Prairie Dance Club

This Langley quartet’s unique blend of alternative folk rock is grounded in timeless melody and has steadily been winning over listeners since the band’s formation in the fall of 2007. The band has had their music in TV shows such as America’s Next Top Model and MTV’S 16 and Pregnant. Their song “Spring” was also featured in the PBS series Road Trip Nation. They were also a top ten finalist in the Shore 104.3′s Song Search competition for 2011.

Following the grant, he recorded his first full length album which will be released April 17th, 2012. Recorded at Five Acres Studios in Aldergrove, B.C. with the help of producer Ryan Mcallister (Dakona, Cowboys and Indians, Maverick Records), the album showcases heartfelt moments full of life experience, right alongside bursts of boisterous feel-good rock and roll.
