Raucous Original Ska Folk – Mr Tea and the Minions – release ‘Twitchy Feet’ June 16th
Mr Tea and the Minions – Raucous Original Ska Folk
Drawing on a huge range of influences, from Balkan, Folk and Ska to Rock, Metal and Dub (plus plenty in between), festival favourites Mr Tea and the Minions create incredibly energetic, original music to make you dance your socks off!
Led by Elles’ powerful vocals and Lucy’s vibrant folk fiddle, the band are releasing 3 brand new songs that have been going down a storm at their extravagantly colourful, theatrical live performances. The band treat the audience as co-conspirators and every show is about collectively having the best time possible, with MTATM contributing incredible amounts of energy, dancing wildly and most importantly having amazing fun doing it!
Mr Tea and the Minions have been unleashing their colourful explosion of musical mayhem on unsuspecting audiences since 2013. With well over 100 festival appearances including Glastonbury, Boomtown, WOMAD, Shambala, Secret Garden Party, Belladrum, Beautiful Days, and Nozstock to name just a few, Mr Tea and the Minions always play (in the words of The Independent) a “bouncing set – it’s impossible not to get involved.”
Their latest album ‘Mutiny’ was released in October 2019, along with several new video releases, first and foremost the genre-bending silliness of ‘Pandemonium’. Their debut album, ‘Tea Your Mind’, was released in 2016, along with an anarchic video to the opening song, ‘Coffee Shop Psycho’.
“The Minions seamlessly weave Balkan beats with ska, dub and swing to create a bouncing afternoon set which has everyone from four-year-olds in luminous ear defenders to grey- haired dreads kicking up the dust in front of the main stage. It’s impossible not to get involved.” The Independent
“Mr Tea and the Minions played one of the best performances we have ever seen! Expect great things from these guys.” Swingamajig Festival
“Playing their own blend of gypsy ska, dub, swing and everything in between, Mr Tea and
The Minions will have you straight on the dance floor.” Nitelife Magazine
“Upbeat, playful and exciting.” 365 Bristol
