I’d been going through videos putting together some media to use for demos for upcoming opportunities, and one of the ones that I found myself grooving to was Superstition from last year. This was the Band’s performance from July 15, 2017 in the Parkette on Kent Street.
As 2017 has officially come to a close, the boys and I wanted to put a bit of a video together, to show that we sometimes do fun things. We only got together in February of 2017, and it just kinda stuck. So much later in the year (September) we decided to solidify it by hanging out more and taping some fun stuff that we had previously joked about.
Now we know that this is 15 minutes long, and we promise they will be shorter as they go, and more frequent… But here is our 2017 looking at the life of the band because we don’t just do music.
Just for the fun of it and because it’s been kicking on my laptop for a while, here’s a new tune that I was able to record last year for an anniversary. Not as upbeat as ‘Burrow’ but definitely a fun one to make as it uses real instruments alongside some digital ones.
Nathan Bottomley and the band will be playing at Lindsay’s Concerts in the Park on Wednesday Night August 2nd 7pm. Nathan Bottomley will be playing for 40 minutes with the loop pedal, before the band joins him for the next hour and 20 minutes!
There will be a variety of originals and covers throughout the evening so come on out and enjoy the event the township of Lindsay has put on!
“My fourth and final year at antics was amazing! It’s been incredible to play at Antics the last four years and to grow musically through it. I got to meet some talented people! Huge thanks to teachers for both the push to play, and the opportunity.”

Entering the last full week of February is cause to look back at the past week and see all that happened!
Over the past week I was able to play at St. Louis to commence in raising money for PTBO Live (Wed. Feb 15).
On Friday, I played in the Lobby of Market Hall as Missy Knott held her EP Release Party (Fri. Feb 17).
On Saturday I was given the privilege to do sound for the Anchors at the Armouries as they performed music for just more than 3 hours for a Valentine’s dance. It was amazing to hear them play (Sat. Feb 18).
Finally, Sunday was back to the usual as I was blessed to lead Westmount Bible Chapel in worship (Sun. Feb 19).
Be sure to keep and eye out for upcoming events as they are being added to the calendar! Also: TUNE INTO 91.9 BOB FM ON THURSDAY MORNING AT AROUND 9:45 AM. Bob FM (in the Lindsay area) is going to be playing my track “So Far Gone” in advance of Friday’s show at Weldon: featuring the Kents.
