The Sheepdogs recently played two sold-out shows at The Danforth Music Hall as part of their Canadian tour. The attention isn’t surprising considering how lively they are on stage.
Fit with a provincial Saskatchewan flag and an on-stage bar, the band started off with the single ‘I’m Gonna Be Myself’ off their newest album Future Nostalgia. Shamus Currie rocked the venue with a trombone solo during ‘Help Us All’. Throughout the night, guitarist Jimmy Bowskill played energetic solos that roused the crowd. During their set, the band even took a chance to have a drink from the crowd, courtesy of an on-stage bartender.
The Sheepdogs will always be relaxed yet exciting performers. Singer Ewan Currie looked the part of prairie comfort in his jean shirt and cowboy vest. In between performances, the band was sure to thank the crowd for their ongoing support and stating that they always love playing shows in Toronto. The show was ended off with well-known hits ‘Feeling Good’ and ‘How Late How Long’.
These Canadian boys are touring around for the next month before hitting up Europe. They don’t seem to be taking a break anytime soon so I am sure we will see them back in Toronto in the near future.
