Rising Canadian-based indie band Bombargo, who've already caught the attention of Taylor Swift and Sir Richard Branson, will make their U.S. debut this fall when the group brings their "Good Time Guarantee" to the Western region of the country beginning September 19th in Hollywood, CA. The band's feel-good music -- including pop singles "Oxygen," which broke into Canada's Top 50 Hot AC radio chart this summer, and "Mr. No Good" as featured on Swift's first "Songs Taylor Loves" star-studded Spotify playlist - recently hit 2 million streams on Spotify.
"We couldn't be more excited to tour the USA for our very first time!," shares lead vocalist Nathan Thoen. "The inception of Bombargo happened at a music festival in the States, so having the opportunity to tour through this majestic country has the dream coming full circle!"
Following a run of dates throughout Western Canada in September, Bombargo will make their way into the U.S. for their first-ever run of dates in the country starting September 19th with a performance at the Hotel Café in Hollywood. From there, the septet's "North American Dream Tour" will stop in Santa Cruz, Berkeley, Seattle, Portland, Missoula, Salt Lake City and Fort Collins, among other markets, mixing headlining gigs with dates supporting The Main Squeeze, before wrapping in Denver on October 18th opening for Michael Franti & Spearhead at the brand-new Mission Ballroom. Tickets are on sale now; see below for full list of upcoming dates and visit www.bombargo.com for ticketing information.
Bombargo (Nathan Thoen [vocals], Spencer Chilliak [guitar/vocals], Anthony Thoen [guitar], Matt Folkerson [guitar/keys], Sammy Lee Folkerson [bass], Connor Newton [saxophone], Niall Cubbon [drums]) drops a vibrant splash of soul on their funky indie vibes with layers of rock and RnB infused throughout. The band brings unrivaled energy to the stage with sing-along anthems, magical five-part harmonies, and powerful messages of hope, happiness and chasing your dreams that combined make for one of the most passionate and memorable live shows ever - they guarantee it!
After attending the Sasquatch! Music Festival over five years ago, Nathan and Spencer were inspired to form a band. Bombargo soon put out an EP and, in 2017, released their debut full-length album, We Are Bombargo. The band has been rapidly making a name for themselves ever since with their captivating music and exuberant live performances, opening for John Butler Trio, Michael Franti & Spearhead and The Dead South along the way. Bombargo is currently writing and recording their second full-length record while shooting an autobiographic film set to coincide with the release.
