We had a blast at Sawdust City Brewing Co. last weekend. They have some of the best beer I’ve ever tried. This coming weekend our brewery mystery solving continues as we head to good old Cecil’s Brewhouse and Kitchen for two nights of fun. Hope to see you there.
What a week to have 4 outdoor shows booked. But we still love it. This week we’ve got Cecil’s, St. Louis Bar and Grill, The North Bay Farmers Markets, Fish Bay Marina as well as a private gig on Canada Day. Visit the events page for more.
Check out “Last Night” by Ryan Problems and The Solutions
Most of them are up on the Events page. A few out of town shows are missing. We’ve got a couple weekends left too but we are almost booked solid so give me a shout if you want us to play somewhere.
In February we went to James Ahola’s studio to record a whole bunch of songs live off the floor. We did some old songs, some new songs and a few covers just for fun. I got Travis from Weekday Cocktails Films to film the whole night. Each Sunday for the next month I’ll be posting one of the videos created from that night.
Olympia – Rancid Cover – The first song from our Silver Beach sessions is a song from the first punk album that I ever owned. Its’ a pretty weird story how I even ended up with it.
Boys Of Summer – Don Henley I figured this song out randomly between takes when Fav and I were recording Please Stop Cryin’. I guess that meant we had to learn it as a band.
You Can’t Do That – The Beatles Every time I think of this song it reminds me of riding in my pal Ruggy’s little car. What a great tune. We did the best we could to do it justice.
Badly Bent – The Tractors This Tractors song (as far as I know) is a spin on an much older folk tune with very similar lyrics. I always liked the Tractors version.
I Know The Feeling, Last Night We wanted to record new versions of a couple songs from Please Stop Cryin’ with the new lineup.
This post will be updated with new videos each week.
Hey folks! I just updated the events page for Spring 2016. Its’ a little slim but we’re working on some videos, new songs and some new recordings. Cheers.

Dec. 19th – Off to another one of my former hometowns. Timmins, Ontario. The city with the heart of gold. Do they still call it that? I’ve been away some time. We’ll be joined at The Working Class by local Wyatt Young. $10 cover.
