‘Live Music Is Better!’ – JT has been shouting this from the stage at every show on the summer tour so far, and every audience has enthusiastically agreed. Here I’ll offer a quick re-cap of our shows so far.
June 18: Markham Village Music Festival: Taking Flight & Volume Wars
The first show of our summer tour was in Markham, Ontario. We’d originally planned to perform as a smaller configuration but figured what the heck – it’s local, and what’s more fun than the full 8 piece band? Nothing, that’s what. We all managed to squeeze our cars in to the lot directly behind the stage, and we played as the sun set. The stage was small, but we’ve definitely played on smaller. There was another stage set-up no more than 100ft away with a band going full tilt. We decided to save ‘Carry Me Home’ until after they were done – we soldiered through but it was a little weird having that much volume so close!
