"...the nerve to be different..."

NOTICE: UNFORTUNATELY DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID 19 SITUATION, ALL OF OUR LIVE SHOWS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED FOR NOW.

We’ve still got shows and musical guests booked way into December, but no one really knows when the shows will start back up. We are confident that they will and that our residency at the Old Winery will continue once this pandemic settles down.

In the meantime, we will keep in touch from time to time. We are tossing ideas around such as web-casts or YouTube concerts from my studio and will let you know as soon as there is something good to announce. We are woking out the logistics of these ideas and hopefully something will come of them as we go through this down time. The studio will be rockin’ in any case, as we will get together to record some new stuff.

So please everyone, do your part to keep our communities safe and virus free. Listen to the experts and limit your exposure to others for now. Somehow we can take the necessary precautions while at the same time supporting our local businesses as much as possible.

Call your favourite restaurants (i.e. The Old Winery) and order some take-out. Keep them in business! Go to your neighbourhood retailer and buy stuff.

If you like a musical artist, buy their music. Now is the time. First, go directly to their website and buy direct from them. They need the sales badly now with all of the live shows being cancelled. Then, after you’ve purchased their music, you can go to the “free” streaming services and listen again. Kind of, double-dipping, if you know what I’m trying to say. When you buy the music direct from the artist, they get 100%. When you stream a song, the artist gets next to nothing and often, nothing at all. Get creative on how to survive and help others who need it!

I heard this great idea. Before you go to bed at night, plug your phone charger in, then go to your favourite artist on Spotify. Pick one of their songs. Put it on repeat play. Turn the volume off and go to sleep. This artist will now have 7-8 hours of streams for that one song, which will pay out a few well needed bucks.
We all have to do our part to keep things as normal as possible, while at the same time keeping safe and considerate and giving to others who will need our help to survive this crisis.

Yours,
Steve
