Biography

The Afterbeat are a ska influenced punk-pop band from Winnipeg, Canada. They made their full-length recording debut in 2005 and have played a long streak of live shows in support. Citing influences such as the Clash, The Specials, Elvis Costello and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, the band is comprised of Mike Reis (lead vocals, guitar), Devon Mymko(bass guitar, vocals), Chris Ferguson (drums), Denis Gaudry (trombone, keys, vocals) and Scott Bewer (Saxophone, vocals, percussion). Their debut album, Personals, was released in 2005 on Bacteria Buffet Records. Touring relentlessly through North America has allowed The Afterbeat to share the stage with many great bands such as Bedouin Soundclash, The Toasters, The Planet Smashers, Alexisonfire, The Creepshow, Saint Alvia, Bad Brains, The Skatalites, Beat Union and Big D and The Kids Table. The exposure also recently gave the band a chance to star in and provide the music for a national Budweiser beer commercial which premiered during the 2010 Superbowl. They have recently recorded a new EP in Vancouver, Canada which was produced by Hedley bassist Tommy Macdonald (The Latency, Aberdeen) and engineered by Dean Maher (Daniel Wesley, Mariana’s Trench, AC DC, Bryan Adams). They hope this recording will help listeners everywhere feel the blood, sweat and energy they give to their music. You have to see these guys live! From the strum of the first chord to the last cymbal crashing, The Afterbeat hits you with a non-stop Balls To The Wall attitude that leaves you sweaty and wanting more!
