Vintage

Got You Covered
by Jaclyn Killins

Vintage is possibly the most versatile cover band on the Island. Donnie Bowers and Tim MacPherson team up as Vintage 2.0, described on their website as “a duke-it-out, down-and-dirty, grass-roots acoustic duo.” When they are in need of a bigger sound they call in bassist Chris Buote and drummer Nat Lamoureux to fill out the sound and morph into the full-blow roc

Got You Covered

by Jaclyn Killins

St. Patrick’s day came early at The Wave and for entertainment on March 14 they called in the rock and roll services of Big City. The band, formed six years ago, now consists of Joey Kitson on lead vocals, M.J. Mullin on guitar, Leigh Pursey on bass, with Nat Lamoureux and Shane Coady sharing drumming duties.

Before the show someone clued me in that Kitson

With this column Jaclyn begins her latest assignment—covering the Island’s popular cover bands. True weekend warriors, cover bands enterain thousands of people at club dates and dances every week, year-in year-out. Want to hear something you know? These bands know how to play it!

PEI Music Awards

by Jaclyn Killins

As a girl from Ontario I feel like I’m crashing a party when I get to experience the intimate yet endless talent of the music scene on PEI, so I was feeling giddy when I scored tickets to the PEI Music Awards.

A devout CBC listener, I wasn’t familiar with host Kerri Wynne MacLeod before the show, now I feel I may know too much about her. MacLeod started the candid h

A 
Different Drummer
by Jaclyn Killins

Some of Moe Hashie’s most euphoric moments have taken place while sitting on his drum stool. The first time he got this feeling was when he was at a gig at the legion when he was 16 years old. “I’m always trying to reach that euphoria, I strive for it,” he said.

Moe explains that this feeling of elation stems from an intangible reciprocation between band mates.

A 
Different Drummer
by Jaclyn Killins

Powerhouse rock band Battery Point has one of the most entertaining drummers on the Island in Brady MacDonald. Stick tricks and talent aside, it's the fire with which the 25 year old hits the drums that makes him mesmerizing.

When he plays he is terrifying. With eyes alight and teeth clenched the usually sweet, fun loving Brady turns into a demon on the drums.

A Different Drummer
by Jaclyn Killins

Before a recent show in Peterborough, Ontario the Paper Lions mulled about their tour van. Drummer David, clad in red plaid, mustachioed with blue eyes peeking from long bangs, produced a cooler full of PEI oysters and started shucking, handing out oysters to locals and friends alike.

No matter their success, the Paper Lions remember where they come from. “My

Abegweit Chimes Perform in Charlottetown and Summerside

by Jaclyn Killins

Before I sat in at an Abegweit Chimes practice I thought a barbershop chorus was made up of robust men in suits and saddle shoes. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Thriving on Prince Edward Island is an award-winning a capella chorus made up of 36 vibrant and talented women of all ages.

The Abegweit Chimes sing four-part harmonies

Nat Lamoureux


A Different Drummer
by Jaclyn Killins

When the bell rings for lunch, most elementary school kids gobble down their food and head to the playground. Not Nathaniel Lamoureux. Lunchtime was his chance to hit up the music room and have the drum kit all to himself. When Christmas holidays came, the teachers let Nat take the kit home.

At 16 he saved up and bought his own kit. On Friday nights he couldn’t

Acorn Rangers


Talking Bands

by Jaclyn Killins

During a recent Acorn Rangers show at Hunter’s Ale House the keyboard player of Loudlove, Emile Leitch, who was seriously wounded in a car accident this summer, sat in for a song. Jaws dropped and eyes bugged out around the bar as they laid out a steaming funky jam. In the middle of it all, Leitch started bleeding from the head. They tried to slow down for him but t

Danny Miles


A Different Drummer

by Jaclyn Killins

The Meds’ drummer Danny Miles is quiet and relaxed when he drums. His kit is modest and his actions subtle. His posture is impeccable and he looks out from his drums with a relaxed interest.

He didn’t always play this way. “I used to be the exact opposite. The better I’ve gotten the less I do.” It was drummer Shawn Doiron who kindly pointed out how much Danny was fla

by Jaclyn Killins

The waivers are signed and Charlottetown all-ages music mainstay New Royalty are about to step out of church basements and friend’s living rooms and into the bar scene with their danceable indie fun.

The bounty of a summer of non-stop practicing and recording is their first EP, Sleepover, recorded off the floor with John Matthews. After spending so much time together,
