Lads of the Canyon

On to The Jason Kent Band. As mentioned before the combo posts a lineup of veterans, Kent himself has been through Soft Canyon, Sonny Best Band and Bodega. Kent and Co. produce a sound that crosses Beatle-ific psych (like Rainbow Ffolly, say) and Neil Young (to whom I see he's been oft-compared). And like so many Canuck country outfits, he's got a song about (and called) California.

Kent takes a turn at the keys ... I think that must be his favourite shirt, because as far as I can tell he's been wearing it at every show I've seen him at.

Last time I saw Phil Burns, at left, he had a bit more hair.

Chris Wise is the band's newish drummer, and seems like a very lively fellow.

Rhythm section action! With James Watkins on bass.

Twisting action!

Faceoff action!

Butt-bumping action!

And so on!

That was pretty snazzy; pity the audience was so tiny. He's off to Britain and Bordeau for a few October gigs.
