Biography

There are at least three artists with this name:
1. A Canadian rock band
2. A British rock band
3. An American rock band

Sandbox was a Canadian alternative rock music group originally from Pictou County, Nova Scotia. The band consisted of Paul Murray on vocals, Mike Smith and Jason Archibald on guitar, Scott MacFarlane on bass and Troy Shanks on drums.

Their most well known single is “Curious”, from their debut album Bionic.

Following the dissolution of the band, guitarist Mike Smith went on to play Bubbles, a popular character in the Canadian cult hit television series Trailer Park Boys.[1]

They were nominated for Best New Group at the Juno Awards of 1996. They also won three East Coast Music Awards.





SandboxUK is Lennie (Vocals/Guitar); Paul (Guitar); Andy (Drums) & Will (Bass/Keyboards), a four piece indie band from Manchester. They are four friends that met whilst at school/college and bonded through a shared love of 90s indie, when the world was a nicer place and everybody was happy!

They have been described as “Blondie fronting The Smiths” by Designer Magazine, Sandbox have rapidly gained a reputation as one of the best live acts in Manchester since releasing their third EP, ‘Back to the City’, thanks to a number of high profile support slots including opening up for Howling Bells, Mobile, The Checks and Tokyo Police Club.

As 2008 draws to a close, Sandbox are rounding the year off in a truly hectic style. After recently playing at The Aftershow’s 1st Birthday party, they have gigs booked all over Manchester, which culminates in their annual Christmas Ball in December.
