Leisure Club is a home for the conjuring of pop songs focused on groove, catchy guitar melodies, and vocal hooks. Although the Vancouver five piece was forged in 2016 by their mutual interest in living the most relaxed life possible, their live performances inspire a rhythm in the crowd akin to spring break. “Leisure Club compact a whirlwind summer of love, lust and heartache into 3.5 minutes” (PR Press) and “you can’t help but want to mix a pina colada for your friends wearing a one-piece by a pool” (Betty & Kora). This has led to them sharing the stage with the likes of Milky Chance Blossoms, Lawrence, Cub Sport and performance at Khatsalano Festival, Fringe Fest, Canada Day Celebrations, YVR Food Fest, Ponderosa Festival amongst many others.
Saddling up with producer Shawn Cole (You Say Party, Yukon Blonde, Bend Sinister) the group headed to The Noise Floor on Gabriola to record their debut self titled LP (available on vinyl and CD) with Jordan Koop manning the board. Released in the fall of 2017, Leisure Club looks forward to sharing it’s nostalgic charm and summer breeze across the world.
Leisure Club is: Daniel Ruiz (drums), Jamie Smail (vocals), Rob Cameron (bass), Sean Bayntun (keys), and Graham Madden (guitar)
