About this Event

Michael Franti

Michael Franti is a musician, humanitarian, filmmaker, and activist who is recognized as a pioneering force in the music industry. He believes that there is a great battle taking place in the world today between cynicism and optimism, so he made his most recent album, Stay Human Vol. II, his highest charting album to date, to remind himself - and anyone who’s listening - that there is still good in the world and that it is worth fighting for. The songs on Stay Human Vol. II were inspired by Franti’s new self-directed documentary, Stay Human, which released in January and won an array of awards at film festivals worldwide. Throughout his multi-decade career, Franti has earned four Billboard #1 singles with triumphantly hopeful hits such as “Sound of Sunshine” and “Say Hey (I Love You),” 5 Top 30 Hot AC singles, eight Top 25 AAA Singles and four Billboard Top 5 Rock Albums and topped multiple charts with his latest release. Michael owns Soulshine Bali, the leading yoga retreat hotel in Ubud, Bali, and co-founded Do It For The Love with his wife, Sara Agah Franti, a wish granting organization that brings people living with life threatening illnesses, children with severe challenges, and wounded veterans to any live concert anywhere in the world. To date, they have granted over 2,000 wishes!

Bombargo

Bombargo is a Canadian based international touring band who drops a vibrant splash of soul over their distinctive ‘vintage-pop’ sound. Well known for bringing an unrivalled energy to the stage with sing along anthems, double-brother harmonies and a powerful message that combined make for one of the most captivating live shows ever! Frontman Nathan Thoen's passionate conviction and ‘Jagger-like’ dance moves even impressed billionaire and music industry icon Sir Richard Branson, quoting “I haven’t seen this type of energy since The Rolling Stones!” - and he would know, having personally signed The Rolling Stones to Virgin Records.

The band began with lead singer Nathan Thoen and guitarist Spencer Chilliak after the two spontaneously met and drove 16 hours to attend Sasquatch Music Festival where they became inspired to start a band. The duo wrote their debut single “Let It Grow” during their very first writing session and as part of Bombargo’s debut EP Back on Main which would go on to be included in “The Top 10 Best Saskatchewan Albums of 2015” by SaskMusic. This further inspired them to continue writing, touring, and release their first full-length album titled We Are Bombargo. The group has since evolved into a 7-piece touring band adding Nathan’s brother Anthony Thoen on guitar, additional brothers Matt and Sammy Folkersen on keys and bass respectively, Connor Newton on saxophone, and Niall Cubbon on drums.

Bombargo went on to receive massive acclaim when pop star icon Taylor Swift added their 2018 single “Mr. No Good” to her Spotify Playlist titled “Songs Taylor Loves” alongside mega artists including Ed Sheeran, Camilla Cabello, and Kendrick Lamar. Being the only unsigned band on this star-studded playlist saw Bombargo featured on CBC’s the Q, NME, Exclaim, Fashion, Noisey, People, and Billboard. This success was followed up by the release of their most successful single to date - “Oxygen” which pushed Bombargo into the Canadian Hot AC Top 40 Charts for the first time in fall of 2019. The band also made its US touring debut in late 2019 with their 33 date “North American Dream Tour” which kicked off with Bombargo playing the sold-out Roughriders Labour Day Classic Half-Time Show to over 33,000 people. The bands highly anticipated US debut at Hotel Cafe in Hollywood, CA gained heavy press coverage including a raving article in Billboard Magazine.

Bombargo has opened for legendary acts including John Butler Trio, Michael Franti & Spearhead, The Dead South, Joel Plaskett. Has surpassed 2.5 million streams on Spotify, received over 500,00 views on Youtube, and was nominated for the Saskatchewan Music Awards “Pop/Rock Artists of the Year” in both 2018 and 2019. There’s no doubt Bombargo will continue spreading The Goodtime Guarantee™ long into the future with a new full length album set to release in 2020 as well as an extensive touring schedule including mainstage performances at Okeechobee Music Festival, Electric Forest Music Festival, and many more!
