News From The Nest

June 22
The summer has started!  It looks like it will be a very busy one for us with nearly every weekend filled with a festival or show.  Our spring was also very busy and we were so lucky to have seen a lot more of this beautiful province than we have before.  We made a trip to the sunshine coast and fell in love with the folks in Powell River.  We hung out on the island and saw a few ancient forests near Port Renfrew and Port Alberni.  We then played at the Elevate the Arts Festival in Courtenay and had such a blast!  

May 26
We just got back from our CD release tour "On The Dusty Trail" with our dear pals No Mothers.  What a gift it was for us to spend 12 days on the road with these guys.  All told we played 11 shows, 2 farmers markets, 1 radio show, busked here and there and drove about 3300 km's, including some pretty dusty trails indeed.  Thanks everyone who made this tour awesome!  

Now we are gearing up for another tour!  We are off to the sunshine coast for a week and then down to Courtenay for Elevate the Arts Festival!

We released our newest music video, Priorites, today!  Big thanks goes to Kale Beaudry for the idea and then doing what he says he's going to do.  It turned out great.  Go to our music page to check that out.

You can now download our album off the website here, just go to the music tab and hit download.  If you want to you can have it for free, or if yah want you can toss us a few bones, either way is cool.  If you can we would love it if you shared it with your pals and took a look at our schedule to see if we can are coming to a town near you, come out and hang out, cut a rug with us and be our pal!

We picked up our brand new albums today and are so excited to share them with y'all.  We are going to be sending a digital download copy to everyone who signs up for our mailing by May 1st.  Physical copies will be available at our shows in May, with our official CD release show scheduled for May 12th at Lana Lou's Rock and Roll eatery in Vancouver.  It'll start at 8:00pm and will have Leah Barley opening, followed by No Mothers who are also joining us on tour the next day!  Check out our Shows page for more info on that and make sure you are on the mailing list if you'd like a digital copy of the album.

Ari had been invited to open for blues legend Curtis Salgado at the Fox Cabaret on April 15th.  He asked Jas to play a few tunes in the set as well and man was it a hoot!

  • Oh nature!  Nothing makes me happier than a hike to a waterfall, a jump in a lake or the view from a mountaintop.  This photo is from Murray Creek waterfall which is right outside of the town Spences Bridge.  We recently played a festival there a couple weekends ago called Desert Daze and it was so hot that a trip to this waterfall was fairly necessary.

  • What an incredible night at Williams Lake Performance in the Park!  It was cool to see the crowd tolerating a decent rain shower while Saenger and Thorne played a lovely set.  Afterwards the sun came back out and gave us a wonderful rainbow.  Kids, bannock and give-always were also involved.  Nice work Williams Lake.

  • In Whitewood Saskatchewan there is a man who made his very own pioneer village.  If you find yourself out that way you best be stopping at George Chopping's museum.  You won't regret it.
