Staggers and Jaggs, a band that hails from Vancouver, is bringing its nostalgic sound to Nanaimo.

The band performs at the Vault Café Friday (May 19) at 9 p.m. with special guests Roadside Rattle. Admission is $10.

The band released the EP, In The Kitchen, early in 2016 and toured B.C. and Alberta to promote the project. The group is on the road again to promote its latest full-length album that is slated to be released this month.

Staggers and Jaggs band members include Conrad Shynkar, on guitar and vocals; Sabrina Robson, vocals and harmonica; Blake MacKay, keyboard; Anni M. Fables on viola; Shannon Marie on bass and Kenan Sungar on drums.

Roadside Rattle hails from Courtenay. The band release the album South Bound in January 2016 and followed it up with Roadside Rattle Gang Live Readfest in October 2016.
