Based in Kitchner-Waterloo, the Royal Streets are a six person folk rock group. They released their debut album Kings & Queens in March 2014 and followed that up with a three-song EP called Story Weekend in November 2014. The band is composed of Algernon Friolet (vocals/guitar), Michael Demsey (Ggitar), Jillian Dowding (vocals), Eric Stirtzinger (guitar), Samuel Keating (drums) and Julia Bannard (keys).
The Lumineers, Sam Roberts Band, Arkells and Hey Rosetta are some of the influences that the septet admits to, and on Thursday Feb. 4 they’ll be in town to play a show at the University of Regina campus bar the Owl.
