Palooka is back! After an 8-year hiatus as a band, Eron, Jay and Joe are back and want to RAWK THE ROOF…. HARD. Palooka is Joe Lapinski (The Woodshed Orchestra, The Joe Lapinski Band, Bronx Cheerleader), Jay Peters (The Silver Hearts, Magna Cum Loud) and Eron Stroud (Bronx Cheerleader, Rose Garland). Formed in 1999 and based in St. Catharines, Palooka won the hearts of indie, prog, funk and jam band fans right off the bat, making the then-newly opened Merchant Ale House their home away from home. Their music can be described as “progressive-indie Can-RAWK”.
>> If Pavement, Rheostatics, Thin Lizzy and Rush were approved to adopt a Canadian trio rock outfit together, it would be Palooka.
DRFTR is the brain child of Oscar AS. Writing about love lost and the dirty bits inbetween, DRFTR blends soul & folk, and hints elements of pop. Upon completion of his first ever release “DRFTR”, Oscar has spent the better part of the last two years playing around the Niagara region playing with many notable artists such as: Knife the wolf, Abigail Lapell, Stereo Sunrise, Claire Coupland, Majora, Flat Rock, Ed Sawyers and many more canadian DIY artists.
>> DRFTR is a kick in the ass and a horrible philosophy
