DANY LAJ AND THE LOOKS SELL THE CASTLE TOUR 2014
When Montreal’s Dany Laj and the Looks saw a real estate listing for a real, live castle for sale in Moncton, New Brunswick, they knew they had to seize the opportunity to see the thing for themselves – and what better occasion to plan their triumphant return to the Maritimes around? Yes, folks, Dany Laj and the Looks are happy to announce that they will be bringing their own memorable brand of ’70s/British-influenced rock’n’roll to East Coast Canada once again. Dany Laj has been tirelessly driving back and forth across Canada with his faithful band, The Looks, at his side.

UPCOMING TOUR, NEW BAND, AND OTHER NEWS!!!
I was looking at my site ad realized that I haven’t written any blog entries for quite awhile and it looks like that means I’m breaking one of the first rules of social marketing: always update your blog entries! I guess my friend Geoff, a media savvy kinda guy, would be pretty disappointed in me.
So here goes my first entry in a long time.
I have a few things to announce: I am part of a great little instrumental surf trio, going by the name The Reverb Raiders, with a couple great musicians from Montreal; Hugo Joyal(Jaguar guitar) and Olivier Pomerleau(upright and electric bass).
We have done some great shows up to this point and we have some really cool shows coming up in the next few weeks that are definitely worth checking out.
Here the poster for the upcoming show on November 17th at The Bull Pub in Montreal:

I have also begun playing with a great Toronto band called Dany Laj and The Looks. You may have heard of them. Its a solid little power pop trio that is making great waves throughout Canada. I started by playing a few fill ins at Barfly on St. Laurent, and now they need a sub to head out on an eastern tour with them from November 19-25. They asked me, and I gladly accepted.

Some other recent news as well:
I filmed a great little video with The Jimmyriggers for our song ‘Sleepwalking’ off the latest album ‘I Stand In The Weeds’. It was a great shoot and we filmed it at our favourite watering hole Grumpys bar. I will be sure to mention when it debuts.
Other than a whole lot of great shows throughout the summer and fall; I dont have a whole lot more to report. Thanks for following along with my whole free-thinking-writing, and please feel free to leave as many comments as you want. Otherwise I feel like I’m writing this thing to no-one. Heh heh.
