Its been an amazingly busy few months for us!

We teamed up with our fantastic new U.K. friends The Skints and Gecko and toured England, Scotland, Wales....the works. Lots of sold out shows and enthusiastic crowds. We can't wait to go back and we hope to have the opportunity to tour with the Skints in Canada and show them some of the love they showed us! Also, some great videos of Davers surfing on roadcases are circulating somewhere on the internets!

Then it was off to Europe for a show in France and 5 magnificent days off. We all went on adventures too numerous to detail but some of the notable spots visited were the Note Dame, The Louvre, The Eiffel tower and Jim Morrison's grave!

The Netherlands was just fantastic! On a day off from tour in Eutrecht we rented a paddle boat and paddled down the canals through the city sipping drinks in the sunlight....sooooo wicked!

Germany was another high point of the tour where we saw audience enthusiasm that rivals some of the best shows we've played. The crowds chanted for encore after encore and in one case even started an impromptu post-show jam with us in the parking lot.

After that it was off to Ontario to play the island stage of a festival in Well and a sold-out Rivoli in T.O. with some of our favorite people in the world Jon and Roy (featuring our original bass player Louie!!!).

Then off to Keloha which was a great welcome home to B.C. for us as we hooked up with our great friends the Boom Booms, the Matinee and quite a few familiar faces from the Peak Performance Project, just to name a few!

Great things around the corner with big dates coming up in some of our favorite spots close to home including to Tofino, Whistler, the Summer Meltdown festival to name a few. Check the calendar at web link and hopefully well see you at a gig soon!
