BamBoo is Marcus Retterath (vocals, guitar), Michael Schmidt (bass), Steve Benjamins (vocals, keys) and Nick Collett (drums).
The band was started by Retterath, Schmidt and Collett after spending the summer of 2013 jamming. Then in the fall of 2013 Benjamins was brought onboard to complete the final lineup of BamBoo.
The band was quick to pick up shows in Toronto and embarked on a collaborative effort to solidify material for their first EP: Mountains (released May 2014).
BamBoo plays a unique mix of rock and indie that is undeniably influenced by the great Canadian bands that came before them such as Broken Social Scene, Half Moon Run, and Tokyo Police Club. BamBoo has enjoyed a string of well attended shows at The Silver Dollar and The Velvet Underground.
