It’s incredible how fast the time flies on the road. Certainly there have been days with 15+ hours of driving, yet it feels like only yesterday we were standing proud on our bus in front of a gigantic T-Rex in Drumheller, AB. In fact, since then we have performed in Saskatoon, five cities in Ontario and even managed to invade Montreal, QC.
Throughout our trek one thing has proven to be very clear: when you want something, the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it. The hospitality that we have encountered on our journey has been pleasantly overwhelming.
It seems in every place we’ve stopped others have went out of their way to help us in whatever way they could – whether it’s a place to stay, a meal, information and advice, or even simple encouragement and well-wishes. As the saying goes, haters gon’ hate. But we haven’t experienced anything but the opposite. Lovers gon’ love?
Being able to perform our music to willing ears in various cities is all we could ask for. But this tour has offered much more. Exploring the beautiful environments of Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, etc. has been icing on top of the cake. Actually, it’s been better than that – cake icing is gross!
Oh, and we’ve partied. What do you think we are? Saints? OK, well one of us is – but only in name, my friends!
Believe me, there have been some fun nights – seeing the Rennehan clan in Sudbury, getting raucous at Canadian Music Week in Toronto, chilling with homies and celebrating birthdays in Montreal, wilding with new friends in Ottawa… Don’t you worry, good times have been had!
Saturday night was our final show in Winnipeg, and what a show it was! It was the best ending to the Best of Everything Tour we could have asked for, with an enthusiastic crowd and an excellent opening act: Paisley. Look out for these guys.
It’s bittersweet, knowing that this is coming to an end. All the same, it will be nice to return home to family and friends.
Once again, a big thank you to everyone who supported us throughout this tour. The biggest shout out goes to Kim Anderson, who was willing to put up with our shit for over two weeks while she documented all the little details. Good on ya, Kimmy!
Until the next journey!
