Johnny Reid https://www.trirocks.com/blog/2018/4/johnny-reid Johnny Reid performed at the 'Tribute Communities Centre' in Oshawa, Ontario on April 12, 2018. 

Opening the evening was a solo act by the talented Jessica Mitchell, an all Country artist born in Toronto and lives in London, Ontario. Jessica's powerful vocals was astounding and she had a lot of feeling and emotions in her songs. To learn more on Jessica Mitchell, click here.

The main event, Johnny Reid was a huge hit... I had the opportunity to shoot Mr. Reid in March of 2016, same venue different name back then. 

Johnny Reid's motto I'm sure is 'Go big or Go Home'... His 'Revival' tour with his big band 'The Soul Providers' and special guest 'Glass Tiger' was high energy from start to finish. Johnny Reid loves interacting with the crowd and always has stories that keep the audience in splits of laughter. His one statement, 'Life is about who you surround yourself with' got a huge response from the crowd. He also mentioned a Musical he is working on for the past 2 years and was excited on its development. 

There was a tribute played to his band mate 'Mark Selby' who passed away in September last year of cancer. With the emotional ballads and the mixture of Country and Folk, the Scottish Mr. Reid creates his distinctive sound and his fans love it. 

Johnny Reid puts on a great show and loves his fans in Oshawa... Thank you Tribute Communities Centre for a another successful event.

From New York, USA... Too Many Zooz's performance was outstanding. My first time hearing this musical group and I have to admit, it was far from my regular genres.

Iced Earth https://www.trirocks.com/blog/2018/3/iced-earth Iced Earth performed at 'The Phoenix Concert Theatre' in Toronto on March 26, 2018. A 'Live Nation' presentation.

For a Monday night, The Phoenix Concert Theatre rocked the night away. It was an all Metal night for sure... almost everyone was dressed for the occasion with black leather jackets, faded torn jeans, their favourite 'Metal' band T-shirts and then there was me with my baby blue dress shirt shooting the event. Talk about not blending in... 

For some reason the door did not open on time, and quite a lot of folks missed the first three songs of 'Kill Ritual' one the opening bands. Sanctuary was the second band to perform. They dedicated the entire set to Warrel Dane who passed away last year. Overall a good performance. (Click here for more on Sanctuary).

The main event of the night 'Iced Earth' come out with a bang, light show, pyro and all... The energy could be felt as soon as the band started both from the musicians and the crowd. Focal point of the night was the drummer, his entire 'Rock Kit' in a cage/rack which was well used by front man formally from 'Into Eternity'... Stu Block. Stu, would climb the rack and perform some of his songs, without missing a beat. 

Overall an amazing performance by Iced Earth and for all you Metal Heads out there, do not miss out on this band.

Opening act for tonight was a Canadian singer/songwriter 'Matthew Barber' from Toronto, who set the stage for the main act of the night.

I had last seen 'Jake Smith' in May 2017 as an opening act in Toronto. It was an acoustic solo performance and somehow, I knew there was rocker deep down in 'The White Buffalo'.

Yes... When Jake Smith (Guitar/vocals), Matt Lynott (Drums) and Christopher Coffee (Bass) came out on stage it was 'Rock & Roll'. Hailing from Los Angeles, California this band rocked the venue. The music of 'The White Buffalo' is a mixture of Alternative Country, Rock and Folk with a lot of energy. 

Toronto was one of the stops on their US, UK and Canada Tour. Click here for 'The White Buffalo' tour!

Our Lady Peace & Mathew Good https://www.trirocks.com/blog/2018/3/our-lady-peace-mathew-good Our Lady Peace & Mathew Good with Ascott Royals brought out a crowd of all ages at the Tribute Communities Centre in Oshawa on March 13, 2018. It was the eighth stop on their joint Canadian tour.

Rock veterans 'Our Lady Peace' and 'Mathew Good' rocked the Tribute Communities Centre in Oshawa. 'Ascott Royals', a high spirited was the perfect opener for the two bands that followed... I've had the opportunity to watch Ascott Royals before so I knew what to expect. Jimmy Chauveau, the lead singer never disappoints with his vocal range and pleasing personality. The band's powerful catchy tunes tore away through their entire set in a breeze. They ended by asking the crowd to raise their hands in the air and clap along to their last song.

