Founded by Ed Durocher, Apollo Suns is a 9-piece instrumental collective from Winnipeg, Manitoba. The band fuses the influence of jazz, rock and psychedelic music, to create their own unique sounds with the dancefloor in mind. They have self-released three EPs: ‘Each Day a Different Sun’ (2017), ‘Dawn Offerings’ (2019), ‘A Relationship of Force’ (Color Red, 2021), and were awarded “Instrumental Artist of the Year” at Western Canadian Music Awards in both 2018/2020.  

In 2022, Apollo Suns returned to the studio with Juno award-winning producer Ben Kaplan (Five Alarm Funk, Mother Mother, The Rare Americans) to record their latest album, ‘Departures’. The band is signed to the Canadian label Do Right Music, home to The Souljazz Orchestra, Soul Motivators, and Luvmenauts.

Developed over many tours trying out different arrangements and grooves, their new single 'Pluto' became a fan favourite at live shows due to its heavy horns, dynamic groove, and catchy melody. “Pluto is a many-faced god who is capable of great kindness but also is temperamental. We wanted the song and artwork to convey that feeling to listeners.”

Best known for their high-octane live shows, Apollo Suns have captivated audiences at Winnipeg Jazz Festival, Big Fun Festival, Vermont Jazz Fest, and Calgary Stampede. Some of their most notable shows include support slots for The Comet is Coming, Makaya McCraven, Anomalie, The Brooks, and Five Alarm Funk. The core group includes Ed Durocher (Guitar), Tim Iskierski (Drums), Erika Einarson (Percussion), Bryn Herperger (Bass), Garrett Malenko (Trumpet), Benjamin James Hill (Trombone), Aaron Bartel (Bari Sax) and Anatol Rennie (Keyboards/Synths).

Dana Ariel Stahl is a singer/songwriter based out of Southwest Colorado. Although just one voice and one guitar, she brings an eclectic sound with her atmospheric vocals, folky guitar and mixture of genres. Dana's music appeals to a wide variety of audiences of all age groups and musical tastes. She has shared the stage and worked alongside bands such as Hello DollFace, Elder Grown, and Alpen Rising. The welcoming and lively atmosphere she delivers to each show she plays brings a similar vibe as the artist Brett Dennen whereas her paradisiac sound reminds you of the esteemed Sara Watkins. Dana is sure to bring people of all backgrounds together and provide a unified environment through her music.
