Squirrel Nut Zippers Biography (Wikipedia)

The Squirrel Nut Zippers are an American band formed in 1993 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, United States, by James "Jimbo" Mathus (vocals and guitar), Tom Maxwell (vocals and guitar), Katharine Whalen (vocals, banjo, and ukulele), Chris Phillips on drums, Don Raleigh on bass and sideman Ken Mosher.

The Squirrel Nut Zippers' music is a fusion of Delta blues, gypsy jazz, 1930s–era swing, klezmer and other styles. They found commercial success during the Swing Revival of the late 1990s with their 1996 single "Hell", penned by Tom Maxwell.

After a hiatus of several years, the original band members reunited and took to the stage again in 2007, playing select dates around the United States and Canada through 2008.

In 2016, band leader Jimbo Mathus along with original member Chris Phillips reactivated the band with a brand new lineup to tour in support of the 20th Anniversary of their biggest selling album, Hot.