As the arena started filling up and preparations for the next band completed... it was time! 

Mathew Good, a Canadian alternative rock artist stepped out on stage and got the party started. He played two of my favourite songs 'Something Like A Storm' and 'Apparitions'. Good's one comment was "I don't how people can sit down at a Rock Concert"... almost immediately the fans complied by standing up!

Our Lady Peace waisted no time and started the set with 'Hiding Place for Hearts' followed by 'Superman's Dead'. Their played an acoustic set which included 'In Repair' and 'Somewhere Out There'. A remarkable light show accompanied OLP's stellar performance and for a Tuesday night in Oshawa, the venues was pretty much packed. The Encore comprised of 'Ballad of a Poet', 'Hello Time Bomb' and my all time favourite 'Starseed'.

All in all it was a great night for Oshawa and Tribute Communities Centre... Make sure you catch them on their Canadian Tour!

And for the main act... A glam metal band from the city of angels (L.A.), Steel Panther, well known for their profanity and their onstage personae that parody the stereo typical 1980's 'Rock' lifestyle.

Arkells - Knocking At The Door Tour https://www.trirocks.com/blog/2017/11/arkells---knocking-at-the-door-tour Arkells with special guest Matt Mays performed at the Tribute Communities Centre in Oshawa on November 23, 2017.

Opening the night was Canadian indie rock singer-songwriter Matt Mays. I watched Matt Mays in concert this September when he performed in Oshawa at The Music Hall Night Club & Concert Theatre., which was not so long ago. I knew he would put on a great performance.

The Arkells, from Hamilton Ontario stormed out on stage and from the get-go captured the audience. Max Kerman, lead vocals and Mike DeAngelis, lead guitar stole the show with Max's stage presence and Mike's guitar riffs.

The Arkells started their set with "Amazing Grace" and segued into "Making Due". "Come To Light" and "Michigan Left" were next. I love their two cover of Jerry Lee Lewis "Pullin' Punches / Great Balls Of Fire" and "My Music At Work", a Tragically Hip Cover.

Thanks Arkells for an amazing show!

Foreigner - 2017 https://www.trirocks.com/blog/2017/11/foreigner---2017 Foreigner’s 40th Anniversary Tour with Prism was hosted by Tribute Communities Centre in Oshawa, Ontario on November 13, 2017 - by Tania Normand.

This was my second time watching them perform live; the last was in February of 2015.

The night started off with a Canadian Rock band from Vancouver formed in 1977. ‘Prism’ needed no introduction at this venue. They kicked off their set with my all-time favourite ‘Spaceship Superstar’ and hearing the screams from the crowd it was evident I was not alone. “You Walked Away’ was next and they ended their 6 song set with ‘Armageddon. 

Foreigner opened their set with the electrifying song “Double Vision” with lead singer Kelly Hansen wowing the crowd with his high energy vocals and moves.  The set continued with Foreigner’s classic tunes of  ‘Head Games’, ‘Cold as Ice, Waiting for a Girl Like You, & Blue Morning Blue Day”.

It was spectacular to view the amazing array of lights and special effects included in this 40-year anniversary tour and of course the unlimited energy from Kelly Hanson who never stops moving while working the crowd.

Kelly Hansen while introducing the band members made a special mention to the long-time founding and original member of Foreigner's Mick Jones. Jones, a guitarist, singer, songwriter and record producer formed Foreigner with the original lead singer Lou Gramm in 1976. With all intros out of the way, the band segued into yet another classic “Feels like the First Time” with the spotlight on Mick Jones.

The night closed with Foreigner performing their two of their outstanding hits ‘I Want to Know What Love Is’ and “Hot Blooded” for their encore presentation. An excellent performance by Foreigner who gave the crowed exactly what they came out to hear on a Monday night, their all time favourites!

They did promise their fans and unbelievable experience and were true to their word. The lineup included Vanilla Ice, Salt-N-Pepa, Rob Base, Young MC and C+C Music Factory.

Dave King the lead vocalist was full of energy and was just about all over the stage strutting to the tempo of their music. This 7 piece band was astonishing and to witness this fusion unfold into great catchy tunes was unbelievable!!!

It was my first time listening to this band and I really liked the Celtic spin… it was unique!

The two opening acts ‘Dylan Walshe’ and ‘The White Buffalo’ were a one man acoustic act which worked well with the high energy ‘Flogging Molly’!!!

