The Milk Crate Bandits make music to make you dance, smile and party. It's music born on the streets. Walking down the streets of Vancouver you might 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 you jump, holler and shout and some even say that being party to a misdemeanour makes it all the more fun!

"Canada's premier 'old school' harp wizard has never sounded better. Harpdog's effortless vocal delivery is a rare and natural gift." - Holger Petersen - CKUA, CBC and SiriusXM Broadcaster
Charlie Musselwhite says "Harpdog's got a smokin' band playing and he's singing the real deal, old school blues just like you want to hear it. The tune I did with Harpdog, Moose On The Loose, was a whole lotta fun. I ain't lyin'!"
"They play the blues naturally and without gimmicks or pretension, and when you combine that with their talent, it places them at the top of their trade… You won't find a better blues band in Canada." - West Coast Entertainment Magazine
