We're back in town after a very busy summer during which the band toured across the country, making stops at major festivals from Victoria BC all the way to St. John's NL. The tour was a big success, with lots of sell out shows - we also sold out of CDs and had to get more shipped out twice. Among the many highlights of the trip were:
- playing on the same stage Stevie Wonder had played on at the Montreal Jazz Festival (two jumbo-tron screens!)
- thousands of Vancouver fans dancing in the rain in Gastown
- playing shows in Newfoundland's beautiful Gros Morne National Park
- our new album Sa-ba-da-OW! rose to the top of the national campus radio charts
The band is now planning a busy fall - more shows (including a performance on the mainstage at the PEI Jazz and Blues Festival on Sept. 26), rehearsing and recording lots of new compositions, two music video projects and composing the score for an independent short film.

Sa-ba-da-OW! has been charting well, staying in the top 10 on Chartattack's national chart for 9 weeks, including 6 weeks at number 1.
