Hailing from Elora/Guelph ON, the Boo Radley Project is an eight piece (and sometimes larger depending on who is in town) genre-bending collective that fuses funk, indie and jazz. They’ve been likened to everyone from Tower of Power and Mr. Bungle to Primus and Wilco. But really, they’re just Boo, a ragtag group of brothers serving up a quirky, fresh approach to music.
Their live shows are high energy featuring an eclectic mix of instrumentation from electric mandolin to a three piece brass section. In addition to the music, the band uses projections to compliment the live performance, creating an immersive, sensory experience. 2017 marks their fifth performance in some capacity at Riverfest Elora and we couldn’t be happier to have the boys back. Their long-awaited debut LP Bred To Be Loyal will be released Spring 2017.
They also want you to know they had a baby dolphin named after them. It’s called Boo and is swimming somewhere off the shores of Hawaii.
