Join Floyd Meets Brown abd Chase The Bear for an evening of high voltage rock n roll and a performance you’ll never forget. Floyd Meets Brown is a dynamic four piece band formed in 2013 at Salmon Arm’s annual Roots and Blues festival. The group bends genres into a melting pot of funky grooves.
They released a six song EP Live Off the Floor in March 2015 with sound engineer Mike Pedersen at Music City Studios in Kelowna, followed recently by singles, “Funk You” and “Monsanto”. They are set to release a new concept album in the beginning of August.
Since their inception in 2017, Chase the Bear is quickly making a name for themselves on the west coast. In the wake of 2018, they won Live Acts’ Best in Vancouver competition at the sold-out Railway Stage & Beer Cafe and in March 2018, they caught the eye of radio DJ Jon Williams (The Zone 91.3) after a show at Victoria’s Capital Ballroom, who commented, “You must see this band. Let’s help them establish a core base and turn this into their proper new home. Canada is dripping in talent … Chase The Bear were relentless from start to finish.”
Inspired by the greatest music of the past century, Chase the Bear draws inspiration anywhere from the incredible songwriting of The Beatles, the hard-hitting instrumental proficiency of Led Zeppelin, and various elements of funk, soul, and modern rock in between.
Lead singer Troy Gilmore dominates the stage with his electrifying presence and smoky, powerhouse vocals while the rest of the band deliver tasty harmonies, raw musicianship, and an incredible amount of energy that rises throughout the show – a collaborative and intimate experience that ends with an explosion of talent, passion, sweat, and occasionally confetti.
