Ottawa, if you are not busy on May 22, 2010.
You definitely need to check out Brandford’s The Racoon Wedding at Zaphods.
It will be there first time playing in Ottawa. So let’s give them a warm welcome.
The band consist of five members:
- Tim Ford – Guitar/Vocals
- Scott Willson – Organ/Vocals
- Ty Springall – Bass/Vocals
- Drew Ayerhart – Trumpet
- Jesse Shanks – Drums
The band released their debut album in 2009 called “Gather Gather Bones/Rattle Rattle Truth”.
Its filled with great eleven indie rocking tracks with some folkness energy.
This album should be in a western movie soundtrack.
The band got help from Casey Mecija of Ohbijou, Neil Haverty of Bruce Peninsula, Tim Fagan of Germans and Kat Burns of Forest City Lovers.
It is a fun album to listen to.
Tracks to listen:
- Basement Of The Attic
- Adelaide featuring Casey Mecija of Ohbijou
- The Paper Boy
“With both the Ford Plant and the Racoon Wedding, there is a belief in community.
All are welcome. The Racoon Wedding’s live show is a raucous, shambolic yet authoritative set where at any moment people will come up to sing, dance, pound or clap. All are welcome.
From country stomp to punk to Dylan-esque lyrical prowess, The Racoon Wedding play as loud or as soft as they please.
They play with confidence because they believe in their songs. They believe in their songs because they believe in Brantford.”
