Singles and EPs
The sound of rock, reggae and Latin colliding with 90’s ska-punk, minivandal is horn-infused, high-octane party-machine! Although their name (and ride of choice) might not be considered “sporty” by some, it comes equipped with heated guitar solos (Justin Schumacher), two horns (Jessica Lipoth, Ben Fortosky), and an “extreme” keys/bass/drums system (Cameron Baribeau, Emmett Fortosky, Nathan Abramyk). Trumpet player Ben Fortosky drives the band, adding lead vocals and extra guitar to the front-end. Whether they’re on the road or tearing up a stage in their home town of Saskatoon, minivandal’s mandate is to get any crowd moving. Their music is, after all, designed to be able to shift a party into overdrive in record time. The Saskatoon-based band has had the privilege of sharing the stage with notable Canadian acts The Steadies, The Dirty Catfish Brass Band, and K-Man & The 45’s, as well as international touring acts such as Moon Hooch. In 2018, minivandal released their full-length debut album,“Turn Left Here”. Independently recorded and self-produced over the course of a year, the album's eleven original tracks provide a thrilling ride for the listener from start to finish. Take the record for a spin to find out just how much punch a six-piece party-band can pack!
