Late show:
*** Flying Fox and the Hunter Gatherers is a band fascinated by folk tales, puppet shows, and homemade mythologies. Drawing from gypsy jazz, classical and pop, the Flying Foxes perform music about the sexual misadventures of heavy machinery, the nighttime journeys of little boys and lions born of a human womb.

Flying Fox and the Hunter Gatherers are a sextet of classically trained musicians showcasing complex songwriting and Winnipegs strongest horn section (The Manitoban). Since receiving a five-star review for their self-titled EP (The Uniter) and a description as one of Winnipegs most acclaimed bands (Winnipeg Sun), Flying Fox and the Hunter Gatherers has performed at numerous festivals, embarked on four major tours, and recorded a live performance for CBC Radios Canada Live.

In 2010, the Flying Fox obsession with dark tales and puppetry was taken to full fruition with the debut of an original rock opera titled The Wild Things. Inspired by the iconic children's story, Where the Wild Things Are, the rock opera featured elaborate costume and set design by local artists (check out the visuals section!). Performed at the 2010 Winnipeg Fringe Festival, the show received the prestigious Best of Fest award and sold over 1,200 tickets. Soundtrack music from The Wild Things was recorded and released as a concept album.
"Exhilarating and joyfully noisy, this inspired rock opera left its opening night audience roaring with wholehearted approval."
(Winnipeg Free Press, 4.5 star review of The Wild Things show at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival)