Lulu In Toronto https://www.trirocks.com/blog/2017/5/lulu-in-toronto I came across 'Lulu' in going through my concert list and could not believe that Lulu was actually performing in Toronto; of course I had to submit a media request for sure and that too at ‘The Danforth Music Hall’, one of my favourite venues. I finally made the cut, but heard the venue changed and she would now perform at ‘The Velvet Underground’.

Smaller venue with an intimate crowd worked well for that night’s performance. It was my first time I seen rows of seating at the Underground for the crowd  and the now very happy fans were pleased at this arrangement, as they were anxious not knowing what the changed venue had in store for them. Standing in line and speaking with a few, I learned of many diehard fans which crossed the border to view tonight’s performance and rock out with the one and only ‘Lulu’.

The British legend opened the show with ‘Shout’ (The Isley Brothers) and then went to ‘The Boat That I Row’. She then did a tribute to the late David Bowie, ‘The Man Who Sold the World’….

I had a blast and judging by the smiles in the crowd, a fun time had by all. Thanks to the promoters and Embrace for a great show!!!

Dean Brody - Beautiful Freakshow Tour 2017 https://www.trirocks.com/blog/2017/4/dean-brody Dean Brody “Beautiful Freakshow Tour 2017”-Tribute Communities Centre- April 29, 2017. - by Tania Normand

Perfect timing… Today I had a chance to kick up a storm with my new cowboy boots for Dean Brody’s event in Oshawa. Yes, the ‘Beautiful Freakshow Tour’ with ‘James Barker Band’ and ‘High Valley’.

Oshawa was the fourth stop on “The Beautiful Freakshow” tour…

Four Canadians from Barrie Ontario called the James Barker Band was the opening band for the night, which promptly started at 7:00 pm. They performed some of their top charting hits which included “Chills” & “Lawn Chair Lazy” followed by “Living the Dream” in which they got the crowd to use their lighters and cell phones to create the mood. A lot of energy on stage with this 5 piece band…

Next on stage were 2 Canadian brothers Brad and Curtis Rempel, who were born in a Mennonite community in La Crete, Alberta. They started their carrier with and an Open Mic night at a local establishment, the crowd at this gig loved what they heard and urged the band to continue playing.  But unfortunate for this duo, they only knew one song which they then repeated loud and proud…. Yes, this was the advent of ‘High Valley’ which formed in 1997.  During their performance they spoke of a touching story about their father who had to use the family farm as collateral to finance the boys with their music career. They then segued into “A Father’s Love”, a touching tune and a tear jerker for sure. The tempo was then elevated and the crowed love it. They even decided to do a dance within the crowd and gave away a bunch of gifts to a girl that competed in a dance off. The set ended with their hit “I’m Gonna Make You Mine”.

For the main act of the night as the lights dimmed, the crowd roared and cheered for none other than Dean Brody who took to the stage guns a blazin’. Dean Brody has great stage presence and loves to interact with his fans. Beach balls were flying around in the crowd and the fans continued to sing along. An interesting part of his set was his two chainsaws, powered up and ready to go while singing his song. At one point I thought he was going to juggle these power tools while he sang, but I relaxed when he continued with his guitar. Highlight of the night was when he performed on a second stage in front of the sound board. It depicted a camp site, very well done I must say. Dean then called up a young boy from the crowd to sit with him as he continued with a few songs from the set. I believe it was the boy’s mother’s birthday so she was also invited to the ‘Campsite’ where Dean Brody sang ‘Happy Birthday’. Everything fell in place so well, it was an amazing touch. He then headed back up to the main stage, all the way interacting with his fans that loved every second of it. Dean further went on to sing the balance of his set which included “Beautiful Freakshow”, “Bring Down the House” and a crowd favourite “Canadian Girls”.

A big thank you to all the bands, The Tribute Communities Centre and TriRocks for another amazing Saturday night filled with Country Music!!!

Zara Larsson & Clean Bandit https://www.trirocks.com/blog/2017/4/zara-larsson-clean-bandit  A Monday night out at the Phoenix Concert Theatre… I was amazed to see the venue packed with a loud, energetic Torontonian crowd especially for a Monday night. Yes it was all for Zara Larson and Clean Bandit that played to a sold out show here in Toronto!!!

