The 6 friends got together and started one of the first country bluegrass electric bands in the country. It was the beginnings of all of their music careers. J-Rod and Jaxon and Romi sang sweet harmonies and Romi and Twisty and Matt fueled it with a driving rhythm section. Saywell dirtied the whole band up with his electric grinding sounds and Jaxon held it to the roots by rolling the banjo throughout it all.
It was a time and place in Winnipeg. And if you were there, you remember the nights at The Horseshoe and the late night Fred Eaglesmith and Steve Earle jams.
With a mixture of originals and covers, Off The Wagon returns for one special night to Times Change(d) High and Lonesome Club to bring back the magic that started it all.
With a special opening set by Richard Inman!
