RAH RAH have previously been crowned “Best New Canadian Band” and “Best New Alternative Band” by iTunes Canada in 2009 and they have also released a very successful ‘The Poet’s Dead’ album in 2012, which has won many accolades such as the long-list for the 2013 Polaris Prize, and they took home Independent Album of the Year honours at the 2013 WCMAs, to name but a few.
The band says this about their live performances:
The members of Rah Rah also share a collective mentality, taking turns taking the lead, both in songwriting and while on stage. The melodic male/female vocals and shared instrumentation traded off seamlessly, plus a true level of fun throughout ensures that a Rah Rah show will not disappoint. “The members did a lot of instrument switching and almost everyone in the band sang lead on at least one song,” writes Andrew Sacher of Brooklyn Vegan in a recent live review. “And just in case their catchy songs weren’t enough, their stage antics are sure to be remembered, which included throwing “R” “A” & “H” balloon letters into the audience, shooting out confetti, and breaking open a piñata at the end of their last song.”
