Tonight we will be hearing from two classic rock bands, a maritime treasure with a violin, a Roch and Roller and a 21st century Canadian group who split much to early.
1. Roch Voisine
“Shout Out Loud”
This is a live version of this song that Roch performed at a Canada Day celebration. The band is very tight with a great sax solo. Roch is a very consistent performer, always hitting his mark.
If you like your fiddling to be Celtic, then you will love this. Natalie MacMaster is a virtuoso in this discipline.
“Day by Day”
Good story about this band. At one point in my life, I lived in a town with about 3,000 people. The bar in town brought this band in to play a one night stand. Bar could only hold about 250 patrons, but they managed to pack in about 400 of us. Great night, huge party. Then the encore. A huge fight breaks out and Doug is surrounded by bouncers and escorted through the mayhem. All in all, a terrific evening in Saskatchewan. I even made about 50 bucks at the pool table. Ahhh, memories. Unfortunately, Doug Bennett passed away a few years back, glad I did get to see them.
4. Pat Travers
“Boom Boom (Out go the Lights)”
You want some rock and roll. I can’t hear you, Do you want some ROCK AND ROLL. I can still remember my mullet.
A great band that broke up before it’s time. Dallas Green has an insane heavy metal singing voice.
