Since their inception in 2017, Chase the Bear has 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.”
In July to September 2018, Chase the Bear was featured in the Beatroute Magazine twice, appeared on Pacific Sound Radio, and went on a nine-date, multi-province tour, which included a performance at Grizfest Music Festival alongside Monster Truck, The Lazys, and other Canadian talent.

In late September, Chase the Bear went into Vancouver’s Monarch Studios to record their debut EP, three songs produced by Band of Rascals’ Malcom Owen-Flood (Lovecoast, Malahat, Jesse Roper). These songs are set to be released in the new year, with a tour to follow.

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.

Connor Brooks, Troy and Leo Gilmore, Braedan Royer, and Jordan Phillips show unrivaled chemistry on stage, proving that Chase the Bear is more than just a rock n’ roll revival band - they're a new animal altogether. Their aim is to show that four young men from Fort St. John and a guitar prodigy from North Carolina can do something genuine and unique, all the while having the time of their lives.

The Decadent Phase

From Lethbridge, AB, The Decadent Phase specialize in classic rock, with a healthy mix of classic covers and original material too.

The band came came together in early 2017, having met and jammed at various open mics in town.
Their influences span from hard rock to folk, including Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, the Clash and The Smiths, to Buffalo Springfield and the Byrds, all the way down to Bert Jansch, Jim Croce, and James Taylor, among many others.

With a wide set of original material and cover songs, James Swinney, Tyler Eresman, Ian Morrice, and Keilan Hakstol present a 70's vibe and a throwback to the glory days of Rock and Roll.
