Gig at McNally Robinson Booksellers!

So, we are once again playing a two-hour set at the lovely and delicious Prairie Ink Restaurant at McNally Robinson Booksellers, and are quite pumped for it! I am finally coming out of the end of a bad cold (be merciful when you write your reviews), Larry is finally back in the province after some extreme East Coast jet-setting, and our percussionist/guitarist/vocalist Evan Robson, Esq. is taking lead on a few songs this time around! To clarify, the FOOD at Prairie Ink is what is lovely and delicious; do not eat the books, the servers, or the tables. Just the food. Hope to see you there Saturday the 17th at 8pm!

One-Take Wonders/Practice Sessions #3: Save You

Well, tomorrow is the big night!! We had a tiny booking snag, and the gig has moved to Friday November 25th at 8pm; a day earlier. I hope you can all make it! Prairie Ink has limited seating, so get there and camp out a bit early- eat, drink, and be merry! 😉 Larry and Evan and I are really looking forward to sharing our music with you.

One more little snippet from our practice sessions; this is from one of my top three favourite singer/songwriters named Matthew Perryman Jones. He is simply a genius.

Hard At Work! One-Take Wonders/Practice Sessions #1: I’m Yours

We are, as the title states, Hard At Work practising for the Prairie Ink gig at 8pm on Nov. 25! Evan Robson has joined us for the duration, and now that Larry actually has another musician in the kiddie pool with us, his enjoyment rate has gone up 1000%… 😉

Here is a clip of one we have been Working Hard on! Enjoy!

Come one, come all!

Hey all!

We are super excited to be playing at Prairie Ink in Saskatoon on November 25!

We have been learning a ton of new material for the sets, and we have a special guest playing with us for the evening; Mr. Evan Robson! Evan brings a wealth of experience as a percussionist, and will be bringing his guitar as well to sweeten the pot.

The sets this time will be exclusively covers that Larry and I have lovingly picked and curated for your listening enjoyment, from multiple musical eras. We will keep working hard to make a quality show for you to dine by, and you just make sure you come! Music starts at 8!

One Take Wonders pt. 11: Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For

We continue our One-Take Wonders series! We are learning a ton of NEW songs for an upcoming block party (as well as the Nov. 26 McNally Robinson gig); this isn’t one of them. We just love playing it. Sooo… U2?

Until Next Time,

Jared

One Take Wonders pt. 10: When You Say Nothing At All

This song has been done by Allison Krauss, Kieth Whitley, Ronan Keating, and was written by Paul Overstreet. I grew up around it, and it seems to transcend genre in a way that not many songs can. Larry and I both love it and want to learn and perform it, so… here it is! We hope you enjoy.

 

Until next time,

Jared

One Take Wonders pt. 9: Somebody’s Cryin’

We are back, and I think we are doing a semi-admirable job of staying updated regularly!! We plan to keep it up right up until our performance at McNally Robinson Booksellers (Specifically Prairie Ink restaurant). We are learning a ton of new songs to keep us interested and vital for the future. And who knows, this renewed commitment to regular practice and playing may result in some new original material (or at least a reworking of old material)!

Chris Isaak is an amazing performer and writer, and we picked an upbeat song with some mopey, break-up-ey lyrics to cover for fun. Enjoy!

Until next time,

Jared

One Take Wonders pt. 8: Love Song

Hey all! In keeping with Larry and I booking a gig and entering a new era (so to speak), we decided to crank out a quick and very obviously unrehearsed One-Take Wonder! We will be updating weekly from here on out, likely on the weekends. Turns out basements aren’t awesome lighting/shooting conditions, but we will get back to our outdoors-y roots on the next one, promise!

This one is an original from a band called Third Day, who you may remember us covering on a previous One-Take Wonder, I’ve Always Loved You. I hope you enjoy the video and the song; this one takes me back to my misspent youth…

Until Next Time,

Jared
