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 27 at ContainR: Delirium with Get It Funk

Ladies and Gentlemen, on August 27 we will be performing at ContainR at the Music and Market Square series. This is Outdoor Urban Friendly Music, ideally suited to Delirium. Get It Funk will be joining us. Show is 6PM or so to 8:30 PM.

John from Delirium is helping to organize the series. Many Thursdays this summer feature different music genres, and people are coming out with their family, their kids, their parents, their sweetie, their dog, and/or their dancing shoes. On August 27 come out and catch Brass and Funk.

Bring cash, it’s pay-what-you-can. (Put small bills in one easily accessible pocket, and throw a few extra $20s or $50s in a secret pocket in case you have the best time of your life. If you’re having a hard time making rent this month, just bring your smile.)

We have some new tunes that you will love!

Photo and Video from the River

Last night we waded across treacherous waters near Prince’s Island, then played along with our recording of Believe In You, which was on infinite loop on the amp. Meanwhile, Stephen shot video from the Peace Bridge. We gathered quite a crowd on the bridge and on the shore! When we couldn’t stand Believe In You anymore, we had an audience member stop the iPod, then we played Sweet Dreams and Thrift Shop from our little island stage. Stephen captured Sweet Dreams and put it on the Youtubes:




After another the treacherous water crossing, we hung out and watched the sun set:

and finished the night on The Yardhouse patio. What a great night! Thank you to the hundreds who stopped, watched, and applauded!

Next up: Aug 2nd Saturday in Inglewood, 4PM outdoor show with Open Streets Calgary.
