The Mash Potato Mashers are a mobile band creating music wherever they go. Blending diverse musical traditions (Balkan, Klezmer, Brazilian, New Orleans, Funk, Marching Band, Country, etc.), this group energizes a city space and creates a venue for performance. The timing of Nuit Blanche in Guelph coincides with the first weekend of the Fall term at the University, so the streets were filled with students. The students were ‘costumed up’ appropriately and prepped to perform for their own audiences. A magical musical mash-up happened when the worlds of the Mashers and the students collided.
