Event Details

SAMRU is holding its first-ever Last Band Standing competition, where we shine a spotlight on some of the amazing talent MRU students have to offer!

The bands will perform at the Hub over three nights in March. Then you, the audience, will decide by votes which band takes home the grand prize and plays the opening set at Last Class Bash!


Mitch Belot Band

Genre: Swampy Blues Rock

Bio: Mitch Belot entertains with his swampy story telling style and modern rock flare. He hooks audiences with his powerful, smoky voice, and gets them on their feet by incorporating fast tempos and heavy grooves. While he is first and foremost a humble student of the blues, Mitch adds a taste of rock to the naturally ear pleasing sound that permeates his repertoire.

Same Monkey

Genre: Spaced out metal pebbles

Bio: Jordan, Manko and Darl had started a band, and by serendipity, I, Drake Hennig, stumbled along them while playing tennis. That was in 2010. Jordan then met Shayne and then Enoc along his travels. We have played some epic shows all around Calgary, but of course, not without botching a song or two. We almost exclusively play original music that tends to fallow a story line played out by our mascot, Hito the ape. We have been a little disorganized over this last summer, but we are back to a decent practice schedule and we think we might be able to add some emotion to this band battling commotion. It has been almost a year since we have performed at a venue, so hopefully we have aged like wine.
