Realm to host rock show Sunday

Saskatoon alt-rockers Bombargo visit on Western Canadian EP release tour

Saskatoon-based alt-rockers Bombargo will be the next entry in a newly developed music series at Realm Food Co. when the group plays Sunday as part of its Born on Main Western Canadian Tour.

Made up of vocalist Nathan Thoen, guitarist Spencer Chilliak, bassist Graham Tilsley and drummer Phil Kashap, Bombargo, one of Saskatoon’s up and coming bands, delivers modern, bluesy and soulful stylings. With songs about believing in your potential, self-realization, and pursuing your dreams, these sonic trendsetters are not only skilled craftsmen at delivering great music, but they come with powerful and inspiring messages on- and off-stage.

All of the members take pride in being part of the growing communities and upbringing of the band’s hometown.

With the recent online release of their Back on Main EP last July, Bombargo has decided to donate all online proceeds to aid in the Northern Saskatchewan forest fire relief, to support those still affected, displaced and in need.

The band recently finished recording two brand new singles at the Sweat Shoppe in Saskatoon with producer/engineer Scott Neufeld, and have recently released a new single and video for the song, Precious Time (Lately), released late December 2015.

Sunday’s show at Realm is one of seven stops for the group in B.C., including concerts in Victoria March 15 and Vancouver March 17.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and the music starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20, and can be purchased online at realmfoodco.com/events. Remaining tickets will be available at the door.
