Biography

The original band members started rehearsing in the summer of 2018. Many auditions were held to find the perfect fit of compatibility and dedication to each other, and the music played. They all share a love of artists and bands like Joe Cocker, Electric Light Orchestra, The Stones, The Doobie Brothers, Brian Adams, Eric Clapton, and the Eagles to name a few. Throughout their four years together, The Distractions has always enjoyed performing their music of classic 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s rock.

Years of experience have gifted them with a captivating stage presence and an ability to sustain a high energy, exciting, and engaging performance.  If you want to hear popular rock music you simply turn on the radio, but if you want to see Classic Rock done right there is no other band but The Distractions! 

On stage, every single member is strongly focused on their musicality and delivery. This kind of chemistry from a band is a real treat. Having played over 100 shows over the last few years, our specialty is Corporate Events, Private Parties, Weddings, Night Clubs & Bars around Victoria, BC.

The band currently consists of Brian Roe (Lead Vocals), Colin Southwell (Guitar), Tony Rodrigues (Keyboards & Vocals), Larry Del Mistro (Bass) and Ron Gibson (Drums).
