Busking and Rocking4Dollars open mic today

Calgary, today at 5:30 PM we’re going to try out our brand new busking license and The City’s brand new busking regulations.

Catch a couple of songs at the Centre Street LRT sometime shortly after 5PM, we’ll assemble and warm up there. Then, we’ll claim one of the four "Busk Stops" on Stephen Avenue, set up the amp for Margo, and entertain you with some great brass-rock songs. Ask about our new Mr Doubler to throw out the bass. And Ron has some fun drum tricks up his sleeve.

Busk Stops

Busy at 5:30PM? No problem! We’re invited to Rocking4Dollars at Broken City. $3 cover! 10 bands, each plays 3 songs. Then we get to spin the wheel for prizes! Loads of fun, and a great way to drink beer and meet people. Starts at 8PM.

August and September

September 26 and 27 is a big weekend. First we play the Drop In Centre at the ArtBeat Stage. This is a free show primarily for the clients and staff of the Drop In centre, to bring music to people who might not otherwise get out to hear live music. It should be a big enthusiastic crowd and it would be great if you could come, even if you’re lucky enough to not need the services of the Drop in Centre.

The next day we play the Rosedale Tennis Clubs "Light It Up" fundraising gala. There will be great tennis, dinner and a drink, and some outdoor and indoor music, for $30. We plan to mix it up with some traditional New Orleans in the late afternoon, and revert to our pop/rock dance in the evening.
Light_It_Up

In the meantime, next week we will play a busking show Aug 20 in Kensington, weather permitting. Hope you can come out, this will be Michael’s last show of the summer before he takes off back to Berklee School of Music in the fall. Watch twitter for last minute info.

AND AND AND AND our video will be dropping soon. It’s got a lot of great outdoor footage, really showing off our fine city and the fun we’ve had all summer. We can’t wait!

Sharing the Gazebo with the Street People

On Friday, as promised, we hit 17th Avenue to play some music. It was raining pretty hard, so all the people who had indoor places to take shelter were missing. However, there were some street people taking shelter in the Gazebo. They really seemed to like the music, and took the dancing pretty seriously!

We love playing for people who take dancing seriously! With or without a beer-in-hand. Thank you! Check out the video below.

Ski season over, busking starts Sunday

Ski season ended on Monday, which means Busking season is back. And Michael is back for our drums.

We’ll return triumphantly to Eau Claire (the circle amphitheatre by the windmill) on Sunday May 25, around 3PM. (If there’s some other event going on there, check the Peace Bridge just a few blocks West.)

Hope to see you! Bring your camera and shoot photos and video, so you can upload it for us. Bring your dogs, kids, grandparents, etc.
