Since this was the first date to sell out on this tour, The Tea Party is coming back to Ottawa for round 2 on April 9th!
We can expect double the rock, double the passion, double the fun and of course, the iconic double neck guitar.
Originating in Windsor Ontario, the band was primarily active in the 1990s. After their hiatus they reformed back in 2011. They achieved success having their single “Coming Down Heaven” hit number 1 Canadian single in 1999. Members of the very multi-functional team include Jeff Martin as the lead vocals, Stuart Chatwood on bass guitar and Jeff Burrows on drums.
Having toured Canada over 20 times, they bring a well-seasoned performance to the stage. The current Black River Tour 2019 is almost half sold out along with many cities being visited twice! Nothing like support from your home country! With a mix of funky guitar-playing techniques, classic Canadian rock sounds and subtle comedic expressions, this is definitely a show to catch more than once!
The Proud Sons
The Proud Sons opened up the night. The five of them hail from Winnipeg and are best of friends. They like to think of their music as a new sounding old rock and roll. They made their first EP in the legendary Sun Studios and credit this as a way of giving them an identity. Some of the more well-known tracks are “Rolling Stone”, “Company” and “Fourth of July”
The Tea Party
With true “Moroccan roll” vibes, The Tea Party played a well-balanced show. They played songs like smash hit “Temptation” and “Heaven Coming Down” along with a few here and there like “Way Way Down”, “The Ocean at the End” and a Daniel Lanois cover of “The Messenger”.
The Tea Party has been around for a while and draws fans without effort. They put on one hell of a show and it’s no question why they are so well loved.
Looking forward to more new stuff from this group for sure.
