The Downtown Getdown

Blues, Folk, Funk

Born and raised in New Brunswick, The Downtown Getdown channels blues, funk, soul, and rock and roll into a refreshing old school sound. Led by Mike Beaton (Vocals/guitar) and Myles MacPherson (Vocals/Guitar), The Downtown Getdown formed in Halifax, Nova Scotia while both Mike and Myles were in University. Becoming a popular cover band with the University crowd, DTG was a staple of the Halifax music community for over 6 years. During those late nights, DTG always had the dream of eventually transitioning into writing & performing original material. In 2014 the group moved to Saint John, NB and has continued to play music across the maritimes ever since. After almost a decade of playing covers, DTG felt that the time was right to start telling their own stories, inspired by life lessons and events that happened right here in Atlantic Canada.
