Some very exciting news! We were recently awarded the2014 Roots Song of the Year award for our song "Miss Your Exit" at the Vancouver Island Music Awards. Our thanks to James Kasper for his dedication to the Island music scene by producing these award shows! We are grateful to have shared such a memorable evening with so many talented artists.
Thanks for stopping by.. .we;d like to show some hospitality,..offer you a cup of coffee, a chair in the garden, and an opportunity to be charmed by our pets... but hey, it's the web so we hope you'll click around, listen to a few tunes, and maybe check out an upcoming show.
As in our performances, I'm doing most of the talking online too. Bruce is the quipping sideman who stays out of trouble by minimizing his use of the microphone, and would rather be practising or booking our next gig. That seems to work for us.
We have an eclectic repertoire, recently described as "jazzy, folksy, bluesy..". (I was a little disappointed that they left out rootsy and rocky but, hey...) We play country songs, refurbished oldies, and our original tunes.
Bruce and I have a grassroots approach to music, which is quite evident when you check out our music collection. It's made up of our local guitar heroes, singer songwriters we know, and people we've had the pleasure of playing music with over the years. Neither of us have any stellar claims to fame; we think of music as a valuable lifestyle enhancement and we always enjoy meeting new musicians and playing for new audiences.
We host a weekly open mic at the Backstreet Pub which continues to inspire us with the amazing talents that come out to play, and we organize a monthly fundraiser that pairs performers with local charities.
So hang around a while, check out the music and upcoming shows, or drop us a line to say hello.
