Band on a Couch

Remember MTV Unplugged? Think of BOAC as a new (and improved?) version of an intimate evening of music, set on a couch...

Unplugged bands rocking out on a couch... Discover new music every week as we present a new video featuring original material from the indie, folk, rock and alternative genres.  

Eli and the Straw Man

Special shout out to Arih Struger-Kalkman for running the sound on this session. It sounds great!

The Super Group Eli and the Straw Man came by for a sit down on the couch. Luckily they brought all of their instruments and we asked them to play us some tunes. Holding the record for butts on couch, this was a downright jolly good time. If you haven't heard these songs yet, prepare to have them in your head for weeks to come. : 

1. Eli and the Straw Man will be playing at In the Soil Festival on April    25th at the Hub Mainstage at 2pm. 
2. This band is proof the Niagara music scene is awesome. So many  familiar faces all doing what they love.
3. Eli and crew are working on a debut album. This makes us excited  and hopeful for time travel so we don't have to wait. (perhaps we will ask Road Waves)
4. This was our first trumpet on the couch, it was played perfectly.
5. We love Sundays!
