“If there's one thing you can expect at a Drifter's Faith live show, it's pure energy. These guys blend classic rock, heavy metal, and funk, in a way that's bound to get your body moving... as there beautiful and dedicated following can attest to. This band gets the party going and the drinks flowing, with the melodic but aggressive vocals of Andrew Phillips, the screaming guitar stylings of Louis Perron, and the undeniable groove combination of Ben Mayo-Goldberg on the drums, and Nico Boog on Bass. If you're still standing by the end of the show, then you're sure to be singing their songs on your way out.”
“I saw Drifter’s Faith for the first time in concert 2 years ago, and you could tell from the first set that these guys are serious musicians. Each one of the members studied music at college or university, so the diversity in their songs and styles is very apparent. The sound is a mix of Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Who.
No concert is exactly the same, – with the exception of Nico ending up shirtless by the 4th or 5th song – the solos and the set list are different from show to show, and they are not afraid to debut a new song even if it’s only 2 hours old. Some things are the same however: Great sound quality, packed venues, dedicated fans, and cheap beer. One of the things I like the most from these guys is their “mashups”. The last one I heard was the lyrics from The Doors’ “Riders on the storm” overtop “Seven Nation Army” by the White Stripes; and it was some real panty-dropping material.”
“When I first encountered Drifter's Faith back in late August of 2010, I saw a group of guys with a lot of raw potential. The energy was there, just held back. You could tell that they loved what they were doing. It was in the summer of 2012 that I saw the big difference from that first time in August 2010, to the first and last show of summer 2012. They fed the audience energy, and vice versa.
It took two years for me to notice the change and growth in their music and chemistry on stage. Of course they still have a long way to go, but they've already come along way now. They have great potential as a group and as individuals.”
