Rockin 4 Dollars$ Wednesday

We’re hitting Rockin 4 Dollars Wednesday with new tunes. It’s Fleetwood Mac night! If you have never been, this week is your chance. It’s a great opportunity to hear up-and-coming bands in Calgary, or established bands having fun and trying new material.

We have "Hooked On A Feeling", our secret Fleetwood Mac horn extravaganza, and then either "Born This Way" or our new original "Stroke Therapy" — depending on your votes. So send us a note and we’ll see you Wednesday at Broken City!

Saturday’s show is at the Rosedale Hall from 7:00PM to 10:00PM. Tickets from kathymacd@gmail.com. The $30 price includes your meal (at 7:30), one drink, and the music. It’s a silent auction fundraiser for the Rosedale Tennis Club, and you will be hard pressed to find a better bunch of guys than the people in the Rosedale Tennis Club.

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.
Pasted Graphic

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!

February ska gig at Dickens

Please share the word about the Feb 22nd show at Dickens Pub. Dope Soda is coming to town, they formed an Island based ska-reggae-hip-hop-jazz band by stealing musicians from some top Vancouver Island bands. “Led by a three piece horn section” and “ jumps back and forth between reggae jams, punk rock assaults, happy ska romps, and hiphop throwdowns”. Surely an event not to be missed!

We’re also playing, of course, along with Hats and Black Ties, and Class Action. These two bands are the mainstay of ska in Calgary. It’s worth coming out just for them!

If you’re on Facebook please “join” the event here https://www.facebook.com/events/699724430058373/ and tweet/share/pin etc, we want to get the crowds out!
