Electric Audrey 2 is a dynamic 6-piece mash up of rockabilly, country/western, punk, gypsy and alternative sounds from Edmonton, Alberta. They're a dynamic, high energy group that combines several genres to.. Great, now this overview sounds like a generic band bio. "High energy" group? Seriously, every rock band in the universe will say that about themselves. Combining several genres? Dynamic"? Wow, they must be soooooo unique and special. Anyway, just go listen to our tunes and judge for yourself and like the crap out of us on Facebook.
Our first music video "Chicken Lover" sums up the band temperament nicely, and even won a comedy award at the Edmonton Short Film Festival in 2017! Check the show listings for upcoming and notable past performances at venues and festivals around the Province, like North Country Fair, Beaumont Blues & Roots Fest, WayneStock, Athabasca River Rats and more!
WHO THE HELL ARE THESE GUYS?
Oakland is the nachos supreme, glorious leader of Electric Audrey 2. He plays guitar, "sings" lead vocals and sports one of the finest hairdos in the Edmonton music scene. We put "sings" in double quotes 'cause it's more like yelling. He's also the most charming and well spoken member of the band - but mostly because the other guys are socially inept troglodytes. His spelling is atrocious though, so we don't let him do any Facebook updates. During his spare time, he enjoys coming up with crazy ideas, making silly faces and defeating his son in stare-eyes competitions.

Derek sure knows how to play drums, and also knows how to get in the "zone" and constantly reminds us that's where he wants to be. We get it, Derek, we're just not as stoked as you on being there. Derek almost never participates in social media - he's too cool for that. But it's kind of annoying when we're playing some event with low attendance and he won't even accept the Facebook invite. On the bright side, he'll never see this bio I made for him either, so I can say whatever I want and he'll be none the wiser. He does have a really cool vest he usually wears on stage, though.

Jarret is the new kid on the block. No, we didn't mean he played in NKOTB, even if he's dazzling enough to fit in with them. Watch as he prances and dances with the fans, like a delicate fawn on a fresh cut lawn; hopping on his hind legs in a mist of smoke, tears and sweat. Though an extraordinary fiddle player for a centaur, Jarret is a terrible hacky sack player - despite years of practice he just can't seem to get more than 3 kicks before it hits the ground. Sometimes he dreams of giving his career as a professional busker to take up tree planting or surfing just to get better at hacky sack, since he's such a determined fellow.

Stacy has been rockin' the electric guitar for many years now, and is the fast fingered fury behind "Chicken Lover", even though his wife says his fingers aren't that fast.... Heyoooo!! When he's not playing with EA2, he's probably working at his day job, whatever that is. A natural outdoors-man, rumor has it that Stacy once hypnotized a grizzly bear by doing a jazz hands routine. He also prefers that you keep it "au natural" down there, ladies, as he informs us via our song "Down Bound". We get it Stacy, you're all natural and outdoorsy. But seriously, would it kill you to shower before rehearsal?

Jason plays both trumpet and keyboard, but he's not getting paid twice as much as everyone else, so suck it up Jason. You knew what you were getting into when you joined this communist band. He's got a plethora of musical diversity, having played with bands in genres like Latin, hip-hop, electronica, Celtic punk, and other really weird shit like bluegrass. But despite playing with a Latin band for over 5 years, he still doesn't know any Spanish. In fact, he can barely speak English without mumbling incoherently. But that's fine with the rest of us, since he doesn't usually have anything useful to say.

Dan plays the contrabass for Electric Audrey 2, and quite a few other instruments! Contrabass is the proper term for that big bass thingy you see in rockabilly bands, but you probably didn't know that 'cause you're not a professional musician like Dan here. He also plays the guitar, saxophone, and a handful of other instruments extremely well! As a professional musician, he's also broke AF, so try to come to some more shows so we can pay him more.
