The Oot n’ Oots is a family band featuring brothers Gabe, Ezra, Ari and Matt Cipes and Ezra’s daughter Ruth. After touring and working as session musicians with acts such as Tegan & Sara and Bif Naked, the Cipes brothers returned to their family’s organic vineyard in Kelowna, BC to start their own families. It wasn’t long before the need to play music took over again, and they dedicated themselves to writing and performing music for kids of all ages, full of comedy and heart.
The Oot n’ Oots have performed at the Fat Cat Children’s Festival, at Festival Kelowna’s ‘Parks Alive’, and for the City of Peachland’s ‘Halloween Spooktacular’. Their debut album Songs and Tales from the Great Blue Whale was be released in 2016, and their follow-up, Electric Jellyfish Boogaloo will be released later this month.
