5 out of 5 stars- The Atlantic Seabreeze
Ladies and Gentlemen, for those not in the know, we will be appearing this weekend at Erin’s Pub with our new buddy, Perry Mercer who will be taking over the drums this holiday season, while our beloved Michael Barker is out of the province. He will be joining us again for our 2 big holiday gigs as well! December 27th at the Delta, opening for Shanneyganock at their sold out Christmas show, and at The Johnson GEO CENTRE on December 31 for The Rolling Kings NYE Show! Tickets to this event are now very limited. O’Brien’s Music has less than a dozen left and Johnson Geo Centre is at around 15-20 as of today. Come get your tickets and ring in 2014 in the Rolling Kingdom with 300 rowdy revelers. Best view of the fireworks you’re gonna get. Tickets are 40 bucks, cash only at O’Brien’s Music Store and The Johnson Geo Centre.
Best year yet. We put out our very first album at the start of 2013 and sold out our CD release party. We received lots of radio play, TV spots, and radio interviews which meant sales started rising. We started playing more shows at more venues. We joined MusicNL and SOCAN and ECMA, learned what it means to manage a band (still learning), made inroads with some amazing musicians and industry professionals, WON A MUSICNL AWARD!!!!! (Bell Aliant Fans’ Choice Album of the Year 2013) and are now turning down shows due to demand. We are starting off the Shanneyganock’s Christmas at the Delta Hotel on December 27th and will be throwing our very first New Year’s Eve event at The Johnson Geo Centre. (Tickets are 40 dollars each at O’Brien’s Music and The Johnson Geo Centre -Cash Only as per vendor request)
We’re all pretty blown away by the amazing year we’ve been having. We will be discussing a lot of this tomorrow night on the NTV News. We interviewed yesterday with Amanda Mews, who managed to herd the cats and keep us in order long enough to chat like we’re normal.
We are stoked to announce that we were the recipients of the MusicNL Fan’s Choice Album of the Year! What a huge honour!!!! We still can’t believe it. Nice pic in this artist of Dawe’s loooooooong acceptance speech.

We are proud and very excited to announce that we are partnering with the Johnson Geo Center to put off a very special, one-of-a-kind, FIRST of its kind, New Year’s Eve event. Get dressed up, come drink some champagne for the big countdown. We’ll have a cocktail-style catering and, of course, we will be performing our stout hearts out for all in attendance. We hope to have tickets available soon. Come and get ‘em! You’ll have the BEST view of the fireworks in town and we promise to give the performance of our careers. We are INCREDIBLY excited to be able to put this off and thank the Geo Center for coming to us with this amazing opportunity!
