The Summer Rabbit - S/T (60's and 70's rock and roll, folk, blues, soul and psychedelic music) 2016


About
You want to know about us?

Well, we're a band. You probably knew that so I'll skip to the meat and potatoes. We're a pop-rock band from Sydney Nova Scotia that lives in the HRM. We tend to describe ourselves as a clean mix of the Beatles and the Band.

You know when you're driving around with your friends and THAT song comes on, and you all look at each other and start singing along and pretending to play the instruments? That's what we make people do.

​So you walk into a bar and you see this ecstatic guy singing these contagious lyrics, bouncing around and pounding away at his guitar; that's Blair Lucas. 


Blair writes 99% of our current material and he has been writing for years. You look to his left and see this slightly taller dude singing harmonies and playing what looks like a Hofner bass but it's actually just an Epiphone (You wouldn't believe how many people think it's a Hofner,) and he's wearing something probably stupid looking. That's Dan Taylor, what a weirdo. Last we have the rhythm keeper, the beat maker, the hoodie wearing specialist and all around A+ percussionist, Brett Chivari. 

​We've all known each other for awhile and we like to let that show in our interactions off and on stage. We've played a lot of typical bar shows, some festival related events like Action Week, some fundraisers like Run for the Cure and Children's Wish Foundation, and we managed to play the Savoy Theatre twice now. We've been climbing the gig ladder and are hoping to hop onto that nice shiny new ladder that hasn't been jumped on yet. We've had some air time on CKDU and a station in Germany which we think is pretty sweet- plus we had one of our singles on the Back Home NS Podcast. 

​Our debut album was released on October 1st 2016 and since then we've been working on tons of new material that we hope to get recorded for your listening pleasures soon! 

Check out our music page to hear us; and if you want us to come play a gig or event with you, send us an email- we'd love it.
