CMW Bands I’ve Had A Beer With

Here's where I'll be sipping beers during Canadian Music Week

When I started this list of CMW bands I’ve had a beer with, I thought there might about a dozen bands listed. Turns out I drink a wee bit more than I thought I did. I am not a groupie but I have been dating a musician (Noel Johnson) for the last 6 years so I go to a lot of shows. I have also been in radio for 10 years and love music so this is kind of my life.

CMW is awesome but there are sooo many bands and sooo little time so I put a star next to the shows I am actually going to if you would like to join me for a beer. Cheers! ​

I first met Donovan Woods at a Robyn Dell’Unto show so it is fitting that they are both playing the same night. Friday at The Vault @ One King West. *

 
I have had “Put on Cologne” by Donovan Woods on repeat for months. Love it! Friday at The Vault @ One King West. *

 
ANDEE – Friday at Revival. She did a song for the Sochi Olympics this year.
