So it's January 2014 and we just played our first gig of the new year, Robbie Burns Night with the Mudmen at McCabe's in Kitchener. Thought I would stop by the old website and do a little sprucing up. Got here to our blog and realised I hadn't made a single blog entry for all of 2013, holy shamrocks and shillelaghs!!! That's when I realised what a busy year we had and how 2013 just sorta came and went in a blur.
So let's take a look back and see what all happened, shall we? I think we shall... Well we started 2013 off the same as this year with a concert for Robbie Burns on January 25th featuring the Mudmen. We recorded our set for release as a DVD of Shananigans live in concert and we produced our first CD featuring our new line up. The CD was ready just in time for the busy March St. Paddy's day season and along with some freshly printed t-shirts we set out on a world win tour of Ontario that started in Kitchener and ended in Embro.
Some of the highlights a;long the way that come to mind would be an awesome weekend with the Tall Ships at Blue Mountain in Collingwood and the International Plowing Match in Mitchell, Ontario. There were many firsts in 2013 like playing at the Bull and Barrel in Barrie several times and they like us so much we are there again this year March 8th and May 3rd 2014.
Well there is lots of stories to tell but I have to go now, getting ready for our next tour, please check out one of our shows and hopefully we will come to a concert venue or festival near you very soon!
