From 1997-2014 the Canada pavilion at Epcot was home to the band, Off Kilter. Off Kilter is described as a Celtic rock band complete with a bagpiper. They gained a strong following from Disney goers releasing six albums from 1998-2016. Since leaving Disney they have played at a multitude of events and places including in October in Celebration.
However, Off Kilter released a statement on December 11th sadly announcing they’d be moving in different directions.
Here’s the statement released on their Facebook page:
“Hello to our Off Kilter friends and family. For almost 25 years we have been performing in many amazing places. We started off when Disney took a chance on a rock band with a bagpiper. We had a great run there for 18 years. In the years since we left Epcot, there have been some amazing festivals that we have played at making so many friends along the way. Over the last year and half it has been tough on musicians and bands. Fortunately, that is slowly returning. This time has given us all time to reflect and we have decided to move on in other directions.
We want to thank you all for the love and support over the years and please know that we truly appreciate all of you. Thank you all and keep safe.”
I know that there are many devoted fans of this former Epcot staple, however, it seems that COVID may have played a role in the ending of the band.
