Band of Rascals is some of the finest foot-stompin’, hootin’ n’ hollerin’, hoedown, craze-driven, tasty blues born rock ‘n’ roll that you’ll find this side of the country.
Formed in June of 2013, the band quickly released two music videos for their singles, ‘Down to You’ and ‘Held in Thought (Not by You)’ to an overwhelmingly positive response. Fueled by the success of their singles, the band quickly gained a large and loyal following, resulting in a series of sold out shows, an exciting summer festival circuit, and a very successful EP pre-order campaign.
The band recently released their self-titled debut EP on November 7th and are already hard at work, successfully completing a BC tour in November, and following up with a Western Canadian tour in the new year.
