lizard fodder. So put on your Hugh Hefner robe and pipe and give this a listen.
The Royal Jelly Orchestra consists of:
Jono Grant - guitars, keyboards Great Bob Scott - drums John Henry Nyenhuis - keyboards Sam Allison - bass Victor Bateman - bass Richard Underhill - saxophone Sarah McElcheran - trumpet Colleen Allen - woodwinds Jim Bish - saxophone, flute James Swan - violin George Kollar - sitar Peter Appleyard - percussion
The album comes with cocktail recipes in the cd tray.
