We’re Confusionaires, and we’re a trio from Edmonton that started out as a rockabilly band but has managed to punch our way out of that box over the course of 3 full-length albums and 2 EPs. We’ve evolved into a twangy rock & roll band with a heavy roots/country influence… but we hit it pretty hard. We are prolific song crafters and are right at home in the studio, but we’ve also played extensively in Alberta, and are focused on spreading out into BC and Saskatchewan and beyond.

Rapid Fire Local Questions:
What is your favourite local restaurant?
What is your favourite street in your city and why?
Groat Road… it feels like it’s part of a race track, and it connects with River Valley Road, making it a good central stretch with no traffic lights for about 5km
What is your favourite park in your city and why?
Victoria Park, near the river. Sometimes it feels like you’ve left the city when you’re just outside downtown.
What is your favourite music venue in your city?
The Starlite Room
What is your favourite music store in your city?
