A Guelph band called Passenger will be performing at the Boar's Head Pub at the Queen's Inn on Saturday night, Feb. 25. The band has been playing its "unique brand of funky psychedelic rock music" all across Southern Ontario several times a week since 2002.
"With rhythm and blues as its meat and potatoes, Passenger's music is generously spiced with funk, soul, folk, reggae and jazz musics," states a press release from the group. "One might say that the Allman Brothers, John Scofield, the Neville Brothers, Santana, Sly and the Family Stone, Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder, Van Morrison, Bill Withers, Neil Young and other artists of that ilk have all had a profound influence on this music."
Passenger's live show consists of Jim Slansky (guitar and vocals ), Sam Cino (drums and vocals), Jesse Turton (bass guitar and vocals).
