Blues/Rock 4-piece from Calgary, AB featuring riff-driven guitar work anchored in soulful vocals.
"Marcus Trummer is most certainly someone to take notice of. He has that something extra – in spades in fact." - Local Drop Magazine
Led by riff-driven guitar work anchored in soulful vocals, the Marcus Trummer Band from Calgary, Canada features a fresh blend of blues, rock & roll, and soul. The band was started after frontman Marcus Trummer met guitarist Linden Conroy at the National Music Centre's Jam Club in Calgary and bassist Karl Salingua while performing together in the Alberta International Band Festival Honour Jazz Band. Joined by Marcus's brother Silas on drums, the band brings a new young energy to an old school sound. Since forming in early 2018, the 4-piece group has been playing many shows and festivals at various locations in and around Calgary. Highlights from this past year include playing a set in the Studio Bell Performance Hall at the National Music Centre, opening for the Mocking Shadows at Ironwood Stage & Grill and playing multiple shows with Peter & The Wolves including as part of Heritage Park's outdoor summer concert series.
The band currently hosts a monthly jam at The Blues Can and were recently featured in a Local Drop Magazine article highlighting the success of their jam. This fall they released their debut single, “Good Times” and are currently working on releasing more music in 2019.
Venues played in 2018: The National Music Centre, Ironwood, The Blues Can, Festival Hall, Ship and Anchor, Broken City, Junction YYC, Without Papers Pizza, Heritage Park Music in the Plaza, Atlantic Trap & Gill, Jane Bond BBQ, Kane's Harley Diner, Bridgeland-Riverside Farmers' Market and Robert McClure Farmers' Market.
