Tonight I am playing drums for a great band that goes by the name Holyoak, fronted by the very talented Neil Holyoak. We are at Casa Del Popolo, located at 4873 St Laurent Blvd, Montreal, QC H2T 1R5.
Doors are at 8:00 and we start at about 9:30. Below is the event description and links to the music.
“Trippy philosophical ruminations on tape loop, shredded invincible noise guitar fingerstyles care of Josh Hawley, and then Holyoak brings the country western vibe”.
Hope to see you all there!!
Tonight I play with The Blue Flamingo. The brainchild of Kurt Chaboyer (The Johnny Cash machine, Kurt Bel Air), he has brought together all of his favourite elements from his years of playing throughout Montreal, and put it all together for what he calls: The Blue Flamingo.
Tonight we will be opening for Amanita Bloom for the launch of their 2nd album “Neither the Sea Nor the Land”. Click on the link below for a great review in Voir Montreal:

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.
