Walk Off The Earth comes to the Chumash Casino Resort’s Samala Showroom at 8 p.m. on Friday, March 2.

The unconventional, five-piece musical phenomenon originated in Burlington, Ontario, in 2006 and is made up of Sarah Blackwood, Gianni Luminati, Ryan Marshall, Joel Cassady and Mike “Beard Guy” Taylor. Together they’ve come to be known for their original and sincere songwriting, organic cover interpretations and beautifully filmed videos.

In 2012, the band released a live video cover of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know.” Their interpretation featured all five band members playing on one single guitar, a whimsical touch that garnered more than 35 million views in just under two weeks.

Over the past five years, the band has embarked on three additional world tours, was featured on the 2014 Grammy Awards for their video rendition of Lorde’s “Royals,” and won a 2016 Juno Award for Group of the Year. In August 2017, their single “Fire In My Soul” was certified gold.

Don’t miss an opportunity to see this unique performance at the Chumash Casino.

Located on Highway 246 in Santa Ynez, California, the Chumash Casino Resort is an age 21-and-older venue. Tickets for all events are available at www.chumashcasino.com.
