Comments Off on Koopa Troop, jazzed up vintage video-game music, Fri Apr 5

Friday April 5, 2019, at 8 pm, $10. The Koopa Troop band play classic video-game music: Wilson McLeish / Luigi (guitar),Tom Altobelli /Mario (bass), Tyler Goertzen /Link (drums), Chris Bruder /Toad (piano). [Fifth member Chelsea McBride is not available for this concert.]
Koopa Troop brings the nostalgic sounds of video games to life in a quirky ensemble. Donning their Nintendo-themed costumes, these 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, Koopa Troop’s jazz, rock, funk, and swing-infused arrangements bring the epic pixelated melodies of the past into the real world.
