WHAT'S NEW?

May 8, 2019

Wow, winning #ECMA2019 Jazz Recording of the Year was a huge surprise for us, and we are HUGELY  thankful! Big ups to all of the nominees and thank you to the ECMAs, our fans, families, and supporters. KITCHUSES is what it is because of our producer John MacLean, our audio engineer Stephen Lilly, our graphic designer Jud Haynes, and the magical place and people of Trunk Lane. Special shout out to our drummer Andrew McCarthy who played beautifully on the album, and Chuck Bucket who has been playing with us since Andrew moved to Toronto. And we wouldn't be where we are today without the perseverance of our manager, Mary Beth Waldram. Oh! And the funders, the funders, the funders: MusicNL, ArtsNL, the City of...

It's been a while since our last update (always is...) so we've got lots of news! In one month we're heading to Nozstock in the UK to play our first gig outside of the country. According to Efestivals "it is colourful, unique, crazy and trilling" and we are stoked to be going.  There's a ton of great artists, camping, and run by a super cool team of people - everything you could want in an outdoor festival. Big thanks to MusicNL and ArtsNL for the financial support to get us over there.

Before we head across the pond, we've got some great dates coming up including Canada Day at King George Park and July 8th at Cape St. Mary's.

In album news, we had planned to release our next alb...

We are nearly done recording our upcoming album, Kitchuses! It is an immense pleasure working with our producer John MacLean and our engineer Stephen Lilly - we all made a great team. While there was a huge pile of work that got done in the 10 days while John was here, we all left with smiling faces (and ears). We finally got some percussion overdubs done at Steve's house the other week and only have a little bit more to do before we can focus on the production side of things. Have a gander at some snaps from John's visit, our time at Trunk Lane Studio, and beyond.

Since John left, we had a couple of amazing shows: opening up for The Kubasonics for their album release (which coincided nicely with m...

Well, it's been a while since our last update. Things have been crazy! So let's start from where we left off.  Strap yourself in, this is gonna be a longer one. 

We had a great show at MUN D.F. Cook Recital Hall in November. For some reason when we are on tour, we play lots of acoustic shows, but here at home, it's less common. So it was great to not have to deal with mics and monitors and just play and move around and spin in a circle and all that fun stuff.

We didn't play ANY public shows in Dec or January. Myself and Andrew were away on a short baytour for some of Dec, and we all had Christmas gigs with other projects. Christmas is a great time in St. John's: lots of people come home for the holiday,...

To start, I've got to say that our first independent shows outside of St. John's on the island were both really successful. People came out and paid good money for new and original music that otherwise doesn't happen in their towns. Big thanks to everyone that came out to dance and sing with us! We've got to give a special shoutout to Jim at Swirsky's as well as Dean, Stevie, and the Stairs family at Citadel House for all their hospitality. Just after getting home, we had a ball playing for a delightful crowd of discerning dancers at the Ship for the Atlantic Dance Presenters Conference.

Speaking of balls, we're playing The Freaker's Ball tonight at Factory with St. John's legend Mar...

September 22, 2016

Every member of the band has been busy over the past couple of months, be it spending time with family overseas, traveling the province with tribute shows, or lining up those fall students and classroom gigs! But we're back in action and have a busy year ahead of us.

First thing's first: shows! Tomorrow night, as part the Wreckhouse Jazz and Blues Festival we are opening up for Toronto funk-meisters After Funk at Factory. Stay late and you may see us join forces. Jus sayin'. Next week we're heading out of town to play a show at Citadel House in Lewisporte followed by Swirsky's in Corner Brook. Then we're back home at The Ship to play for the Atlantic Dance Presenters conference. We've got more publ...

So, at the end of the month we will be embarking on our second tour. It's shorter, leaner, and more efficient then the 7000km trek from St. John's to Guelph and back we did in the fall. Flying in and out of Montreal - renting a van there too. On several shows we will be teaming up with our friends The Night Watch, The Steady Swagger, as well as The Boxcar Boys!

We will be updating this post with more information (and any additional gigs), as well as facebook event links and more. Tell your friends!

Here are the dates:

I've been away for a couple of weeks in beautiful British Columbia, but now I'm back and getting back on top of things (especially the website).

 

Just this weekend past, we played at the grand opening of St. John's newest music venue FACTORY along with my other band Hear/Say, with a great opening set by Joe Grizzly and the Wildlife. What a show it was! We had over 300 people singing and yelling along in St. John's only two floor music venue.

 

I also have to let you know that we are involved in CBC Searchlight, so please share, vote, and explore!

 

Also in a few days we are heading to Sydney, Nova Scotia to play a couple of showcases for ECMW 2016. We've got a packed schedule! To up our industry and show game, w...
