Bio

BamBoo has rocked packed shows at many of Toronto’s historic venues including The Horseshoe Tavern, Lee’s Palace, The Silver Dollar, and Cameron House with their unique blend of melodic pop and post-rock. Combining their own light show with percussive audience participation, BamBoo has taken their live show to new heights and plan to back it up with new music throughout the year.

BamBoo's first EP, Mountains, was released in Spring of 2014 and helped establish the band with local promoters in Toronto. Chances, BamBoo’s first full-length album, was released in September, 2015. This year, bandmates Steve Benjamins, Mike Schmidt, Nick Collett and Marcus Retterath are currently working on a "3P". They'll be releasing three 3-song EP's every three months. The first 3P - Charms -  was released digitally in February 2017. Recording is underway for the next 3P - Crowds. Once all the 3P's are finished a physical full-length album comprised of the 3P's will be released featuring bonus tracks and additional digital content.
