A “SHINY disco ball hat wearing, ultimate genre hopping” band are taking the music industry by storm one mustard coloured step at a time.

With fans including Paolo Nutini and the Still Game cast, Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5 are no stranger to the world of entertainment.

With their sounds described as ranging from rock ‘n’ roll, reggae, flamenco, old school and new school the band are sure to appeal to the most eclectic of musical tastes.

There are 14 members, including a dancer who is known for crowd surfing in an inflatable dinghy to and from the stage.

Kirstin McNair, the band's 36-year-old trumpet player from Johnstone, who also performs in a local brass band and Glasgow samba group Sambayabamba, said: “The band has a real mixture of personalities.

“There’s John, the Colonel, our front man who knows how to grab the attention of the audience.

“We’ve played at gigs where you could cut the atmosphere with a knife in the beginning but somehow with only a few songs in, the place would be bouncing.

“The brass section, including myself also play for Glasgow’s samba band, Sambayabamba.

“We’ve also recently started a youth street band to encourage disengaged children to participate in music.”

The band's vibe however is slightly more wacky and a fan recently described them as an adult version of the Singing Kettle.

The Mustard dress sense is very yellow however, Kirstin confesses she can be rebellious with the dress code on occasion.

“I’m more of a black and yellow kinda girl,” she said.

“Mustard is not the most flattering colour to wear all over.

“When we won Best Scottish Live Act at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards last year, I bought six yellow dresses to choose from whereas the guys found it really easy to find an outfit.”

Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5’s biggest achievements include last year’s Best Live Act award for the Scottish Alternative Music Award and the Best UK Act for Pure M magazine.

Despite having 42 upcoming shows, the band pride themselves on not taking their music too seriously and gig goers are rarely without a smile on their face after an event.

‘How Many Many’s Are Too Many Many?’ is rumoured to be one of Paolo Nutini’s favourites.

The band also have a song called ‘It Always Ends in Tears With a Ginger Girl’ which celebrates those with red hair, that often results in them coming on stage to sing the song with them.

Kirstin added: “I like seeing what our music does to people.

“We call our fans the Dijon 6th as they are very much part of the band."

“Sometimes I feel like there are more of them on stage than there are of us.

“Every gig has it’s own scenario, from congas going through the Clutha Bar to wrestling with the ICW wrestlers.”
