Mayday and the BeatCreeps Bio

MayDay is the first of May.

BeatCreeps are found in the highs and lows of the musical spectrum.

Together, they are a high-energy blend of Folk and Hip Hop.

 

Luck intervened early in the first summer as a band, as MayDay and the BeatCreeps played a headline spot at the North Country Fair Volunteer party – from there things just seemed to fall into place.  They were offered a slot at the upcoming Wild Mountain Music Festival to perform after the acclaimed band "The Sheepdogs", and were invited back to play the following year after the "Sam Roberts Band". Since then they have continued to develop their sound and performance by playing countless shows, such as Sonic 102.9’s “Band of the Month” showcase on three separate occasions, hosting an EP release to a sold out show in February 2013, and touring Western Canada several times.

Originally a four-piece band, MayDay and the BeatCreeps gained momentum and added three very talented and dedicated members that have helped push their sound and live performance to a level that they are extremely proud to present to any audience today.

 

As a seven-piece band of multi-instrumentalists, MayDay and the BeatCreeps create many diverse sounds; from the interesting acoustic guitar riffs, to the subtle tinkling’s of the piano, from the folky ambiance of the banjo, to the rhythmic bounce of rapping, from the creative bass lines, to the sweet serenade of a female voice, and from the deep Hip Hop beat of the drums, to the screams of the trumpet – this band knows how to get people dancing!
