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!

Summer video "Believe In You" is out

Today we’re releasing our "Believe In You" video. Stephen Love, a film student who we know and love, hung out with us this summer and filmed many of our fun adventures, in Chinatown, at the Peace Bridge, at the Stampede Hangover Picnic, in the Bow River, and on 17th Avenue in the rain. He edited into a great compilation of us having fun playing outdoors in Calgary.

Thank you to everyone who made our summer so great. All the fans, the passersby, the people who booked us for festivals, the Lemon Bucket Orkestra and ContainR, friends and family, supportive businesses and communities, etc. etc.

This is your city, this is our love song for you and Calgary. Enjoy!

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.
