The Usual Suspects
Retro & Modern Rock / Party Band from Victoria BC
Contact DetailsMark McKee
The Usual Suspects is made up of five highly experienced players. Extensive touring backgrounds and differing musical styles. From italian wedding bands to Heavy Metal. With four players that are adept at vocals, the bands harmonies are finely layered. The varied styles of music is also a different approach for a cover band. The Usual Suspects tries to stay away from the typical top 40 cover band lists. The material is all well known but differs from what has typically been played by cover bands. The band has undergone several changes over the last few years...The latest is the addition of costume changes throughout their shows. From skinny black ties and dyed hair to spandex pants, the band is always trying to extend their stage appeal. The bands popularity has steadily grown over the last 4 years and they now enjoy invitations to prestigious events in and around Victoria. They have also been broadening their music industry relationships with other local bands and are doing more and more "DUEL" shows (Nuvo Wavo and The Crawl) The Usual Suspects are also committed to performing for at least two benefit concerts per year and will consider any requests. The band covers allot of material from the 1980's, as well as some more current top 40 material. Made up of Lead Vocals, Guitar, Drums, Bass and Keyboards, this line up allows the band much flexibility in selecting material. From Van Halen to Huey Lewis the news, from Phil Collins to The Fix and the Romantics. Some have said that the band sounds like the original acts that they cover but more similar to what one would expect from the covered bands "Live". Subtle changes/paraphrasing gives the band this unique quality.
