Dance this Mess Around

Blue Rodeo At Tinhorn Creek

I am looking for your ideas for a band for our end of season concert next year (September 2012).  If you have been to our concerts before then I do not need to explain to you how seriously fun they can be.

Requirements for the band:

On Twitter I asked for some suggestions and received these:

Deadmau5
Broken Social Scene
City and Colour
The Tragically Hip
Great Big Sea
The Northern Pikes
Sloan
Barenaked Ladies
Metric
Kathleen Edwards
Jann Arden
Dust Rhinos
Rush 

Ideas for others? Votes? Or maybe you have an inside track to a band that seems unattainable? Drop me a comment!

    The New Pornographers, Tegan & Sara, Mother Mother, Dan Mangan, Black Mountain would be good possibilities! Or we put together a collection to get Arcade Fire!

  2. Brian Glaum says:

    While I’m at it, Tokyo Police Club, Big Sugar, Florence & the Machine, You Say Party, The Sheepdogs…

  3. Michelle says:

    How about Randy Bachman? I know his sound guy…

  4. Stacey says:

    How about The Grapes of Wrath?

  5. Jeannette says:

    Danceable and Canadian, fairly well known, and might not break the bank: The Sadies, The Dears, Wolf Parade. But I also like Brian’s: Tokyo Police Club, Black Mountain, Tegan & Sara. Broken Social Scene would draw a fairly large crowd, too.

    You know I have a soft spot for Sloan (ahem, would be the BEST season finale ever).

    Have fun choosing! I volunteer to be on the panel, and will even do research for you.

  6. Wow some good musical acts for consideration here. Has Bif Naked been suggested? Did I read on your twitter feed that this will be an anniversary year?

    • This is not an anniversary year. I believe 2013 is for our large concert at the end of the year. Probably would love to get Colin James to come back for that one. I will add Bif Naked to list, thanks!
