Small Town Artillery are from Kaslo, BC – population 1000. Their mission is creating funk-influenced, melodic and heartfelt, riff-driven rock & roll. They’ve been booking their own tours, taking over backyards, clubs and festivals for 3 years. This is a DIY band that puts together an unforgettable live concert.
Frontman Tom van Deursen cannot contain his excitement as he leaps on to the stage, ruby-red telecaster slung gregariously across his chest. Drummer & brother Derek van Deursen owns the throne behind the drums and provides the group with their foundation. Bassist Carson Webber is a consummate professional and incredible story teller – the perfect glue for the brothers. The band always tours with a full horn section. Always.
