I went home to Iroquois Falls to play at a fundraiser for the award winning stage stars Competetive Dance Team. This is the second of their fundraisers that I have had the pleasure of playing at and both times they made it extremely worth the trip. The show was at one of my favourite Northern Ontario watering holes, The Station Restaurant and Bar in Iroquois Falls, Ontario.
This was a very special show because not only was it the first chance I have gotten to play in my home town in almost two years, but it was also the first road show I have played with my new band member, Mike Favretto. Mike is the first addition to the hopefully growing Ryan Problems Band. He is my right hand man and string expert. He plays the bass and some mandolin on my new songs.
A local photographer from Robert Jolin Photographix came out and documented the event with some fantastic high quality photos. Here is a sample photo from his online portfolio and you can also check out digital samples from the entire album at the link below.
I am headed up North again for Canada Day weekend and we are looking for more shows around the Timmins, Cochrane, Iroquois Falls and New Liskeard areas. More dates will be posted soon but in the meantime if you can help us out with a show in your area please get in touch with me through the contact form or on my Facebook profile.