Zara Larsson was the opening act for the night, a singer and songwriter from Sweden who is taking over the pop music world. Her powerful vocals especially, from a petite 19 year old were astounding. Zara along with a group of energetic dancers kept the crowd tapping their toes and moving in rhythm to the loud beat of their popular tunes.

‘Lush Life’ kicked of the set with the energetic dancers followed by ‘What They Say’ and then a cover from Tinie Tempah, ‘Girls Like’. The set comprised of 10 songs which blew through real quick. This young artist is going a long way and we will definitely be hearing from this rising star in the near future.

Clean Bandit, came out on stage after two huge chants from a restless audience. A British group formed in Cambridge and are well known for their electronic, dance-pop music all over the world. Grace Chatto held the audience’s attention with her mesmerizing vocals and her skill with the Cello. Jack Patterson on Bass and Luke Patterson on Drums, made sure they held that tempo with those pounding beats. There were two additional vocalist who started the show and continued to fill in with solo and harmonies. This was my first time listening to this genre and I have to say, I was impressed. Electronics have come a long way! 

A huge shout-out to Embrace for an amazing event...

Crued !!! The Notorious Motley Crew Tribute Band https://www.trirocks.com/blog/2017/3/crued-the-notorious-motley-crew-tribute-band Crued !!! The Notorious Motely Crue Tribute needs no introduction; they are one of Canada’s leading tribute bands for Motely Crue… and they rocked the place.

The opening band was Bon Jovi Forever; a tribute band for Bon Jovi… Baz Litlerock, lead vocals and guitar is a well-known musician amongst the locals. Baz and his band put on a great show and worked the crowd for the next two acts.

Next on stage was John Corabi… John’s acoustic performance was with his son ‘Ian’ on percussions and he joked about Ian being ‘his bitch’ on this tour. Corabi played a few songs from “The Dead Daisies”; it’s one of his new projects. The word on the street is The Dead Daisies probably performing in Toronto this year.

Crued took the stage to end this Rock N Roll night, loud and proud. The first time I saw this band perform was in Port Dover at a ‘Friday the 13th’ event and was blown away. This is one fun band that is full of energy and has a great stage presence…

Thank you Ziggy for the invite to this amazing event at 'The Rockpile'... until next time, Rock On!!!

Lady Plays Guitar https://www.trirocks.com/blog/2017/3/lady-plays-guitar I was given an opportunity to cover an event “Lady Plays Guitar” in the ‘Aurora Winter Blues Festival’ on February 25, 2017.

This event was hosted at St. Andrew’s College Theatre in Aurora, Ontario and the three ladies were none other than Suzie Vinnick, Cecile Doo-Kingue and Sue Foley. These ladies’ performances were stunning, each bringing their special talent to the stage.  I covered Sue Foley’s performance a couple of years ago, so I knew I was in for a rockin’ night of blues and then I heard Suzie and Cecile… One word wow. Their guitar solos were felt by each and everyone in the audience and I could feel their heart and soul immersed in what they do best from behind my camera…

A great night of blues… special thanks to Suzie Vinnick, Cecile Doo-Kingue and my all time favourite Sue Foley for their great performance and to the Aurora Winter Blues Festival for granting me access to cover this outstanding event.

Blue Rodeo https://www.trirocks.com/blog/2017/2/blue-rodeo Blue Rodeo “1000 Arms Tour 2017”-Tribute Communities Centre- Saturday February 11, 2017.

For the second time around I get to see and review the great Canadian Band “Blue Rodeo”

The show started promptly at 8:00pm with an opening band comprising of 4 gents hailing from Toronto, Canada named “The Sadies”. The Sadies reminded me of a band “The Mamas & The Papas” and I was told they did duets collaborating family members into their performances. ‘The Sadies’ have a country and western sound with an east coast blues twist in their music. The song “There’s a Higher Power” got the crowd’s attention and never lost the momentum. They also included several songs from their ‘Northern Passages’ album. I got to say they put on a high energy show even though the sound was muffled at times.

Blue Rodeo hit the stage with Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor with ‘Heart of Mine’. The stage was in total darkness with only a ray of light shining on this duo… The fourth song of the night was “Disappear”; this song is about a band member’s old flame. The song ended with an amazing piano solo and Jim Cuddy working the crowd.

