“It’s not easy to categorize the music of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, except that it’s hot.”

2016 marked the 20th Anniversary of the Squirrel Nut Zippers most celebrated and commercially succesful album Hot.  Originally released in the summer of 1996, Hot was the follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed debut The Inevitable.  Thanks to early support from NPR, college radio and non-commercial stations, Hot sold over 1.3 million copies.  In honor of the 20th Anniversary, Squirrel Nut Zippers have crafted a brand new stage show including several leading musicians from New Orleans to serve up the band’s unique musical flavor.

“It’s not a reunion, it’s a revival!” commented band leader Jimbo Mathus.  “The band includes cutting edge talent from New Orleans and the songs have been brought to life in an exciting new way.  But most things remain unchanged… An amazing experience for young and old.”
