Small Town Artillery is a cataclysmic tour de force on stage, with anthemic songs and unforgettable riffs. No strangers to the live arena, founding members Tom & Derek van Deursen grew up in the picturesque town of Kaslo BC. They've spent the last 10 years as professional musicians in a number of bands - Tom plays guitar in Vancouver's internationally-acclaimed quintet The Boom Booms, Derek has drummed for Trespassers Will, Jackie Treehorn, and Mud Funk. STA is and always has been their most treasured project, and they recently won Molson Canadian's Big Bang competition, winning out over 40 other bands. The prize money allowed them to record their first proper album after all these years, set to be released this summer. The band is rounded out by the brilliant Carson Webber on Bass, as well as a full brass section. Always need the brass.
