We are The Wild! & we are fucking crazy.
We are The Wild! & We are fucking crazy!
Former bandmates of the successful independent act, Bucknife, Dylan Villain (guitar/vocals), Lucas ‘Boozus’ Jancikic (bass/vocals) and Rowdy Rick Riegs (drums) amalgamated to create a sound that is properly described as “the bastard son of AC/DC and ZZ Top”.
Hailing from Kelowna, British Columbia, The Wild! are living anything but the cliché faux-California lifestyle the Okanagan is known for. Instead, they are ripe with grit, Southern-fried twang and a give-‘em-hell attitude that has struck a chord with listeners everywhere. Blending a bold mixture of supercharged rock and roll, blues and equipped punkrock attitude, The Wild! is recognized as being a reckless group of individuals who write music for reckless groups of individuals. “We aim to write music that makes people feel something” says frontman, Dylan Villain. “Whether it’s to dance, yell, fight or just get straight up fuckin’ crazy, we’re writing this music with strong conviction for what we stand for; having a good time in the name of the party and in the name Rock and Roll.” Further to the point, The Wild! is quick to admit that they draw their influence from their troubled pasts, the road, and good old fashioned parties. Backed by the gratuitous citing by Raw Dog (The Jason Ellis Show) that legitimately labels The Wild! as “Shitkicker Rock”, the band embodies the unpolished backwoods with a sincerity to produce a musical experience that is nothing short of fucking brilliant.
2012 proved to be an eventful year for The Wild! with their first single, Road House, released. Road House was then featured on The Jason Ellis Show on FACTION (Sirius/XM) and is in current rotation in the UK (Steve Taylor’s show ‘Retro Rock’ on 102.5FM – Stourbridge), Canada (Power 104.7FM – Kelowna) and on various online stations such as Punkradiocast.ca and Hotshotbands.com. After teaming up with Vancouver hip-hop music video director, Stuey Kubrick, the Road House music video received more than 10,000 views in its first week and an additional 20,000 views within the first month. Backing the vision, sound and attitude of The Wild! Adrian Grenier, star of Entourage and owner of Wreckroom Records in NYC, posted a link to the Road House video on his Twitter feed.
Maintaining the momentum of the past year, The Wild! is currently working on their EP, Wild at Heart, slated for an early 2013 release. Following up Road House, Party ‘til You’re Dead is expected to be the next single to go viral. The Wild! hasn’t only garnered a reputation for their vocals, but also their stage presence and with plans for a spring tour in the works, The Wild! delivers fans straight-up good-time parties celebrating a no-bullshit approach to music and entertainment.
Bye Bye Baby
Dirty, Funky Rock ‘N Roll from the Bridge City!
Bye Bye Baby creates a sonic platform of rock, punk, funk and blues right in the heart of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The band’s unique collection of high energy personalities manifests in their blistering and entertaining live shows. Currently the band is in the studio starting production on their debut EP.
The summer of 2014 looks promising as the band has numerous live shows booked and is looking forward to the release of their demo album.
Starting back in the early 90’s the guys were finding a passion and a direction, using their influences to create a mold for their original platform, creating life long friendships along the way. Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Social Distortion, Offspring and Rancid were some of the artists that paved the way. As the years went by and the love for music grew, more and more musicians influenced the overall sound.
Sublime, Jimi Hendrix, Rage Against the Machine, CCR, The Highwaymen,
Tragically Hip, the list goes on and on.
Combining these classic influences has enabled Bye Bye Baby to hone in on a sound that is their own, defining their songwriting abilities, all the while paying tribute to the great musicians that made it all possible.
Wenches and Rogues
Wenches and Rogues is a Celtic rock band from Saskatoon, SK. They combine heavy rock and metal with traditional Irish and Scottish music.
Wenches & Rogues is a Celtic Rock band from Saskatoon, SK. They combine traditional Irish and Scottish music with hard rock, punk and heavy metal influences. They are currently working on their first full-length album, with both originals and amped-up traditional tunes.
Wenches and Rogues first got together August 2012. They eventually solidified their lineup with Kristen Ratzlaff (vocals, oboe), Pierre Bazin (vocals, bagpipes, whistles, bass), Trevor Merrigan (lead guitar), Andrew Fitch (rhythm guitar), Carmela Brockman (bass, accordion), Booker Blakely (fiddle) and Brennan Lane (drums). More recently welcomed Curtis Damman early May of 2014 (drums). They made their live debut July 2013 and have since played several shows in Saskatoon at various venues and events, including Folkfest’s Scottish pavilion, Louis events such as Robert Burn’s Night and End of Classes Bash,and Relay For Life.
Wenches & Rogues continues to work hard on new material, writing and recording for their first full-length album. Their heavy style brings a new sound to traditional classics, and their originals pay homage to their Irish and Scottish roots. Keep an eye out for this group as they work their way further into the Saskatoon music scene.
Shiny things and loud noises.
