Hollerado at 102.1 The Edge – Sugar Beach Sessions

What’s the best thing to brighten up a grey, gloomy day? Why watching Hollerado doing a 102.1 The Edge’s Sugar Beach Session of course! There’s nothing like live music to cheer up a rainy day.Hollerado - Adam Ricard - Sugar Beach SessionEdge DJ Adam, took no time in letting us know that the new Hollerado record, Born Yesterday, comes out next week. He asked the guys if they felt nervous leading up to releasing a record and if that feeling gets better when the record comes out, or does the nervousness go away when they finish the album. Menno answered that the nervousness left when they finished it. He said, “We didn’t finish it until we knew it was awesome…  and we’re really happy with it”.

The guys were quick to let everyone know that a) there would be missing work/school notes for anyone who needed them and b) there would be pizza when the set was over. Could this day get any better?Hollerado will be hitting the road to promote Born Yesterday starting April 19th here in Toronto at Canadian Music Week’s James Beam Indies at The Phoenix. They’ll finish up in Regina on June 17th. You can get your tickets here: http://www.bandsintown.com/Hollerado.

This April marks the 10-year milestone for the band and with no line-up changes that’s a pretty big deal. They were joined for the Sugar Beach Session by Everett of Everett Bird who will be supporting Hollerado on this tour.

It was a quick set and while people may have been requesting old favourites we got all new songs. The set was energetic and fun, it’s classic Hollerado with fresh new songs. When the guys finished up they took the time to chat, snap photos and, of course, share in some pizza!

You can check out the title track below. If that’s not enough for you, you can check out the full performance on The Edge’s Facebook page via a Facebook Live Post.

And you can Pre-Order the new album Born Yesterday here: https://dubleplus.com/collections/hollerado/products/hollerado?variant=36386445582

This is the part where Nixon calls the pizza delivery guy back.

10 Performer Predictions for WayHome 2016!

The WayHome Music & Arts Festival is still a few months away… but we’re already getting anxious to find out who’s going to playing on the stages at Burl’s Creek this July.

Joshuan WayHome Art and Music Festival-9555And since we haven’t had a performer announcement yet, we figured it was time to make some guesses/predictions of our own!

We know that there’s a strong connection to Bonnaroo through Ashley Capps, so we’ve looked at the recently released list of performers that will hit Manchester, Tennessee and added some Canadian content, because we also know that Republic Live has a reputation for supporting home grown talent.

We have no idea if any or all of these 10 artists will be coming to Canada to play for us July 22, 23, 24… but we wouldn’t complain if we were right.

Leave a comment here or on Facebook to tell us who you think will be at WayHome 2016!

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

If there’s going to be a hip-hop headliner at WayHome in 2016 it just might be Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Last year we had Kendrick, and he owned the stage… in 2016 we would not be surprised to see Macklemore pull Bonnaroo and WayHome double duty!

Death Cab for Cutie

There never seems to be a lack of enthusiasm for Death Cab shows, and adding them to the WayHome lineup would be a clear indication that the team wants to give festival goers something to write home about.

Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats

Hot as a pistol with Son Of A Bitch, Nathaniel Rateliff would be a great afternoon act on a side stage, much like Vance Joy was in 2015. Here’s hoping we’re right about that one, because the single is a sing along that we don’t wanna miss.

The Katherines

Some Canadian home grown from BC, these girls are making a name for themselves with a new single and video… there’s also a chance they hit CMW in Toronto this spring which would be a nice launch pad for a WayHome set.

Hollerado

If we’re talking about Canadian acts, let’s just go ahead and add Hollerado. As far as we can see they aren’t busy the weekend of July 22-24, so why wouldn’t they fit on a stage at Burl’s Creek?

Elle King

Elle King is on a lot of “ones to watch” lists for 2016, and it wouldn’t bother us to watch her live and in person this summer. Get ready to sing along to Ex’s and Oh’s!

The Arkells

Another Canadian mainstay… the boys from Hamilton love to perform, and they a bevy of fans in Ontario – we can imagine them up on stage getting the crowd fired up for a headliner after the sun goes down.

Halsey

Young, but becoming a known commodity, Halsey looks to have a big year in 2016… and getting on stage at a festival with 40,000 people in attendance would be a pretty significant step in accomplishing that!

Father John Misty

There’s no shortage of love for what Father John Misty does and the music he makes. Already on the list for Bonnaroo, he could be another double duty performer at WayHome 2016.

Alessia Cara

With a 2015 debut album (Know-It-All), this Brampton native wouldn’t have far to travel to hit WayHome, and the local area crowd could be exactly what she’s looking for in the middle of the hottest time of year.

Burlington’s Sound of Music Festival – Andrew Hyatt, Tebey, Young Empires and Hollerado

Saturday June 20th

This year Burlington’s Sound of Music Festival turned 36! This was our first time attending the festival but, it won’t be the last. The nine day schedule kicked off on June 13th with the only paid concert, which helps to supplement the sponsors (including KX94.7 and Indie88) and suppliers. The line up included Our Lady Peace, Collective Soul, Finger Eleven, Current Swell, Scott Helman, with Weezer as the headliner! All other music, all weekend long is free!

On Saturday our first stop was Andrew Hyatt at the OLG Stage. This Sudbury raised singer/songwriter put on a great performance and had the crowd singing and dancing along to his hit single “Love Drunk” and more.

On stage next was Burlington’s own Tebey. The 2012 winner of Boots and Hearts Emerging Artist competition, Tebey has taken country music by storm. It had been thirteen years since he left Burlington and yesterday he was welcomed back with open arms. The hometown star shone on stage.

We quickly headed to the Burlington Hyundai Stage to catch Young Empires. We missed our pit access but got some interesting shots from the crowd. Loved their energy and enthusiasm. They played all of our favourites. They were fun and while BSOMF was the last stop on their tour, we hope to see them again soon.

It couldn’t have been any more perfect. They played everyone’s favourite songs, sounded amazing, had great lighting and the audience responded with bouncing, dancing, cheering, singing and crowd surfing. Perfect!BSOMF Hollerado Sound of Music Festival

BSOMF Hollerado Sound of Music Festival-The festival boasts attendance numbers of 200,000 and they engage the community through music and volunteerism. Let’s not forget this event couldn’t happen without the great crew of volunteers and sponsors. The atmosphere is busy, fun and there’s live music, everywhere.

There’s still time to check out the last day of this festival. Sunday’s headliners include Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Say Yes, The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer, and Loverboy.
