Drawing inspiration from the best and worst of 70s and 80s pop hits, Calgarys okayest disco band combines old sounds with
new flavour to make you boogie
Squanto began as a solo project for Bobby Henderson (Vocals, Guitar). Initially recruiting Wil Moralda (Keyboards) as a producer for Henderson's debut album "Rose Gold" (Oct 2016) the relationship grew into a collaborative songwriting effort. The band now performs and writes with Tyler Shields (Bass), Connor Mead (Drums), Graeme Rice (Guitar), and Craig Davidson (Keyboards) - taking influence from classic disco, soul, and funk hits of the 70s and 80s.
After beginning the year by performing at Calgary music festival, BIG Winter Classic, Squanto released their latest single 'Wutcha Gonna Do' (available through all streaming services and bandcamp) and has been promoting it through performances at local venues as well as playing street festivals such as this year's Lilac Festival, Inglewood Night Market, and Marda Gras.
The band is currently writing and recording new material to release early 2019.
