View Full Version : Showing Local Bands How It's Done?

Did anyone happen to catch a local bar owner being profiled on MCTV last week. Apparently he was quoted as saying that they bring in out of town bands to show local bands how it's done?

If it's true that's not a very cool thing to say.

who said it?

Somebody who is obviously neither smart or a musician.

What bars in town get out of town acts (as well as local)?
1) Rockstar - Martin/Roman (Wouldn't say it)
2) Foggies - Taryn (As a former 'local' singer she more than likely wouldn't)
3) Canadian? (Joe) Maybe, I can see some of them saying it ...but they do have a lot of local bands playing there and a local band is currently their 'bread-winner' so I'll vote against that.
4) Loplops?!? - Wouldn't know.
5) Madison's?!? - Hmm ...

For Madison's and Loplops they have too much of a friendship with some local musicians ... I just can't see it being said but I've only played those places a handful of times and don't know those people as well as the others.

I say this is all hearsay until someone actually posts: "Yes, I heard it with my own two ears ... it was <insert bar owner here>."

Besides, Sault musicians know we have a high talent pool here. ;)

I saw it, it was either Bottoms Up or Loplops, can't exactly remember which of the two. Also saw a clip of it on Sootoday, you can try searching it...
