Three boys, who share a fiery passion for music, got together in the fall of 2011 after bumping into each other a few times along the course of their lives. Simon Stockner provides the heartbeat of the power trio, Stephen deWit slaps the bass and Elijah Larsen plays the guitar and sings his heart out. These three lads make up “The Racket”, they consider themselves a Rock-Folk, blues, Experimental group that loves to play with sounds, techniques, and all the while, love straight-up rocking. They were awarded the title of "BC's best teen band" by Youthink Magazine in 2013.
Known for powerful, energetic performances as well as intimate (but still rockin') acoustic shows, both full of original material. Previous gigs include playing late-night festival sets at Kispiox Valley Music Festival & Midsummer music Festival, also BC day 2013 in Victoria. They have shared bills with bands such as Maria in the Shower, Rachelle van Zanten, Harpoonist & the Axe Murderer, Delhi 2 Dublin, Shred Kelly, Adrian Glynn and Trooper.
The guys have been around on the northwest scene since 2011!
