CHASE THE BEAR with ERIC LAROCQUE
Hailing originally from Fort St. John but currently based out of Victoria, Chase The Bear is a young band – it was formed in 2017 – whose five members seemingly have very old souls, being inspired by everyone from Led Zeppelin to the masters of vintage soul and funk and southern rock.
Lead singer Troy Gilmore is a charismatic powerhouse, while bandmates Connor Brooks, Leo Gilmore, Braedan Royer, and Jordan Phillips have all the instrumental chops, onstage chemistry, and rock-star swagger you’d ever need for a wild good time at a nightclub.
That’s doubtless why they won the Live Acts’ Best in Vancouver contest at the historic Railway Club stage in 2018. And also why they’ve been embraced by cheering audiences while also earning the respect of industry professionals. With a brand new EP in hand, these amazing rockers are heading for major-league success.
Check out the video to witness a masterful, old school performance.
