0 Off the road and home for a week. Yeesh
Where to begin….
So I am off the road with The Jimmyriggers. We just finished up a 10 date, 12 day tour of southern Ontario. We had a pretty great time with tonnes of friends made, and old ones re-visited.
The venues went from amazing and inspiring ( The L Lounge in Kitchener, The Dakota Tavern in Toronto, Elmdale House in Ottawa, The MoHo in Peterborough) to strange and bizarre ( Double B Ranch in Woodstock, ON ). Even through the ‘new’ country vibe and some of the strangest clientele, we were able to keep our composure and deliver a great show. We even had fun considering the white supremacist lady we met at the super 8 motel(who found it strange that we didn’t agree with her skewed view of black people).
Of all the touring I have done: this was one of the best.
For now, I am home for a week and prepping for a week on the road with CerAmony. This time up we are heading north to perform as part of a walk to protest the proposed uranium mining in Mistissini, QC. This is something I have been looking forward to doing for awhile now. I always get excited to hit the road with these boys and perform the music of CerAmony. The support the band always receives is overwhelming and a real treat.
I will have more local shows as well and I have just up-dated my tour schedule. For all my dates, including venues, addresses, and phone numbers just click on the link at the top of my home page.
0 Debut video nearing 3000 youtube views in 2 days!!!
A great band I am in, CerAmony, has debuted our first official video for a great anthemic rock song called “Looks Like Change(To Me)” and we have gotten close to 3000 views. By the time you read this we hope to have surpassed that mark. We are all hoping to hit the 5000 mark by weeks end. Ya gotta dream right?
Here is the video for everyone to watch: Looks Like Change (To Me)
This is a great start to a very interesting time for the band. In just under a week we will be gracing the stage at Montreals Bell Centre, home of the Habs, for a great show in front of roughly 12,000 people. This will be the largest crowd I have had the pleasure of playing in front of and consequently will also be the biggest room I have ever played.
You can find out more about the show by clicking here: L’Heure Des Enfants.
We have just added my most favourite bass player, Shian Ramjohn, to the lineup and the gravity he adds to the live show is astounding!! You have to hear him (and see his amazing skill) to really know how great he is. Welcome o the team Shi!!
More news and tour videos to follow as it happens.
0 A Brand New Year
So here we are smack dab in the start of a new year and I find myself asking; “Where did last year go?? I was just getting into the swing of things!!”.
Well; alot has happened and I cant help but be proud of my accomplishments. I ended a great run of tour managing my old ladies band Ladies Of The Canyon, I joined a great pop rock band Exit 451, a killer award winning rock band by the name of Ceramony, finished the demo for my classic country band The Marshalls, and become the semi-permanent drummer for The Jimmyriggers.
I hope that I will be able to offer more consistent blogging as well, offering more up to date news, event invites, pictures, and plenty of tidbits of information for all of you out there. Feel free as well to let me know when you are interested in anything new, or if you just havent heard from me in awhile.
As well; tell all your friends and feel free to leave as many comments as you would like. I will do my best to get back to you as often as I can.
