This band is all about their live shows, and their shows are all about the moment - you'll never hear the same set twice. These musical oddities combine their instrumental prowess and respective influences to create an original sound that presses the boundaries of an ecclectic variety of genres. The Last Names draw from a broad repertoire of original songs and covers, but also focus on ephemeral improvised creations that delve into a different universe altogether. Get in on this grassroots band and catch an unforgettable event every time, and stay tuned upcoming tour dates.

The Last Names is an open process. Sam and Will met in Toronto in 2005. They jammed beautiful music in Will's basement that never made it out the front door. They laid the foundations for songs to come, but didn't even know it at the time. During Sam's first year at McMaster he met Marc randomly at a party across the street from his house. They grooved on songs that were heard by very few and created some riffs that would later grow into some of their more complex compositions. Will, Sam and Marc first played together in 2005 at 87 Newton Ave... they would eventually become The Last Names.
