Western Canadian Music Awards nominated The Oot n’ Oots make kids music that is, to quote Jerry Garcia, not for kids only. Drawing on diverse influences from the history of rock n’ roll and popular music, The Oot n’ Oots are a band with chops, soul, and swagger. Their original songs are wildly imaginative, brimming with humour and inspiration.
In performance the band casts a spell on their audience, inspiring freedom, lightheartedness, and laughter. Expect to see children jumping and running or lying on their backs spontaneously doing yoga, teenagers grooving and giggling, and adults with knowing grins bobbing their heads. The Oot n’ Oots are truly entertainers for the whole family, engendering a feeling of community, joy, and understanding through their free-spirited art.
This is a family band in all senses of the term, fronted by 10-year-old vocalist Ruth Cipes with her dad Ezra (vocals, guitar) and uncles Ari (vocals, guitar), Gabe (vocals, bass), and Matthew (vocals, drums). Ruth’s voice has been described as having “the smoky sounds of a jazz chanteuse” and “the earnestness of a 1960s folk singer.” Ruth trades lead vocal duties with Ari, who has a melodic tenor and cache of silly voices and characters.
