If you had the chance to get out to this year’s street performers festival you would have seen Edmonton’s own beloved mini-instrument band the “Be Arthurs.” They play a set full of energy which includes famous covers such as; Toxic by Britney Spears, Hey Ya by Outkast, Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, Keep the Car Running by Arcade Fire & the list goes on & on so be prepared to be please..  I’m pretty sure my night was made when I discovered Bob’s full out mini-Ludwig kit. It described to us that it was fully legit & able to take a true pounding.  I had a good 5-minute laugh before I proceeded to shoot some photos.

If you liked what you just viewed,
be sure to check out the band’s website, check out their upcoming show dates & pick up a copy of their disc which is best served spinning in your favourite compact-disc player.

After much success at the Fringe, The Be Arthurs opened for a band… that was opening for a band… that was opening for a band at a local hot spot in hometown Edmonton. They’ve played gigs at opening night galas, fundraisers,variety shows and several live music venues around Edmonton…including The Winspear Centre.
