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.
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.
Our first $1000 Rockin' 4 Dollars at Broken City! Check out the lineup.
Bands, spread the word and let's pack the place.Posted by Rockin' 4 Dollar$ Calgary - Every Wednesday on Monday, March 21, 2016
Come out after work, for those few people in downtown Calgary who still have jobs. The rest of you, you have no excuse. Free music.
Thanks to Csaba Toth Abony for taking this nice picture of us on Monday:
We’re planning on Busking on June 9. After work, Peace Bridge. Put it in your calendar please! Meanwhile we’ll be mixing, rehearsing, recording.
Drummer Ron is playing in The Great American Trailer Park Musical from Cappuccino Musical Theatre running until June 6.
The Tweed Ride supports Bicycles for Humanity, who send used bikes to developing countries. If you are going to ride, you are encouraged to register in advance. Please bring extra cash for the band, it will show your support for the music, we’ll collect it and pass 100% of it on to Bicycles For Humanity.
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.
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!
We will have our first CD for sale. If you want one, bring $5.
If you want the very first one, labeled “the very first CD” in sharpie and signed by us, bring $50.
There are many things going on downtown on Canada Day. Check the Official Website for the list.
