Road Waves has been touring heavily across Canada for the past 6 years while curating an energetic, soulful, and funky show that consistently pushes the bar. Their heartfelt songs in combination with top-notch musicianship conjure unique musical adventures night after night. This powerful unit shows no sign of slowing down as they build their history across Canada, USA, and eventually world recognition.
Their adventurous nature makes it a challenging task to define the energy-packed jamband that touches on the roots of R&B, funk, blues, rock, and jazz. Their shows are built on a philosophy of playing from their hearts/open minds, making for an exciting journey with a huge sound. The synergy with their audience is apparent from the start, and each time a song is played, it grows and develops as a better version of itself–much like the living being that is music. Road Waves is not a band to miss on the touring/festival circuit.
Since their inception in 2014, the band has presented 2 albums, 6 singles and 6 years of major cross-country touring. Directly after the world went into lockdown in March of 2020, Road Waves started live streaming concerts and creating quarantine videos to stay connected with fans despite the lack of touring. They finished the summer of 2020 off with a successful social-distanced drive-in concert. 2021 was spent crafting material for the 3rd LP, working hard on their live performance as well as a 10-show Southern Ontario Fall Tour. Now in 2022, Road Waves has begun releasing new music and just completing a 70+ show tour across North America. Keep an eye out for shows near you and an even more eventful 2023!
