Voodoo Rockfest

These guys give 1000% every time they hit the stage. We have been following these guys for a couple of years and every time we see them they just get better and better and put on one heck of a show.

Overflowing with attitude, Excuses Excuses is an alternative/punk rock band from Ontario, Canada. Packed with raw passion, energy, and a hint of good ol' Canadian grit; the trio, comprised of guitarist/vocalist Kyle Wilton, bassist Trevor Bowman and drummer Jason Nicoll, is driven to empower millennials to find strength in self-expression and individualism, and encourages people to live their lives to the fullest potential in our restrictive, modern society. Since their fruition 2016, the band has been developing their version of punk-infused alternative rock inspired by Canadian modern-punk bands, like PUP, The Flatliners, and The Dirty Nil, along with all your favourite stadium rock bands like Green Day, Billy Talent, My Chemical Romance, and Foo Fighters.

Over the past two and a half years of being a band, Excuses Excuses has self released two EPs, rendering them multiple top ten spots on Earshot! charts throughout the country, landing them on CBC radio, and helping them grow their following and online presence immensely. After sharing the stage with a few influential Canadian acts, such as Bleeker, Scenic Route To Alaska, MONOWHALES, Cleopatrick, Texas King, and We Were Sharks, and finishing their education; they decided to release their sophomore EP, Catch Me If You Can, on June 1, 2018 and hit the road to work on building rapport in the industry in addition to honing their skills as a live performing act.
