Pala Benefit with The Kents and The Wilderness March 31st


Queen’s Helping Haiti presents:
The Kents with The Wilderness and Pala

The Kents are a young band from Lindsay, Ontario that have had their catchy, alternative rock hooks compared to Arkells, Hollerado and The Killers

Formed in 2014, The Kents is comprised of Warren Frank (vocals), Freddy Kwon (guitar), Luke Shauf (bass) and Tanner Paré (drums).

Waking EP, produced by Derek Hoffman (The Elwins, DCF) at Fox Sounds in Toronto with mastering from Dan Weston (Shad, City And Colour), encapsulates lyrical explorations of family, loss and separation from the comfort of adolescence with a hook-hungry, pop filter that controls the chaos.

Their debut single, The Stakes, was featured on the iTunes’ New Artist Spotlight, Spotify’s Best of 2016 Viral Hits, Hockey Night in Canada, Canada’s Walk Of Fame Emerging Artist finalist and earned radio support from CBC including George Stroumboulopoulos and various other regional, national stations. They’ve also shared the stage for sold-out shows with The Trews, The Strumbellas, The Elwins and Hollerado.

*All proceeds to Queen’s Helping Haiti, supporting a grass roots Cité Soleil based organization providing medical care using funds raised here in Kingston. All money goes towards medical equipment and wages for the local workers! To learn more check out:
