The Trews: Still sparkle and shine

Not ready to go.

CALGARY – Back in 2005, The Trews were playing where they ought to be — stadiums. They were opening for Robert Plant on his Mighty ReArranger tour and from the second their then drummer Sean Dalton started banging on his cowbell everyone in the Dome knew they were in for a good time. If we were living in an era when rock was the norm instead of a niche market they would have been headlining, getting everyone to sing along on straight-ahead rockers like “I’m So Tired of Waiting” and “Poor Old Broken Hearted Me.”  

At the time, they reminded one of the fictional band Stillwater from Almost Famous. Just finding their feet, but definitely on their way to super stardom. Success came, but in a very low-key Canadian way. There were gold records, Grey Cup halftime shows and Juno nominations, but for some reason the moniker of “household name” has thus far eluded them. Never mind, The MacDonald brothers (Colin on vocals and John-Angus on lead guitar) continue to make Antigonish proud by hitting the road and spreading the hard-rock gospel cross-country. The fact that you are more likely to see them on at the Coke Stage or a club these days doesn’t dampen their enthusiasm in the least. Nor should it dampen yours.

 

The Trews perform Jan18 at Gold Horse Casino (Lloydminster), , Jan. 31 at Starlite Room (Edmonton), Feb1 at The Palace (Calgary) and Feb. 4 at Bo’s Bar & Grill (Red Deer).
