The Dice Cubes
A little about us...
The Dice Cubes hail from Edmonton, AB. We play original, 50’s inspired rock and roll with a modern twist. Our influences range from Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Gene Vincent, to the Stray Cats, Chris Isaak and Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys. We are steadily creating a buzz in Alberta as energetic and highly accomplished performers, and have been lucky to have shared the stage with the likes of The Reverend Horton Heat, Petunia and the Vipers, Peter & the Wolves, Mad Bombers Society, Kayla & Matt Hotte, Sam Spades and The Confusionaires to name a few.
We recorded our independently produced sophomore album, “Got Lucky,” live off the floor with Edmonton’s venerable Gavin Dunn (The Hearts, Super 92’s). The album was then taken to another level and mastered by Doug Organ at Edmontone Studio. The album features a range of 50’s flavoured rock and roll. From the hard-edged opening track, “Calling All Cars,” to the bouncy, “Hula Girl,”; the jungle rhythms of “Apeman;” the country-tinged “Postcards" and "Get on Home,” or the straight-ahead rockabilly sounds of “Rumble Strip” and “Long and Lanky,” this album is a culmination of the last 2 years of polishing our sound and has something for everyone.
Alberta's own CKUA radio gave us a nod by helping us break the top 10 chart for the week of July 8, 2018, for which we are eternally grateful. On top of that we are currently re-mixing and re-mastering our 1st record , "Too Square to Roll", and have a couple of holiday treats on the horizon for discerning fans. With some festival offerings coming over the summer too, the next year is shaping up to be a busy one.
We are: lead singer-songwriter James Harapiak, guitarist Dawson Walker, and drummer Tim Resaul (formerly of The Hearts, Chicken Snails Roadshow). Andrew Cook (Whitemud Drive) just joined the ranks to cover the upright bass duties as original bassist Sean Gristwood is off working on his solo career. Andrew brings his love of Bluegrass and Jazz to the mix and has really rounded out our sound.
We really love playing this music and we hope we can bring our high-intensity rhythm and swinging melody to a town near you soon. Try to catch us if you can. Or better yet book us and see what all the hype is about.
