The Trews – Casino NB – 12/15/16

Posted: 18th December 2016 by refrainmusic in Concerts

As a mass of arctic air ominously bears down on the area and plunging us into sub -30C temps is not enough to stop us from checking out one of the favorite Canadian rockers of the last decade or so. The Trews are always a good show and tonight at Casino NB they will surely keep our heart rate up and keep the temerature inside high with their always lively show.

The Trews – Time Capsule

The Nova Scotia rockers, The Trews are looking in two directions, both backward and forwards on their new release Time Capsule, and roll into Casino NB as part of a National tour to celebrate the release of their latest offering.
Resistant to “just” doing a greatest hits album as their label wanted, Time Capsule meshes 16 of the band’s biggest hits including “Not Ready To Go,” “So She’s Leaving” and “Highway Of Heroes,” combined with four brand new recordings: “Lotta Work/Little Love,” “Sing Your Heart Out,” “Chinese Kites,” and “Beautiful & Tragic.”

The fact that it was a seated show kept puzzling frontman Colin MacDonald as he pointed out by saying “welcome to the conference”, it’s a rock show he pointed out, get up and move! People wanted to move and the Trews are a band that can get you moving with songs like ‘The Power of Positive Drinking’ and ‘Poor Ol Broken Hearted Me’. Interactive, rocking and reflective the band told stories about the song called ’65 Roses” a tribute to kids battling Cystic Fibrosis done acoustically between brothers Colin and John Angus.

As always John-Angus’s guitar was a highlight of the show, combined with the vocals of brother Colin, the brothers and their fellow band mates always entertain in lively manner and tonight was no exception.

Another great Trews show of 16 songs followed up by a four song encore had the crowd delighted at the end and humming out into the frigid December night a little warmer than when they came in. Thanks to the Trews, Casino NB, and PPRL for another great night of entertainment!
