Born from the fusing of four uniquely talented Winnipeg, Canada based musicians, Apollo Suns have created a refreshing and innovative sound combining instrumental, rock, jazz and experimental music.
Apollo Suns began in 2015 by Ed Durocher (guitar) and Dave Guenette’s (bass) and they soon after picked up Ethan McKibben (drums) and Chad Braun(keyboards). Trumpet player, Phil Collins, and percussionist, Paul Klassen, often accompany their live shows.
Apollo Suns constantly challenge themselves in their writing by constructing jazz influenced songs with the end goal of maintaining an overall accessible and catchy track for listeners of all kinds.
Some of their most notable shows include support slots for WCMA winners Mariachi Ghost and Five Alarm Funk, Mahogany Frog and Bend Sinister; have been included on UMFM 101.5FM compilation album Transmissions (2016), as well as a showcase at Shine on Music
Festival in 2016.
