(u) the Band
(U) is a band that must be seen to be believed. Hailing from Guelph Ontario, most of the members have been playing together since 1997; prior bands include Jerrycan and Sinister Trailer Park Magic. Rufus joined the band in 2009 after an 8 year run with the band M.S.G. (U) has toured Canada, most of the US and Europe playing over 1500 shows from backyards and community halls to major festivals and stadiums.
After ten years of playing in a punk rock band (Jerrycan) the band decided to shift gears and start a project called Sinister Trailer Park Magic. They signed on to a semi-major label and recorded their first album, which ended up taking two years to release. When the album was finally released the label went under due to poor record sales and as a result the album was heard by few. Internet downloading, you know the story.
Frustrated, the band decided to go back to the studio to write and regroup. Four years later the band has written over seventy five new tunes, trying them out in small venues across Canada and receiving great reviews show after show.
