Peace Bridge Photo Shoot

Today (Thursday 16th) at 6PM we’ll be gathering at the Peace Bridge to shoot some photos of the band, with the new instrumentation. The sousaphone will be prominent. We’ll be playing some tunes, because the photographer @gerrypdavid likes to shoot "live" scenes. Please come and be part of the background crowd, we’d love to have you!

Playlist:

1) House of the Rising Sun
2) Don’t Wait Up
3) St James Infirmary Blues

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!

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.
