Barmitzvah Brothers Canadian Music Week 2004 March 3 to 6, Toronto ON


Guelph, ON’s the Barmitzvah Brothers, not Jewish and not related, are the trio of Jenny Mitchell, Geordie Gordon and John Jemeson Merrit backed by music-wielding sisters the Lethargians, as well as a few other friends. Showcasing their acclaimed "indie polka folk rock circus," their guise was as charming and offbeat as the Danielson Famile’s, whom they obviously love. The humble musings of Mitchell were adorable and the powerhouse drumming of Gordon (who suffered an injury from his poundings) saw him repeatedly bouncing off of his stool.
