Where: Quebec City, QC
CM Issue: July-August 2013
The Robert’s Creek Saloon is a band built around the principle of not setting limits or planning in advance, and it’s a decision that comes across loud and clear in their music. Equal parts ska, swing, cabaret, and rock, the band pulls the listener across multiple genres on an extremely fun musical ride.
Named after an artistic community in British Columbia, the band imagines they sound like what one might expect to be playing in a saloon there, should one ever be built. Fans of Gogol Bordello will love this home-grown take on fun genre mashing, as will those who embrace the band’s commitment to spontaneity and unconventional paths. The Robert’s Creek Saloon released a self-titled EP in 2012 and are currently making it available on their Bandcamp page. What are you waiting for? Go get it!
