Squirrel Nut Zippers, in Fall River
Their musical journey began in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in the mid 1990's, as a musician's escape from the cookie-cutter world of modern rock radio at the time. Jimbo Mathus, along with drummer/percussionist Chris Phillips, formed the band as a casual musical foray among friends and family in the area. It wasn't long before the band's quirky mix of jazz chords, folk music, and punk rock leanings spread out of the region and attracted a national audience. Years later in 2016 and through chronicles of every kind, the band has emerged from a lengthy recording hiatus, reinvigorated, reinvested, and rejuvenated.
