About Apollo Suns

Founded by Ed Durocher, Apollo Suns is a 9-piece instrumental collective from Winnipeg, Manitoba. The band fuses the influence of jazz, rock and psychedelic music, to create their own unique sounds with the dancefloor in mind. They have self-released three EPs: ‘Each Day a Different Sun’ (2017), ‘Dawn Offerings’ (2019), ‘A Relationship of Force’ (Color Red, 2021), and were awarded “Instrumental Artist of the Year” at Western Canadian Music Awards in both 2018/2020. In 2022, Apollo Suns returned to the studio with Juno award-winning producer Ben Kaplan (Five Alarm Funk, Mother Mother, The Rare Americans) to record their latest album, ‘Departures’. The band is signed to the Canadian label Do Right Music, home to The Souljazz Orchestra, Soul Motivators, and Luvmenauts. Developed over many tours trying out different arrangements and grooves, their new single ‘Pluto’ became a fan favourite at live shows due to its heavy horns, dynamic groove, and catchy melody. “Pluto is a many-faced god who is capable of great kindness but also is temperamental. We wanted the song and artwork to convey that feeling to listeners.” Best known for their high-octane live shows, Apollo Suns have captivated audiences at Winnipeg Jazz Festival, Big Fun Festival, Vermont Jazz Fest, and Calgary Stampede. Some of their most notable shows include support slots for The Comet is Coming, Makaya McCraven, Anomalie, The Brooks, and Five Alarm Funk. The core group includes Ed Durocher (Guitar), Tim Iskierski (Drums), Erika Einarson (Percussion), Bryn Herperger (Bass), Garrett Malenko (Trumpet), Benjamin James Hill (Trombone), Aaron Bartel (Bari Sax) and Anatol Rennie (Keyboards/Synths).

About The Static Shift

The Static Shift; the dynamic Indie Canadian rock & roll band, powered by Mitchell Brady (guitar/lead vocals), Kyle Tenove (bass) and Taylor Miles (drums). With a sound described as tight and unquestionably groovy, The Static Shift aims to transport audiences away through a soulful musical experience. Inspired by classic rock and blues sounds, as well as alternative, indie, and psychedelic rock, the group has only begun their journey to produce sweet, sonic goodness. With multiple successful albums, including singles “Wide Awake”, “1965”and “Feeling Fine”, which hit #7, #14 and #81 on the Canada Active Rock charts respectively, The Static Shift continues to build a passionate and sincere following. They’ve toured and performed alongside the likes of The Cult, Billy Talent, Marianas Trench, Collective Soul, April Wine, Kansas, Big Sugar, Walk Off The Earth, and Trooper. Having recently recorded with Juno award winning producer Russell Broom at OCL Studios, the band is beyond excited to share these future releases. When you find your feet momentarily planted in the presence of one of their electrifying shows, you can expect a whole lot of character fuelled rock blasting from their very souls.
