Rotary Park is a Calgary based band playing a special brand of harmony driven, alternative bluegrass. The combination of ambient folk music, powerful vocal harmonies and banjo ripping bluegrass is sure to have to listener immersed and captivated in a sonic atmosphere of Progressive Canadiana.

It was in 2011 when Rotary Park was formed by long-time friends and fellow buskers. The band began playing live around the city of Calgary, while working on material for a full length album. October 2012 marked the start of recording as the boys headed into studio to cut their debut album. After over a year of production they released the self-titled record on March 28 2014. With a fresh album and big ambitions Rotary Park hit the road on their first tour across Canada.

After a very successful tour the quintet got right back into the grind writing and recording another album in less than a year. On July 10 2015 Rotary Park’s second album ‘Be’ was released. The band followed it up with another coast to coast tour including notable stops at South Country Fair and the Market Collective Locals Stage at the Calgary Folk Music Festival.

In early April 2016 Rotary Park performed at JUNOfest to a sold out crowd at the Palomino Smokehouse. After a summer of playing festivals, parties, and music venues across Alberta, long time Rotary Park friend and fellow musician Nicki McRae joined the band; bringing a brand new dimension and depth to the sound. The band immediately capitalized on the momentum and embarked on its third tour across Canada in October.

The future has never looked brighter for this group of musicians, entrepreneurs, but first and foremost; friends. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for what Rotary Park has in store.
