"School's Out But The Bands Still Playing"

For the members of Edmonton-based funk-disco four-piece Scantily Clad & the Well Dressed Men, meeting each other in the academic setting of Grant MacEwan's music program couldn't have worked out better. Having arrived at the post-secondary institution with a clear idea of what it was they wanted to do, the members were willing and able to jump headlong into the process of creating the band.

"Just like any eager first-year musicians at Grant MacEwan we were anxious to start writing," explains guitarist Brandon Baker. "We started having weekly rehearsals which turned into daily rehearsals which turned into any moment we could possibly sneak in some rehearsal we'd be jamming."

Access to rehearsal space and like-minded musicians wasn't the only advantage to MacEwan for the band, however; the environment was a boon in other ways as well.

"Your knowledge is always expanding and teachers are there to answer any question you could ever possibly imagine about music," Baker says of the experience. "It's also good because you're learning stuff that you can apply to what you're doing—you learn something in class and then half an hour later you apply it in a jam. That's probably the biggest advantage."

Ultimately, however, the band wasn't simply started out of circumstance, nor as a result of close proximity. For Baker, Scantily Clad & the Well Dressed Men is the music he's been searching for and not finding.

"We're trying to bring back that disco feel from the '70s where everybody is out at the club dancing and having a good time," he says of the band's sound. "I don't wanna knock the music we're hearing in clubs today, but I think it could be in a different direction and that's what we're trying to provide. I feel like there's a need for this type of music out there for people who want to go out and dance and have a good time like myself—I'm just not hearing the kind of music that I want to be dancing to."

Scantily Clad & The Well Dressed Men are a progressive funk/rock quartet based out of Edmonton Alberta. All members of the band attended Grant MacEwan University majoring in music performance. SC&TWDM was formed in November 2008 after the band members met and studied together at University. The band is made up of four members, Jalissa Endicott on lead vocals, Brandon Baker on guitar and backing vocals, Paul Bergeron on bass and Adam Dearden on drums. These musicians sleep, eat and breathe music. Scantily Clad’s goal is to provide music lovers with a new kind of music that will give them a great music experience that they will never forget. With an appealing visual appearance and sonic variety SC&TWDM will make the audience get up to dance and keep them coming back for more. Having already shared the stage with acts such as Five Alarm Funk (Vancouver) and Sweet Thing (Toronto), SC&TWDM has proven to be one of Edmonton’s premiere live acts. Each member has their own unique style, and when these styles are combined SC&TWDM will terrorize your neighborhood with their fast paced, odd-timed, loud, and exciting funkiness that you just have to see to believe.
