Nautical Disaster is the most energetic and enigmatic Tragically Hip tribute band you'll ever see! We take pride in bringing the authentic sound of this legendary band to our stage performances. Our frontman does the most spot-on imitation of Gord Downie's vocals and stage mannerisms, making every show a unique and unforgettable experience. With us, you can relive the greatest moments of the Tragically Hip, or discover and explore their music for the first time.

As members of Nautical Disaster, we have been playing together for 5 years and our passion for the music has only grown stronger. Our fan base has expanded and we have been adding new songs to our set list to keep things fresh and exciting. We love playing deep cuts and big hits from The Tragically Hip, and making each performance special for our audience. We are proud of what we have accomplished so far and can't wait to see what the future holds for our band.

About the band...

Nautical Disaster was formed in 2018 by frontman Ryan LeBlanc, after hearing enough people at karaoke nights tell him to start his own Tragically Hip tribute act. With vocals set, finding the musicians wasn't tough. Rodney VanSpengen (Drums) and Alan Davies (Guitar) have been with the project since the beginning, with Harry Somers (Bass/Vocals) joining about 8 months in, our newest member is Stéphane Côté (Guitar/Vocals). We've survived the Covid Lockdown, and our lead singer getting married! Played shows on beaches, docks, boathouses, backyards & festivals. A tight-knit group of guys who love what we do, professional and easy to work with.

Based in Victoria, BC - Willing to travel between Saskadelphia and the 100th meridian for paying gigs.
