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.

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!