The list goes on… the next song ‘1000 Arms’ which was also the name of this tour for 2017 and then an oldie but one my favorites “Rose Colored Glasses”. No Blue Rodeo concert is complete without their more popular song such as “After the Rain” & “Bad Timing”, a great win with the crowd. Blue Rodeo acknowledged ‘The Sadies’ for being part of this tour by performing one of their songs “Palace of Gold”. The Band played a continuous set for 2 hours straight with great energy and crowd interactions for the entire night. On completing their set list the band exited and did not return for almost two whole minutes for their encore presentation. Then screams and roars of the crowd were intense. The encore encompassed yet another all-time favorite of mine “Try”. This was the very first song I heard from “Blue Rodeo” many years ago.

Yet another great performance from Blue Rodeo and wish them all the best in their ‘Thousand Arms Tour 2017’

Thank you to The Tribute Communities Centre for the venue and hosting the event and to TriRocks Photography for an entertaining Saturday night out!

Tim Hicks https://www.trirocks.com/blog/2017/1/tim-hicks Tim Hicks "Shake These Walls Tour 2017" - Tribute Communities Centre - Friday, January 20, 2017.

On this mild January evening walking up to the newly named venue, I was very excited to review my first show of 2017 “Tim Hicks” at the Tribute Communities Centre, formally (GM Centre) in Oshawa. For those who know me know I love my country music, Hell Yeah!

To start the night off was Chris Labelle (Vocals), Jeremy Bortot (Lead Guitar), Chris McComb (Rhythm guitar), Dan DiGiacomo (Bass) and Jordan Potvin (Drums) in the band known as “River Town Saints”. These 5 guys come from the surroundings of the Ottawa valley in Ontario. River Town Saints are big for their song Cherry Bomb. Their most recent single is “Bonfire”. Their set included the two songs mentioned along with “Hungover yet” and “Friday Night”. It was unfortunate the crowd was still filling in and their performance was missed by many.  However they put on a great show and interacted well with the crowd, I am sure we will see more of the ‘RTS’ in the near future.

Next performance of the evening was 36 year old Jason Blaine from Pembroke Ontario. Jason Blaine was discovered in 2002 during a talent search sponsored by CMT. Jason Blaine lit up the stage with his amazing vocals, singing songs like “Spotlight” and with a very touching song that is very dear to his heart and career called “They Don’t Make 'Em Like That Anymore”. Jason Blaine and Tim Hicks share a mutual commonality together as they both started singing on a wee stage in a bar called “The Corral” in Oshawa Ontario. Today they are touring together, sharing a much larger stage and performing to bigger crowds. Jason Blaine’s comes across as a down to earth person and even though I have not had a chance to meet him personally, I’m sure he has a great personality. Go Jason!!!

Music and lights were turned off while excitement starts to build amongst the fans… The screams were increasing while each band member took to the stage and I wasn’t sure who was louder the crowd or the first note that Tim Hicks played. The stage now lights up with blue lighting and dry ice smoke as Tim Hicks starts his set with “Shake these Walls” the crowd is now ecstatic. Tim, a proud Canadian hailing from Niagara Falls, Ontario started “Shake These Walls Tour” on January 6th, 2017 and Oshawa was number 10 out of the 15 stops. His set list included songs “Slow Burn”, Stompin Ground”, and “Strong Beer” just to name a few. Tim loves interacting with the crowd, this time it was with huge ‘Beach Balls’… These blown up balls were bouncing back and forth from the stage to the crowd and back. A good time had by all.

A big Thank you to Tim Hicks, The Tribute Communities Centre, and TriRocks for an amazing Friday night filled with country music!!!

Kip Moore https://www.trirocks.com/blog/2016/10/kip-more Kip Moore-General Motors Centre- Saturday October 15, 2016.

So tonight I get to review Kip Moore.

The opening performance of the night was 29 year old Meghan Patrick from Bowmanville Ontario, who felt right at home performing in Oshawa. She is new on the scene with just over a year of performing and now opening for a major Country artist. Meghan released her debut album in April 2016 and performed a couple from that album tonight. They were the popular “Bow Chicka Wow Wow” & “Grace & Grit”.

