The Nanaimo-based Herbicidal Maniacs bring their original folk-rock sound to the French Creek Marina Pub for an evening of entertainment beginning at 8 p.m. this Saturday.
Herbicidal Maniacs are made up of Steve Palen on vocals and acoustic guitar, Roly Sandoval on lead guitar, Ed van Benthem on drums, Dan Dubé on keyboards and vocals and Brent Redberger on bass.
Their sound is anchored in the folk/rock of the 1960s and 70s, but this is not a cover band. They write and perform their own original tunes, using the members’ diverse musical backgrounds to create a tapestry with threads of blues and jazz woven through the work.
