Koopa Troop brings the nostalgic sounds of video games to life in a quirky 5-piece ensemble. Donning their Nintendo-themed costumes, 5 Toronto jazz musicians embrace their inner nerd and become a live, musical nostalgia machine. Koopa Troop aims to induce flashbacks as they cover all the classic video game soundtracks from Mario to Megaman. Bringing the best video game composers to the forefront, Koopa Troop’s jazz, rock, funk, and swing-infused arrangements bring the epic pixelated melodies of the past into the real world.
An eight piece ensemble based out of Toronto, Ontario playing the greatest hits from video games with hints of funk, rock, and jazz.
