Some shots from Aug 24 show in Almonte (Old Town Hall). We will post a video from the live show. a BIG thanks to all the fans who came out (from all over) to see us… it really means a lot to us, and you guys were LOUD!!!!
So, at 9, 10 and 12, we raised over $150,000 playing music in the streets and donated it to Haiti. Then, we decided to come here to film the lives of kids and share it in classrooms, using rock and roll. We’ve been here 5 days and today we went to Kenscoff, back into the back of the truck for another drive through Haiti…
We visited Our Little Brothers and Sisters Orphanage
and played a show…
After the show, we ate and slept with the orphans, to get an idea of what life is like for them.
The CDs finally arrived and we held our CD Release Party with our friends… you. Lots of people stopped by to party and pick up CDs, a T-shirt, or Hat. Visit us at Booth Street by the Claridge Homes sales office and the Bear 106.9 trucks.
10% of everything that night will go to the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa.
Here are a few pics…
When we finished playing “ONE” everyone released their balloons with us and shared in a magic moment.
and lots more photos on our Facebook page click here…
Here is the video for the song “ONE”… (please SHARE generously):

On Sunday afternoon, we skated through Hockeyville Navan.
Liam and Jan towed Quinn on our mobile puck and cartoon hockey net. Things got a little crazy, but we love hockey and we love rockin’ an arena with our music, so the two seem to go together!
What do you think?