Next on stage was 31 year old singer, songwriter & record producer Jon Pardi born in Dixon California. I had never heard him before tonight and I’m not sure why. This guy has talent and will be going places. He has opened for Dierks Bentley, Alan Jackson and now Kip Moore. It’s only a matter of time he will be headlining his own show.

It was now time for Kip Moore to take the stage. Kip Moore is known for his popular songs like “Dirt Road” and “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck” which he performed to the delighted crowd. Born on April 2, 1980 in Tifton, Georgia this 36 year old performer puts on an amazing performance, keeping the crowd on their feet the whole time. Most of the stage was back lit and with smoke which made it difficult to see him or his band at times.

In true sporting sprit, Kip stopped the show to let Toronto’s Blue Jays fans chant ‘Let’s Go Blue Jays’ I have to admit it was pretty wild hearing the entire venue in an uproar.

Another great show that I am honored to have been able to see and review. I love my country music so I am always in my element seeing country artists perform.

Thank you General Motors Centre and TriRocks Photography for a great night!

Honeymoon Suite https://www.trirocks.com/blog/2016/7/honeymoon-suite Honeymoon Suite at the General Sikorski Hall, Oshawa on Friday, July 22, 2016

A birthday celebration wouldn’t be complete without a rocking night out with three great bands.

Honeymoon Suite rocked it out in Oshawa at the General Sikorski Hall, but not before two amazing bands built up the momentum.

First up was Jay Alan from the Crossdockers. Unfortunately he became a ‘Crossdocker’ as his band members were held up at the border and could not reach the venue in time. Not letting that hinder any plans for the night, Jay took the stage solo and sang a great acoustic set full of soul and passion. Jay Alan, a well-rounded musician did not disappoint the fans.

Next up on stage was “The House Call” … They performed many of their popular originals songs along with some covers. This band, in its entirety performs covers under the name of ‘Acoustica’ and they do a stellar job. David Wells, the lead singer and a good friend dedicated a song ‘Take a picture by Filter’ to moi as it happened to be my birthday and was one of my many favourites which they do so well. I was in my elements.

Honeymoon Suite who needs no introduction stole the show. This Canadian hard rock band from Niagara Falls, Ontario rocked. Johnny Dee was pumped and belted out his lyrics while interacting between the crowd, his guitar and microphone. Their performance included great hits like, “New Girl Now”, “Burning in Love”, “Love Changes Everything” just to name a few. Their vocals and sound was amazing, not much to be said for the lighting though, it could definitely use some work. The band is tight and has lost nothing musically. Don’t miss your chance to see Honeymoon Suite at their next performance in a city near you.

Band members include: Derry Grehan, Johnnie Dee, Dave Betts, Peter Nunn, Gary Lalonde

Special thanks go to Shamus Black and Black Moon Entertainment for hosting these live events and promoting live music.

Great show, great night and a great birthday!

Gary Mullen & The Works https://www.trirocks.com/blog/2016/3/gary-mullen Rock You” and “We are the Champions” was incredible with everyone on their feet clapping, dancing, and roaring the audience was pumped.

What a phenomenal night with great sound superb lighting and an excellent performance by the band. One Night of Q

One night of Queen at the GM Centre, Oshawa ON – Wednesday, March 30, 2016.

Being a huge fan of Queen, I was honored and grateful to be reviewing one of the only 2 Canada performances of “One Night of Queen” at the GM Centre in Oshawa. This was the first show in Canada in over 6 years.

Since there was no opening act the band took the stage right on time starting off the show with the song “One Vision”.  Gary Mullen the lead singer of the band was amazing with his signature moves and gestures it almost felt like Freddie Mercury was on stage. Gary got the audience involved including giving a young boy a high five.

At times if you closed your eyes you could envision that it was the original band on stage that’s how good they were sounding.   Gary and the band which included Billy Moffat (Bass Guitar), Jon Halliwell (Drums), Malcolm Gentles (Keyboards), & David Brockett (Electric Guitar) were remarkable. Other songs of the evening included “Under Pressure”, “I want to be free”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Fat Bottomed Girl”, and many other popular tunes. They also did a little medley of “La Bamba” and the infamous “Twist and Shout”. After an intermission the band was back on stage with more intensity and energy, they were having fun. Gary ensured the fans were thoroughly entertained by interacting with the crowd frequently.

A few more of my favorite songs in the second set was “I want it all”, “Love of my Life” and “Crazy little thing called love”. The encore presentation comprising of “Radio Gaga”, “We Will

ueen is impressive.

