Festivus in Hudson

It’s been a long year but a good one for us: a feature in the Gazette, a spot on CTV News in Montreal and Kitchener, a ten night tour through Ontario that included an appearance on City TV in Toronto, and so many great gigs with friends new and old at some great venues.

Personal highlights include sharing the stage with The Key Frames and Lee Mellor at the Silver Dollar in Toronto as we belted out “The Weight” as a tribute to the late Levon Helm, jamming with Jeremy Taggart at the benefit for the Gary Carter Foundation at Hurley’s Irish Pub, the beautiful setting sun on Howe Island during our Canada Day show, the hail storm on the 401 that hit us just outside of Windsor as Andre was behind the wheel … and the passionate indifference of the crowd at the Double B Ranch in Woodstock … I don’t know what we were thinking, playing at a country bar!

Here we are singing “The Weight” with Kristen Bussandri, with Jeremy Taggart on drums. Thanks Dave!

I wish we had a decent photo of the sunset itself … here’s its effects on the stage.

We also filmed a music video for “Sleepwalking“, and we’re going to release it early in the new year, with a little help from some old friends. Stay tuned for full details.

But until then, we’ve got one last show to play in 2012 and it’s happening this Saturday December 22 at Chateau du Lac in Hudson. For all our fans and friends in the West Island who refuse to drive downtown, now’s your chance to come and see us. We’ve got 3 sets of music planned for the evening, several of them featuring our very own Laurel Jackson on lead vocals.

We apologize if this show interferes with your Festivus plans. To remedy the situation Andre will be bringing his aluminum pole, I have compiled an extensive list for the Airing of Grievances, and Laurel has announced that she will take on all comers in the Feats of Strength. Now if that don’t put the egg in your nog I don’t know what will!

Show time is 9:00 pm. Click here to RSVP.

We’d like to wish everyone else a very happy holiday season. Stay safe out there folks. If you’ve been drinking, please don’t drive.

See you next year.
