"Frankie McQueen are a blues trio based out of Calgary, AB that bring you back to the roots of rock n’ roll. Taking the “balls out” approach when it comes to their live show, the stage is where this trio feels most at home and their onstage chemistry shows true brotherhood. Encompassing the attitude of Seattle grunge and the swagger of ZZ-Top, their music is distinguished by soulful melodies, hard-hitting drums, and fluid bass lines with the odd screaming guitar solo peppered in.
Formed in 2007 by vocalist Scotty Charles and drummer Connor Muth, the three piece has never been afraid to take risks and push the standards of rock and roll. The addition of bassist Corey Adams was a huge stepping stone in creating the sound they now possess and was the catalyst that turned this rock group into a band of brothers.
Since the release of their self titled EP in the spring of 2012, Frankie McQueen has had the opportunity to open for the likes of Sam Roberts Band, Flash Lightnin’, Bedouin Soundclash, and Daniel Wesley (to name a few). Having the philosophy of getting out and cutting their teeth on the road, FMQ are not afraid to work day and night.
In June 2014, the band released their second EP “Nightride”, recorded and produced by Kirill Telichev. They’re spending the next year touring throughout Canada including shows from Vancouver to Toronto. " - https://www.facebook.com/fmqmusic/timeline
"Deeply entrenched in striking natural imagery, Mammoth Grove's powerful sonic creations evoke the heaviness of 70’s Rock and psychedelic stoner jams
The band's collective musical inspiration knows no boundaries, ranging from grunge, indie, doom metal, blues and beyond. However, what really drives the trio is the beauty and brilliance found in nature. Many of their songs contain stirring recollections of time spent amongst giants of the forest. Additionally, Mammoth Grove thrives within live jam sessions, connecting to the ever powerful flow-state to fuel their creative process." - https://www.facebook.com/mammothgrove/timeline
