Sugar Beach Sessions

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.

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

Catfish and the Bottlemen at 102.1 The Edge – Sugar Beach Sessions

We love a last-minute addition to the schedule and that’s just what we got from The Edge yesterday. Catfish and the Bottlemen would be doing a Sugar Beach Session and we were thrilled to be able to make it.
Catfish and the Bottlemen The Edge Sugar Beach SessionRyan Evan McCann, known to fans as “Van”, founded Catfish and the Bottlemen in 2007. Formed in Llandudno, Wales they started out promoting themselves by playing in parking lots after other bands’ shows. Their debut album, The Balcony, was released in 2007 and reached number 10 on the UK Albums chart. “Bondy”, Johnny Bond, who accompanied Van today, joined the band in 2014.
Catfish and the Bottlemen The Edge Sugar Beach SessionThey’re out to support their new album The Ride and they’ve got a bunch of US dates coming up but they’ll be back in Toronto on October 14th at the Danforth Music Hall. Then the band heads home to the UK and after that on to Australia. Check out tour dates here!

I thought it was awesome that once they finished up their set the boys headed outside to chat with fans. Nice!

The Trews at 102.1 The Edge – Sugar Beach Sessions

Milking the last drops out of summer I headed to Sugar Beach today for an afternoon Sugar Beach Session at The Edge featuring The Trews. It was a gorgeous afternoon and what could make it better, live music of course?

The Toronto-based band, originally out of Antigonish, Nova Scotia have been putting out records for almost 20 years and in that time they’ve had some amazing success . They’ve got a brand new album coming September 9th and it’s called Time Capsule. It’s going to be a compilation album with their best -known songs, some fan favourites, deep cuts and four brand new tracks.
The Trews - Sugar Beach Session - The EdgeThe Trews are on tour and will be hitting The CNE Saturday, September 3rd and opening up for them will be one of our favourites, The Lazys. We’ll be sitting down with both The Trews and The Lazys on Saturday so stay tuned for those interviews. We hope to see you there, but if you can’t make it, head back here for all the photos, answers, video and who knows what else!

Thanks to The Edge for having us, we really like this venue!

July Talk at The Edge – Sugar Beach Sessions

It was supposed to be quick. A four song, Sugar Beach Session at 102.1 The Edge with Canadian Alt-Rock band July Talk. It was anything but short.

They started out their set with Push + Pull and ended it with Paper Girl. When they got to Paper Girl  Leah Fay decided she didn’t want to sing her part so she pulled three audience members out of the crowd to do her part. While they killed it, she wandered the crowd, shaking hands and saying hello to fans. This is where things would normally wrap up but instead, each band member chose an audience member to pick their favourite. Okay, Leah may have decided she wanted to sing Uninvited, nobody objected. So we ended up with nine songs in all, a very nice set.July Talk - The Edge - Sugar Beach SessionsJuly Talk has been enjoying some amazing success and they stopped by The Edge as a way to say goodbye to their Toronto fans before heading out on the road. They’ll be making stops in the US, hopping back to Canada’s West Coast for a bit and then on to the UK, Germany, The Netherlands and then back to the US before doing some Ontario dates near the end of October followed by more American dates. Looks like they might make it home for Christmas. July Talk - The Edge - Sugar Beach SessionsIf you haven’t had a chance to see this band yet, you should put them on your must see list. Memorable voices, amazing energy, funky bass lines, intense drums, guitar playing that made me catch my breath, added to that fun interaction and never a dull moment.

The October shows at Toronto’s Danforth Music Hall are both sold out, but the band assured us today there would be a way to see them. Fingers crossed. Keep an eye on The Edge’s YouTube Channel for video, they’ve got a link for Sugar Beach Sessions, it’s coming soon. *EDIT* videos are up! Check this link for the videos.

July Talk, go see this band!
