The Falcons

Canada's Falcons play original instrumental rock and roll inspired by The Shadows and The Ventures. Formed in 1992 by Vancouver guitarist Mike Beddoes, The Falcons have recorded five albums, toured in Europe and Canada’s Yukon, showcased in Japan, and helped revive the instro rock genre worldwide.

“Shadow Land”, from The Falcons self-titled 1992 EP cassette, charted coast to coast in the top ten on Canadian campus radio, appeared on Rounder's Beyond the Beach instrumental rock compilation, and in several Canadian film and television productions.

Debut album Queen of Diamonds, with guest Ventures’ guitarist Nokie Edwards, was named Album of the Year (1998) by UK instro magazine Pipeline Instrumental Review. The Falcons have appeared twice at the Pipeline Instrumental Rock Convention in London England, in 1995 and 2000.

Since 2004, The Falcons have been mainly a recording band, but perform live occasionally, most recently at the Summer of Love festival in Vancouver, 2008.

The Falcons are celebrating their 20th anniversary with three new albums: Atomic Guitar, the EP Collection, and Rebel Jukebox 10th anniversary edition.
