A unique brand of “avant-surf” ranging from Nintendo-Western to Disco-Drip and everywhere in between.


Staycation are a collection of friends that initially got together to play a summer dance party on Toronto Island but had so much fun they became a real band. Over the last 4 years they have slowly developed their “Avant-surf” sound which keeps multi-generational audiences ears’ on their toes. Some past performance highlights include a Cameron House residency, an Annual Winter Variety Show (where they’ve taken their namesake) and their Annual Toronto Island Cafe show. They’ve had the pleasure of performing with featured guest musicians such as Christine Bougie (Bahamas), Karen Ng (Andy Shauf, Broken Social Scene) and Kevin Breit (Nora Jones, Sisters Euclid) and will be releasing their first full-length record in June 2018.
