Hamilton, ON
Punk
Rat Parade is made up of three passionate Hamiltonian rock-and-rollers: Mitch Theriault, Ryan Theriault and Luke Grohl. The bands lasting friendship is evident in their energetic and feedback-laden live performances that will leave your ears ringing and wanting more.

On stage you will witness lead vocalist Mitch hollering his heart out while pounding on his vintage bass guitar; his brother, Ryan, shredding fuzzy riffs through a huge Marshall stack; while drummer, Luke, whales on his drums like a maniac.

Rat Parade emerged from Hamilton’s vibrant music scene in 2017. All members, born in the 90’s, allow for a new generational take on the rock scene. Acts such as Nirvana, Green Day and Weezer influence their style, along with childhood memories of Led Zeppelin and The Who plaything on their parents radios. These musicians led the boys to play a unique blend of music that combines familiar elements of grunge, punk, and classic rock. However, Rat Parade doesn’t feel the need to be pigeon-holed to one genre of rock music. They play exactly what they want without compromises.

The band’s city has been quick to support their musical endeavours. In 2018, Rat Parade was chosen by Hamilton’s Music Advisory team to highlight the local music scene during their Music Mondays series. Later that year, they performed on CHCH Morning Live, Hamilton’s local news station.

With plans to tour across Canada in 2019, Rat Parade is showing no signs of slowing down.
