Western Jaguar with special guests

Aug 9

Hailing from Maple Ridge, British Columbia, Western Jaguar is an alternative indie rock group who has established themselves as a creative, dynamic and skilled musical force. Humbly originating as the solo project of songwriter Jeffrey Trainor, Western Jaguar has evolved into a stirring union of reverb drenched guitars, pulsating bass and bruising percussion. These elements are the cornerstones of Western Jaguar’s unmatched sound and provide the foundation for the group’s haunting and memorable melodies. Western Jaguar has drawn comparison to groups such as Catfish and the Bottlemen, Death Cab For Cutie and Cage The Elephant while simultaneously evoking connection to genres such as dream pop, alt rock and post rock.
