After the excitement around the release of their first EP Actorboy earlier this year, John Canoe are ready to hit Magneet Festival's full force and bring the mob into an uncontrollable dance.

John Canoe is a surf/garage rock trio from Rome originally called “The Sasquatch”, from the union of Jesse Germanó (guitar and vocals) and Stefano Padoan (drums and vocals). On December 2014, with Mario Bruni joining the band (bass guitar and vocals) they change name and line up becoming “John Canoe” and releasing their first single “Nervous Breakdown”. Their den is a garage in the historical Rome’s neighbourhood Testaccio, their hunting field is the stage. Not for mere chance it’s live that they get most of their satisfaction qualifying second at the selections of Arezzo Wave 2015. Furthermore they got selected for the 2015 edition of Zanne Festival in Catania, which stage was shared with giants such as Franz Ferdinandand, Sparks, Four Tet, Spiritualised and Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

On 2016 they released the debut EP “Actorboy” through Fourtwenty Records getting a lot of attention and excitement from press for their powerful psych / surf / garage combo. They’re also in the semi finals to get selected for next Sziget Festival.
