This weeks Album of the Week comes from Box o’ Bananas with their new release ‘Gies a Smile’ which was released on the 3 of July
Box o’ Bananas is the collaboration of Jock The Box – Accordion/ Keyboards and Stevie Gillies Guitar/ mandolin/ Bouzouki who have been kicking up a storm where ever they perform! Ashley MacMillan joins them on the album with drums/ percussion.
This is their much awaited second album and has been well worth the wait. Jock and Stevie take your from the classical to punk, and traditional to funk, and everything in between! It feels you either have a full orchestra or large ceilidh band in your living room.
For all sceptics out their re what box and guitar can do I suggest you listen to this album which will change the way you think about the versatility of these instruments in the right hands. Gies a Smile! Does just that !
