About Us

Vagabonds are a cover band whose members all originally hail from Ireland. We met in Vancouver in 2010 and discovered a common love for all things music, with a wealth of experience and at least ten different instruments between us. Since then, we have become a regular fixture on the Greater Vancouver Area gig scene, playing a wide range of venues from downtown Vancouver to Whistler and the North Shore.

Our musical style ranges from classic rock to modern folk.

And includes songs by artists such as The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Smashing Pumpkins, Prince and The Arcade Fire.

Not forgetting our roots, we are always ready with a wide selection of traditional Irish favorites but regardless of the artist or the song, we simply love to perform and give all of our energy on every occasion.

Since our first live performance in 2010, we have built up a steady following and are emerging as one the top covers bands on the Vancouver live music scene today.
