Episode #723

It’s a good thing that I’m so slow making a “Best of” list each year (when I actually do), because I’m constantly finding new music from years past and re-evaluating the choices. This week I discovered two albums worthy of a spot right near the top of the list, and spun some music from those as well as some more worthy contenders. We also had some great requests & suggestions from listeners.

Colleen Brown @ The Sunset Saloon, Feb. 23!

Tell the Band to Go Home & The Sunset Saloon proudly present:
Colleen Brown w/Elijah Abrams (of Major Love) at The Sunset Saloon
(house concert in Westwood)
Friday, February 23, 2018
8:00
Suggested donation $20-25 (all proceeds to the artists)

If you wish, bring a drink for yourself, and/or a snack to share, but we’ve always got plenty of all of those on hand!

All are welcome (bring the kids, friends, family, people off the street, whatever)! Our house is family friendly (we’ve got 3 kids, a trampoline, and plenty of room, so feel free to bring the family), easy-going, friendly, and open to all! If you don’t know us yet, come on down and make some new friends!

The Sunset Saloon is a house concert venue in Westwood (near the YMCA on Portage.) We’re open to all. Feel free to pass along the event info, bring friends, bring your kids (our kids will thank you), or just come by yourself and make some new friends! Admission is by donation, which goes directly to the artists.

Please RSVP for the address and more information!

Colleen (along with her constant companion/partner/accompanist Elijah Abrams) was a late, surprise addition to the “On a Western Swing” Tour, featuring Luther Wright & Rueben de Groot, which we were lucky enough to host at The Saloon in November of 2016. After that, Rueben & Colleen played a stellar show at The West End Cultural Centre on the way home. You may have caught Colleen at the 2017 Interstellar Rodeo backing up Sarah Slean or doing her own interlude set. If you’ve seen her, surely you adore her.

If you haven’t had the pleasure, GET ON IT NOW! 2018 is poised to be a BIG year. Later this year, Colleen and Eli will release an eagerly anticipated album under the name Major Love, which is a band made up of hot indie pop/rock trio Scenic Route to Alaska, up-and-coming singer/songwriter Jesse Northey of Jesse & The Dandelions, and in-demand pedal steel mater/producer Aaron Goldstein. There’s some MAJOR attention circling Major Love, with a major release and a major tour later this year.

At this intimate duo show, we’ll surely hear a bunch of songs off of that record, as well as songs from Colleen’s previous releases, which include 4 full length albums and 2 EPs, including last year’s stellar Seasons are Circling, which included one of the most gorgeous songs of the year, I Can’t Wrap My Heart Around It.

Maybe you remember Colleen’s big breakthrough single, Love You Baby, which still gets a lot of play on CBC Radio and other outlets.

If you’re lucky, your life has been blessed by this song already!:

Let’s not forget about Elijah Abrams! Besides being an in-demand multi-instrumentalist, known for backing up Colleen, Oh Susanna, Rocket Surgery, and many others, Eli grew up on stage alongside his cousins The Abrams Brothers. Together, they toured the world, were the youngest Canadians to ever play The Grand Ol’ Opry, and won a bunch of awards. The guy’s no slouch.

Please join us for what’s sure to be a wonderful night of music! Your support helps keep musicians on the road and events like these happening!

And don’t forget, we’ve also got another exciting event in February:

Oh Susanna

February 4, 7:30 pm @ The Sunset Saloon
Event info: http://tellthebandtogohome.com/2017/12/12/oh-susanna-sunset-saloon-feb-4/

February 5, 7:30 pm @ The StuDome (RSVP: stureid@shaw.ca)
Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1536869346409498/

And speaking of house concerts!


Please join the new Winnipeg House Concerts Facebook Group!
https://www.facebook.com/groups/554601468209276/
If you know anyone else who hosts or might want to attend house concerts in Winnipeg, we’d love to get to know them!

Thanks for reading! We welcome your feedback, and we’d sure love to know if you can make it out to one of these shows!

Feel free to fill out the contact form below if you have any questions or if you want to reserve your seat (your details aren’t public, just emailed directly to me.)

All New TTBTGH/Sunset Saloon Email Lists!

At long last, we’re switching to a much more sensible, user-friendly email list for both Tell the Band to Go Home and The Sunset Saloon!

If you want to continue receiving emails from me, or want to get on board and see what you’ve been missing out on, fill out the form below. We hardly ever email you, but when we do, it’s because there’s something that you should know. The list will never, ever be used for anything other than emailing you info about the topics that you choose.

Joining and unsubscribing are easy and can be done without any kind of help or interference from me. Of course, if you need help with either or just want to say hello, you can still drop me a line, but feel free to come and go from the list as you please!

NOTE: these are emails, not posts to this site that you’ll be receiving. As always, if you want to know when something new appears on this site, you can fill in the form right near the bottom of the column to your left!

You can choose to just get emails about one of three topics. If we’ve got a message that suits everyone, it’ll go to the full list, but occasionally emails are just about one topic or another, so choose whether you want specific topics or the whole meal deal.

Thanks for joining/remaining!

Subscribe to the ALL NEW Email List(s)!
