More about the Milk Crate Bandits
It’s music to make you dance, smile and party. It’s music born on the streets. Meet the Milk Crate Bandits. Walking down the streets of Vancouver you’ll see them on their stolen plastic thrones and playing the sounds of New Orleans. Yes, some may say
they’re crooks but the petty theft of a milk crate from a back alley is surely absolved by the love they’ll give you if you come and listen. The joy of the music will make youjump, holler and shout and some even say that being party to a misdemeanour makes
it all the more fun! So if you see a spare milk crate on the street pull up a seat and join in the joyous, swinging and dirty sounds of 1920s New Orleans played by vagabonds from across the globe!

Praise for Jack Ray
“Part of the Future… A very nice feel and style.”- Eddy Davis (Woody Allen Band)
“It’s a buzz to hear such a young bloke playing jazz on the tenor banjo!”- Don
Lewers"