Rock & Roll!

Johnny Reid https://www.trirocks.com/blog/2016/3/johnny-reid Johnny Reid at the GM Centre, Oshawa, Ontario on Saturday, March 12, 2016

A tantalizing performance none other than Mr. Johnny Reid last night in Oshawa. By watching Johnny perform with his band and backup vocals gave a whole new meaning to how I listen to his music, and his electrifying personality on stage was felt by many throughout the venue. Born in Scotland and grew up in Brampton, Ontario, Johnny has come a long way in his music career.

There were two opening acts; the first performer was Aaron Goodvin from Spirit-River Alberta with just his acoustic guitar and a great sense of humor. With his ballcap pulled down over his eyes and piercing country radio voice he charmed the crowd with his humble awe-shucks attitude. His song “Knock On Wood” is the past 10 years of my life wrapped into three and half minutes,” says Aaron.” “It’s also a great reminder to myself of all the hard times I got through just to get a song like this on the radio.” He had told Johnny Reid that “All I want to do is share my music with an audience” says Aaron. Johnny Reid has taken him under his wing which shows you what kind of guy he truly is. He truly wants to help other artists.

Calgary’s JJ Shiplett came on next. He is a journeyman, hard-working musician flying under the radar until Reid became a fan and now his manager and started directing his career. With a beat up hat and looking like a Civil War veteran, Shiplett rarely smiles while doing sombre though catchy songs that fall on the Steve Earle side of country music. He’s got a great guitarman who bends notes on his Tele like it was a lap steel and does double duty with the fiddle as well. On the strength of tunes like “Higher Ground” and “Something to Believe In” JJ Shiplett is one to watch.

I can’t end this review without expressing how Johnny Reid was sure to fire up the stage with the Durham Police on stage drumming away, to him going and giving hugs to fans. He is truly a very humble man and expresses that very deeply in his actions and music. Nonetheless with the dazzling light shows and the amazing talent of all the musicians that night I can say it was one incredible show. This just goes to show that with amazing talent and one incredible performer little dreams can come true.

Blue Rodeo https://www.trirocks.com/blog/2016/2/blue-rodeo Blue Rodeo at the GM Centre, Oshawa ON Saturday, February 20, 2016

On a quiet Saturday afternoon I was informed of an opportunity to do a review on a band and watch their live concert. As this was at the eleventh hour I had to hurry through the next few hours to be in time to see Blue Rodeo.

The show began with an opening band named the Strumbellas; a swing of indie rock, alternative, country & folk pop, the music was astounding. One of the band members, David Ritter, vocals and keys is from Oshawa, so needless to say he was the focus of the evening. The band consist of songwriter Simon Ward on vocals and guitar,  John Hembrey on lead guitar, Isabel Ritchie on violin, Darryl James on bass guitar, and Jeremy Drury on drums. I got to say they are a well-rounded band and had what it takes to get the GM Center in an uproar.

It was now time for the headliner; a Canadian country rock band Blue Rodeo to hit the stage with their opening performance of “Trust Yourself”. The crowd cheered and roared there was definitely no disappointment to be heard.

Not only were the fans screaming the well-known songs “Bad Timing”, “Try” and “It Hasn’t Hit Me Yet” they were up in their seats swaying their arms and dancing on their feet keeping time with Blue Rodeo’s vibe. After looking around the venue, I joined in as well and felt the music take over.

Jim Cuddy sang his remarkable song, about a woman that owned a coffee shop in a little town and who was bipolar, it was called “A Thousand Arms”.  Another great highlight of the show was a solo performance by Greg Keelor, “Dark Angel” got the audience mesmerised as there was pin drop silence in the crowd.

Blue Rodeo set list also included their new material, “Rabbit’s Foot”, “New Morning Sun”, and “Stealin All My Dreams” to name a few. The band as usual was in sync and had continuous play; they did not need to work the crowd with anything other than their music ‘Blue Rodeo Style’.

The band ended the evening by bringing the Strumbellas back on stage and singing “Lost Together”.

A phenomenal concert, thank you Blue Rodeo and the Strumbellas for a remarkable show performed at the GM centre in Oshawa. I will never tire of watching one of my favourite bands in my home town. Until the next show!
