The Argues Family Rock Band

The-Argues-Car-ShotAn indie roots-rock family band, The Argues officially formed in Toronto in 2010 and are now based out of Springwater, Ontario – the location of their studio and the place they park their touring van and trailer!  Fronting the band is Sisters Argue, Sabrina Argue 16 and Lauren Argue 18, who have been wowing audience with their talent on vocals, multiple instruments and songwriting! They are serious musicians and have lead the band at countless live shows over the past five years. With natural references to TV’s “The Partridge Family“, The Argues sound more like Tom Petty and The Lumineers. The band performs rock, blues, country and folk covers but particularly enjoys performing their own catchy originals! The Argues have worked with producer/ engineer Michael Jack (Phase 1, Radio Room); Jeff Healey Band’s Joe Rockman, Texassippi Bluesman Danny Brooks; engineer Nick Blagona and celebrity photographer, Marko Shark …. The band has performed many times on Rogers TV Toronto including a feature on the 2016 “The Best Of” Toronto Sessions finale and has been featured in the Toronto Star and on the cover of Toronto Today magazine. Their demo CD, recorded at Canada’s legendary Metalworks studio in 2010, has been played on college radio across Canada. Band members Sabrina, Lauren, Chantale and Michael have charmed radio audiences with on-air antics, interviews and promotions including CKOC, CFRE, The Hawk, Moose FM and Q107 Toronto’s Rock! The Argues have shared the stage with amazing Canadian musicians including The David Love Band, Irene Torres and the Sugar Devils, JW Jones, and Jack DeKeyzer and have warmed the stage for Hotel California, April Wine and Finger Eleven.A “We’ve played all over Ontario for the last five or six years and are now getting to show Barrie what we’ve got.” She is the mother, manager, drummer and one of the songwriters of the indie roots-rock family band. Her husband, Michael – an “accounting nerd by day – rocker by night” and their two children, Sabrina Argue 15 and Lauren Argue 18 will be playing a mix of covers – blues, rock and roll, contemporary – as well as original songs, catchy pop/rock tunes at the BWF.
