Koopa_Troop_1Saturday March 12, 2016, at 8 pm, $10. Koopa Troop brings the nostalgic sounds of video games to life in a quirky 5-piece ensemble. Koopa Troop is: Chelsea McBride/Princess Daisy (sax/flute), Wilson McLeish/ Luigi (guitar), Chris Bruder/Toad (piano), Tom Altobelli/Mario (bass), and Tyler Goertzen/Link (drums)
Donning their Nintendo-themed costumes, five Toronto jazz musicians embrace their inner nerd and become a live, musical nostalgia machine. Koopa Troop aims to induce flashbacks as they cover all the classic video game soundtracks from Mario to Megaman. Bringing the best video game composers to the forefront, the Koopa Troop jazz, rock, funk, and swing-infused arrangements bring the epic pixelated melodies of the past into the real world.
