THE RUNAWAY FIVE: The idea of bringing video game music to life has always been one of Brendan McElroy's (bass player/composer/arranger and founder of The Runaway Five) interests. The idea began while attending a music workshop at the world famous Banff Center with the Calgary Youth Jazz Orchestra. Collaborations with Calgary's Brendan Swanson (pianist/composer/arranger and co-founder of The Runaway Five) allowed for the creation of the video game music ensemble "The Runaway Five". The project soon moved to Toronto where the Band Leader, Brendan McElroy, currently resides,studying at the University of Toronto. By working with Toronto's Alex Goodman(guitarist/pianist/composer/arranger), Brendan was able to form Toronto's version of this group. This ensemble now currently runs out of both Calgary, Alberta and Toronto, Ontario. By performing jazz arrangements of popular video game music including pieces from Sonic The Hedgehog, Final Fantasy, Earthbound, Megaman, Zelda, Metroid, Katamari Damacy, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Super Mario Brothers/World, F Zero and many more, The Runaway Five adheres to the tastes of every video game nerd. Recently, The Runaway Five had the oportunity to play on the legendary stage of Massey Hall in Toronto, Ontario. This was for the world famous video game music tour, Video Games Live. Through this, The Runaway Five were able to meet and work with world renown game composers Jack Wall (Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow, Myst III: Exile, Myst IV: Revelation, Jade Empire), Tommy Tallarico (Earthworm Jim series (Earthworm Jim 2 on), Spot Goes To Hollywood, MDK, Maximo: Ghosts to Glory, Wild 9) and Michael Salvatori (Halo series).
