Ever heard of a Django Reinhardt-style cover of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean”? How about “Pump up the Jam”? These irreverent gypsy jazz vagabonds will delight you with their surprisingly smart covers of 80’s classics.
The Lost Fingers is a Canadian gypsy jazz music group based in Quebec City.The band's name was inspired by gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt who lost the use of two fingers following a fire. Its members are Alex Morissette (backing vocals, double bass), Dr. Christian "Dirt" Roberge (lead vocals, guitar), and Byron "Maiden" Mikaloff (backing vocals, guitar). Lost in the 80s, their 2008 debut album, earned a platinum certification for sales of 100,000 within Quebec alone within 12 weeks of its release.
