The Retrievers

The Retrievers are a dynamic five piece rock band with roots in Guelph Ontario, currently expanding into the musical hotbed of Toronto. They encompass the virtues of classic rock with careful attention to insightful lyrics, powerful riffs and captivating musicianship. What really sets the band apart is their ability to span many different genres while staying true to the Retrievers style.

It is not uncommon for them to seamlessly weave from rock to blues, and reggae to funk while fascinating audiences with the ability to switch instruments throughout. While musical freedom and creativity is an unmistakable theme within the group, their professionalism is what has lead to the success of their energetic and entertaining live performances.

Founders of the group Alex Frank (Lead vocals and guitar) and Jarred McCall (drums and vocals) learned the value of this balance when they received an Ontario Independant Music Award for Best Alternative Song in 2008. Rounding out the group are multi-instrumentalists and fellow songwriters Jesse Ronan, Nick Broster, and Nick Ronan.

As a collective, The Retrievers have created a musical melting pot, synthesizing different genres and sounds, highlighted by melodic hooks, and a seemingly endless supply of songs that are recruiting more fans every time they take the stage. Fresh off their first full length album, The Retrievers are kicking it into high gear and are a band to be following in the months to come.
