Once a year our humble east coast region of Canada has a reward show for musical excellence ( East Coast Music Awards), believe it or not it is televised on the CBC, here are the nominees and other info:www.ecma.ca/. I have personally heard all of the 'blues' candidates...they are all excellent!! Down here we luv the blues...and celtic, i guess . I must admit though,everytime my daughter plays her bagpipes ol dad gets goosebumps ..And oh yeah, not many people relize that 'Sloan' is from this region, i think that most music fans have heard of them, hopefully. Here is an audio sample from an old time blues/rawker Matt Minglewood(Nova Scotia)...it rawks
Nope Danko, they don't qualify for this...its a geographic thing...this is only for the East Coast part of Canada. Wouldn't mind having them as guest entertainers though. 4 Provinces on the far right (map) New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland are considered the East Coast(Atlantic coast)...Danko is from Toronto Ontario. There are more people living in the GTA (greater Toronto area) than there are in the east coast provinces combined. The music scene basically sucks on the east coast...so every year i travel to either Toronto or Montreal to get my fix, but if you go to Toronto in the summer..Danko Jones are always over in Europe, rawkin for all you folks, our great friends on here.
Yeah Ontario is the best place to live in Canada, imho. My 2 brothers left here long time ago...never came back. At least i have places to stay, although quite far from Toronto..being Niagara Falls and Allison. I think i will be visiting them soon!
For sure Tidy, thank you so very much. Sounds like fun, well for me anyway . You will not need to worry about picking me up from the floor either...i don't list alcohol as one of my vices...but wait... I'll prolly faint soon as the band starts, bring smelling salts. :-[..BTW, Allison is near Barrie.
