The band has been touring together since 2008, melding musical influences into an unstoppable force of gypsy-roots.

While the eleven tracks explore folk, bluegrass, eastern European, African rhythms and more; they sometimes do so in the same song, defining a new fusion that is turning heads.
The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra are just starting out a year of tour in support of the new album, they started in eastern Canada in late October 2012, and plan to keep going throughout North America all year. The band doesn't just play regular shows however, TMO like to mix it up, collaborate, and play shows that contribute back more than just musical entertainment. They often partner with not for profits, do outreach with youth organizations and integrate small businesses and local sustainable food into their shows.
