My Son the Hurricane is a 14-piece brasshop funk beast with the mantra: anything worth doing is worth overdoing.  Hailing from Niagara/Toronto, the band mixes New Orleans style grooves with funk, jazz and hiphop.  Driving the show, charismatic frontman Jacob Bergsma “can playfully pluck every nerve in your body with his voice” (Earshot), while the well-oiled rhythm section including 2 trombones, sousaphone, 2 trumpets and 2 saxes creates a spectacle of sound.  With this lineup, My Son the Hurricane “stood out like a sore, yet extremely talented thumb at every show they’ve played” (Pulse Niagara), and became revered for their live show. 
   
Riding the success of their sophomore release “Cashing a Deadman’s Cheque” (feat. U.S.S. frontman Ash Buchholtz and three-time Juno/Polaris nominee D-Sisive), the Hurricane was featured on the CBC and Much More Music.  Their blending of styles and penchant for inciting dance parties and penning introspective ballads (Pushin’ Up Daisies) has garnered them high praise on the Canadian festival circuit with breakout performances at Hillside, Evolve, Beaches Jazz, and more.    
 
Drummer Danno O’Shea acts as ringleader for the mammoth project, spurring the group to weave through different styles on the new album “Is This What You Want?!”, recorded at Phase One Studios with engineer Jeff Pelletier (Big Sugar, Ludacris). Leading up to the album’s June 2016 release, it was a featured stream on Exclaim!, and has since found its way to Canadian airwaves including CBC Radio One, Edge 102.1, and 97.7 Hitz FM, which spotlighted the Hurricane as a “Band on the Verge”. This is the first release to feature Sylvie Kindree on vocals, who adds sassy hooks and acts as a foil to the ever outgoing Bergsma.  The album’s songs range from dance floor bangers to slimy and Primus inspired “Grapes”, which closes out the album with a collective thud.  “Is This What You Want?!” brings a new flavour to the Hurricane repertoire, building on what makes their sound “a fusion that one simply needs to experience live” (Buying Shots for Bands).
