Saturday night at the Cavern was a great last show of 2016. Although we didn't play many, 2 big shows to be exact, we played two AMAZING events, with Shine On and a packed house at our favorite underground spot in The Cavern!
Thanks to everyone who came out and danced with us at both those shows, you made it so fun!
We did finish a version of Body Language in the studio, but are taking a step back to work on this new batch of tunes and making a record that's more in line with what we are doing these days.
We appeaciate the patience and can't wait to show everybody our new music in 2017!
Happy New Year!
Aug 29 2016
It seems that everytime we play at the Shine ON Festival of Music and Art, the crowd gets better, more beautiful and even more into dancing. We would like to thank all who came out to our mid-afternoon party on the Alley-Cat stage and made it unforgetable. Seriously one of the best energies we've ever got from a crowd! Thanks to all the festival orginizers and volunteers. We can't wait to come back to Sandilands and rock it with Shine On next year! <3
April 1 2016
No april fools joke here, we have written a bunch of brand new songs that we feel are more in line with how our band sounds these days and decided to go back to the drawing board for the new album. This will push back the release date by quite some time since we're really gonna start from scratch, but don't worry, it'll be worth it! The new songs are very high energy and great for our live set, so we're going to do our best to bring that energy into the studio to deliver the music that will get you dancing!
Feb 15 2016
We are having a blast recording and messing around with plenty of new sounds for the upcoming album Body Language. We've recorded way to many songs and are going ot widdle it down to a managable number and will be working on post production soon!

ZACK ZACK ZACK ZACK ZACK
March 20 2015
It can't be overstated the role that Zack has played in our band. For 16 years Eli and Zack have been making music together, many of which under the None the Wiser brand, but all things must pass and Zack stepping away from the band to continue his work at becoming a lawyer. While Zack won't be performing with the group regularly, he's still our best bud, and is sure to be around in the studio, the jam space and helping guide us as only Zack can.

After a great weekend to end January, playing at Falcon Ridge Ski Hill followed by an overnight band jam retreat in a beautiful lakefront cabin, as well as a banging show at the Tap and Table. The band is taking some time in February to work on some new material. We've got some great work done already on some tunes everyone's bound to get up and dance to, as well as some laid back summer style grooves, in case you didn't miss the heat enough already. We are really amped up to show everyone the new tunes and can't wait to share them in our spring shows starting in March.

Churchill Connection Show
December 21st 2013
After a busy month of December filled with great shows with some amazing bands, I would like to personally thank all the bands who played at the Churchill Connection fundraiser for my friend Erin. JD Edwards Band, Sweet Alibi, BB Gun, and Evan Reeve all put on an unbelievably great show and we raised some much needed funds for Erin's medical expenses. This was a cause that was very close to home, and I'm deeply moved by the support of the music community here in Manitoba.
