July 29 – The Bystanders and Kevin Roy & Logan McKillop

The BystandersDoors open at 8:00pm.  Show starts at 8:30pm.
Admission: $5
Cash bar.

On July 29, enjoy an evening of live music as Regina’s The Bystanders share the stage with Manitoba’s Kevin Roy and Logan McKillop at the Creative City Centre.

The Bystanders are an indie-folk and roots band from Regina, Saskatchewan, whose music is best described as “prairie fresh”.  The band was formed after brothers Davin and Judd Stachoski locked themselves in an abandoned warehouse in a frosty February in 2009, and emerged with a 10-song demo disc.  The disc garnered a lot of excitement among friends and family and frequent airplay on community radio, so The Bystanders decided to take the songs to the stage, with Corey Rhiendel on bass and Nathan Streifel filling out the foursome on drums.

Kevin Roy & Logan McKillopGrowing up on the edge of Riding Mountain National Park in Manitoba, Canada, Logan McKillop has a multitude of songs for every change in the prairie sky. Being a modern day traveling troubadour, he has seen it all; from the jungles of Cambodia, the rainforests of Peru, the highlands of Scotland, to the rugged tundra of Baffin Island, Logan’s travels and experiences have shaped his ever expanding catalogue of sound. With an eclectic blend of influences from raw folk, smooth jazz, energy fueled bluegrass to lonesome country, Logan McKillop will appeal to audiences’ young and old. With a tune for every occasion, whether it’s a whiskey soaked Saturday night or a quiet Sunday afternoon, his honesty in storytelling will leave you captivated. His debut album titled “Prairie Sky” was released on March 23rd, 2013.

Everyone loves a good story. Winnipeg alt-country troubadour, Kevin Roy, shares his songs as if telling a story for the first time over morning coffee.

He sings earnest tales and comedic balladry with heartfelt melodies and hook-driven choruses. His tall-grass poetry paints images of Canadiana and experiences of the roads he has travelled. If Lyle Lovett and Blue Rodeo went on a fishing trip together in the Canadian Shield, they just might pen the next Kevin Roy album.
