For Tonight is your new source for a type of music that implores listers to explore different perspectives. The perfect mix of melodies and lyrics that have meaning and songs that are just plain fun to listen to. The meaning behind the bands name should mean something a little different to every listener, but the term for tonight means something very specific to the band. Music is an escape for many people, but at the same time is also a means to be united with everyone around you. Most importantly, music enables you to just be everything you truly are. It tares down the face that you put on everyday dealing with the world. This is what FOR TONIGHT means to the band. Just for tonight forget the worries, stresses and negativity of everyday life. Just for tonight let yourself be exactly that. Yourself.
For Tonight started on the Northside of Edmonton in the summer of 2016. Since the beginning they have become very integrated into the music scene in Edmonton. Shortly after releasing their first self produced EP they were named YEG Music’s Band of the Month. They started getting a reputation for putting on fun, upbeat shows that were tailored specifically for each venue. They a have a perfect mix of original music and cover songs that they put their twist on. Since their start in 2016 the band has played all over western Canada including; Calgary, Jasper, Vancouver, Kamloops, Revelstoke, Fernie, Lethbridge, Banff, and many more.
The band has a wide range of sounds and genres but can be categorized into a couple; Alternative Indie Southern Rock. Each band member brings something very different to the band. Brock grew up on pop punk and sports a Blink tattoo which definitely speaks to the bands indie pop sound. In a couple songs you can pick out a slight shift in genre, there is a good chance what you are hearing is Sams blues and southern rock roots. Colby fills the songs with his wide knowledge of creating EDM songs on his keyboard. If you come close enough to the stage you can feel Cory’s metal roots pounding out of bass amp, and last but not least there’s Jesse. He probably has the hardest job, trying to bridge the genres with percussion. Going from a swing groove, to a 3/4, to a straight up 4/4 pop punk groove. If your anywhere within throwing distance you can bet you’ll hear him belting out lyrics.
