Bovil Square, August 22, 2014

It was Laurette’s turn to sing lead, which gave me a chance to clown around a bit behind her back. She had no idea that I was making faces.

Photo by Steve. We must have been doing “All Right Now” (by Free). There’s no bass in the first part of the song, leaving Steve free to snap some pics.

After “Relay For Life”

Sunday, June 8th, 2014

Our set went well and they liked us enough to book us for next year before we even got off the stage.

There was a serious accident on the highway which took the lives of several people.  Because of this, one of us couldn’t get to Smithers for the event and the rest of us couldn’t get home afterwards.  Our hearts go out to the families of those who were lost, especially to our own Laurette and her family.

“Relay For Life” tonight

Saturday, June 7th, 2014

About 9 pm tonight at Chandler Park in Smithers, we’ll take the stage at the “Relay for Life” fund raiser for the Canadian Cancer Society.  Hope to see you there!

We were the closing act for the Relay for Life concert event in Smithers last year. They’ve asked us to do that again this year on Saturday, June 7. When we find out approximately what time that will be, I’ll post it.

We just found out this weekend that the Relay for Life musical event in Smithers is happening this year on June 7.  Last year, we were told that that would be the last year for the event and we’re pleased to learn that it ain’t so.

We just got confirmed to play a party at the Bear Claw Lodge next week Thursday. I’ve never been out there but I hear it’s really nice. Looking forward to it! Pretty short notice but we can make it work.

Divas & Friends Variety Show, March 29

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

The Divas & Friends Variety Show is a fundraiser for the Smithers Art Gallery and this year it takes place on Saturday, March 29 starting at 7:30 pm in the Della Herman Theatre in Smithers, BC.  The event features sixteen groups or solo performers showcasing a variety of forms of music and dance.

The closing act is – you guessed it – us: Axes of Ego.  It’s good to see rock & roll being represented and we’re proud to do it.  We’re doing six songs, three covers and three originals.  So, come out, support the arts, and have a good time.


Welcome, John

Saturday, October 26th, 2013

We are pleased to welcome John de Boer to the band.  John is going to play bass with us and Steve will move over to guitars.  John is also adept at quite a few other instruments so who knows what else he might be called upon to play from time to time.
