Tobias & the Tall Cans have established themselves as a top-notch East Coast rock band. The group is based in Saint John, New Brunswick, and have earned a name for themselves as a high-energy live act – mixing hook-laden original songs with a setlist of dozens of crowd-favourite cover tunes.
The four-piece band is led by singer-songwriter Drake Tobias, a member of the musical Tobias family. As a solo player honing his craft, he's opened for such artists as James Mullinger, Ethan Ash and Brent Mason. His songs evoke the culture of his home region with a clear blues and rock influence.
He is joined by Austin Gautreau on lead guitar, Nick Brown on bass and Jackson Doughart on drums – all pitching in with tight and tasteful harmony vocals to back-up Tobias's rich, soulful lead voice.
The Tall Cans' live show is unmatched in its energy. They perform long, uptempo sets that keep the audience engaged and the party going all night.
