Brass band cover of 1234 (Feist) featuring Ali Wick

Check out 1234 wherever you get your music! Listen your favourite music platform.


Today March 22nd we release 1234. This is from our upcoming "The Alberta Sessions" EP. Our EP celebrates the songwriting of Alberta female artists in the brass band genre, featuring the amazing Ali Wick. What a better celebration of Alberta music than a song from Calgary's hometown girl Feist. We love the bouncy feel of this one, and Allistair Elliott's "Sgt Pepper" style piccolo trumpet at the end, and John Abraham's understated trombone solo. The post-teen melancholy in the lyrics is quite seductive. Hope you LOVE IT.

Delirium Street Party Brass releases Big Yellow Taxi for Joni Mitchell's 80th Birthday

Check out Big Yellow Taxi on Tuesday wherever you get your music! Listen your favourite music platform.

For Immediate Release:



06 NOVEMBER 2023 (Calgary, AB) – Delirium Street Party Brass, Calgary’s #1 brass and percussion ensemble, has released their new single for "Big Yellow Taxi" off of their upcoming debut EP The Alberta Sessions.

“Big Yellow Taxi” is the second single from the EP, which will be released on Tuesday, November 7th - the same day as the legendary singer/songwriter and icon Joni Mitchell’s 80th birthday.  “We are so lucky to be able to have this band of a dozen of Calgary’s greatest musicians, and to celebrate the greatest genius to ever come out of Alberta on her 80th birthday is a major honour”, said co-Producer Scott Morin.

Although widely discussed as being from Saskatchewan, Joni Mitchell was born in Fort Macleod, AB on November 7th, 1943.  Her storied history as one of the great poets, songwriters, painters, vocalists and guitarists is widely celebrated, and this composition is perhaps her best known in an unbelievable catalogue of classic songs.  “Big Yellow Taxi” is known for its environmental concern and is the #9 song on CBC’s list of ‘Top 50 Essential Canadian tracks.’

The arrangement of the song by Calgarian bassist Jeremy Coates, vocal performance from local singer Ali Wick, and production by band leader John Abraham and 3-Time Juno Winner Scott Morin was a true labour of love, that took place at OCL Studios in Chestermere, AB.  The opportunity to record this song in the prairies, where Joni grew up, added to the inspiration behind the recording. 

Delirium Street Party Brass is a unique ensemble of jazz, funk, soul and pop musicians who are driven to bring a new take on the classic New Orleans brass band sound.  Featuring three generations of musicians led by a dynamic and diverse young vocalist, the band represents a refreshing take that is focussed on bringing the brass band esthetic to a wide audience.

“Big Yellow Taxi” is the follow up to DSPB’s debut single, an arrangement of Kiesza’s hit “Hideaway”, and is the second single from their debut EP “The Alberta Sessions” which will be released in April 2024.  The EP features new arrangements in the brass band tradition of songs by Joni Mitchell, Kiesza, Feist, Ali Wick, Jocelyn Alice, and Tegan and Sara.  All singles will be released over the next 6 months, followed by a Western Canadian tour from the group.

Hideaway Release Party with l'Omelette at Ironwood Feb 23

We're having a double-single release party by Delirium Street Party Brass with special guests l'Omelette. Delirium releases their "Hideaway" single, the first of their "Alberta Sessions" song project with Modern Brass Band interpretations of female Alberta Songwriters. We love the original by Kiesza! Eclectic art rock outfit L'omlette releases their single "Cool".

These two bands are reinventing modern music. L'omelette has proudly evaded description since their inception in 2017, blending music and visuals with vibrant, heady beats. Delirium Street Party Brass has been pushing the "modern brass" nascent genre, focusing on blending jazz interpretations from New Orleans street bands while making modern pop beats better with percussion and horns.
