What a great crowd last night at O’Reilly’s in St. John’s. We have had a few questions on the new faces, so we may as well make a round of introductions.
Last year, Michael Barker, a founding member of the band (and the guy who came up with the band’s name) decided to go back to school full-time. Since he did, he’s been doing amazing and knocking out A’s. Michael decided to step down and our new drummer, Perry Mercer, took over. Perry played his first gig with us at Shanneyganock’s Christmas show at The Delta.
Paul Hayward, our original whistle player and all-around nice guy, left the band this month to get on the family wagon. We are all very happy to announce that Paul and his wife, Kelly, are expecting their first child together. Kelly has a daughter, Lyla, who is very excited to be a big sister.
Scott Ring has been filling in for Paul here and there for the last few months and graciously accepted a permanent spot as our new whistle player.
We will be updating our page soon with the current roster!
