Spring and Summer 2013

Monday, April 29th, 2013

Here’s what we’ve got scheduled so far for the next few months:

  • Tentatively scheduled: a private event for August 16 in Burns Lake.

Note: Steve won’t be around for Kispiox or for August 4 so Karl Wyssen will be filling in on bass.  Also, Heather may or may not be around for those gigs but we’ll figure out something if she’s not.

Schnai Dai was a Blast

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Schnai Dai was a blast. It’s always fun to see people moving chairs and tables out of the way to clear space to dance – and they danced right to the end, including two extra songs to placate those who still hadn’t had quite enough after five hours.

Perhaps it was a case of people really wanting to hear a certain kind of music, which turned out to mostly be what we’d prepared.  Perhaps it was the blowing off of a full ski season’s worth of steam.  Hell, they even danced to one of our original tunes (“Shopping Blues”) which I don’t expect many of them had heard before.

It’s still winter up on the mountain but the warm response (and wild antics) from staff and customers alike made for a helluva night.  People kept thanking us.  Well, we loved having such an appreciative crowd.  So, thank you.

Axes of Ego does Schnai Dai at Hudson Bay Mountain

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

We’re playing Schnai Dai at the Hudson Bay Mountain Resort on April 14, 2013.  This is their annual end-of-ski-season party and we’re looking forward to rockin’ the place.  From what I’ve heard, it’s a fun party – especially with a good, rockin’ band!
