Well we will be back at Hermann’s this weekend (January 27/28) since really no one else will hire us 🙂
Also we squeezed out another fine EP with some new tunes called “on tap”. We will have it at the gig if your interested and if you aren’t we will still have it at the gig. So either way you win!
Here is the cover and if you want a preview Margaret Gallagher will be featuring it this Saturday (Jan 28th) on CBC Radio One’s Hot Air 5-6pm. I will be talking about the album plus we’ll be listening to some other tracks that I think are just killer.
What the _________! 2015???? Honestly I thought we would all be living on the moon and flying about in spaceships. If your like me and feeling a bit bummed by this apparent lack in technological innovation we have all experienced come on down to Hermann’s and listen to the futuristic sounds of the HiFi 🙂
We are going to be at Hermann’s for two nights and it will be absolutely stellar. If your not blown away make sure you leave before the first set because we don’t give refunds after that point 🙂
Mark down January 16th and 17th….. We will be doing the same setlist each night but in reverse order so come down early on 16th and late on the 17th. This way you won’t miss a thing. Sorry I was trying to be clever and it is just a bit silly. Ah drummers…..
The Hifi will be rocking the Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney, October 3rd. It is a fundraising benefit for Thrive Malawi (www.thrivemalawi.ca)
It is a 7:30pm show and tickets are available from the box office: 250.656.0275 and online: marywinspear.ca
Well we are going to have a little party to celebrate our new collection of recorded songs (Hermann’s February 8th 8-11pm) and we hope you can be there with us. There will be lots of new stuff and lots of old stuff. The new stuff will be 5 shiny new songs that we are really excited about. Old stuff will be…..
While we were in the studio recording I brought in a big pocket full of Halloween candy that was passing its due date. You know you have to have fresh candy!!! And being the good Dad that I am I made sure the “old” candy was taken out of our house and put to good use. Besides I figured donning a fairy outfit entitled me to some treats 🙂
At some point during the recording I mentioned that that there was a lot of Coffee and Candy…. It struck a nerve with Art (who had been really impressed with side benefits of child raising) and he said what a good title for an album that would be. So here are some shots for the up coming CD to get you in the mood. For music or snacks….
Well time flies along…. It can feel like we are all just catching our breath, taking a gulp of air and racing off chasing life’s next adventure down…
At our last show I mentioned to a lot of folks that I was to be Tinkerbell for Halloween. My daughter had decided to be Peter Pan and naturally I thought I would get to be Captain Hook but she had other plans. Well there have been many enquires as to how it went and as they say a picture is worth a thousand words….
Oh yeah we are at Hermann’s on November 22nd…. 8-11pm… Call 250 388 9166 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for reservations…. Brings your wings!!! And no I won’t be wearing this costume… Unless I can convince the rest if the guys to wear their ferry outfits…
We had a great gig tonight at Butchart Gardens…
The band was in full swing.
The dancer was queued.
The ukulele was tuned.
Sadly bare minutes after Nick’s story about an ill fated gig that was wiped out by a flash flood we were literally shut down by a rain storm!!! Thanks to everyone for coming out and braving the weather…. We only had one song left so come out to our gig at ships point to catch it 🙂
