TOP 10 REASONS TO: "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes"
Come on guys: Put on those high heels for a worthy cause:

RHS Student, Pierce Calvin McAllister & Co-Writer Josh Parkinson wrote the song that proved to be a winning combination that propelled Riverview High's Safe Grad Video Entry to the top in a province wide competition. The song was performed by the pair as well and included Matt Jenkins on lead guitar.
The video was produced by the students of Riverview High as a their  video submission for a 2011 Safe Grad campaign developed by NB Liquor.

In total NB Liquor gave $20,000 to 18 New Brunswick high schools who qualified. The money was used to support their 2011 Safe Grad celebrations.

U2 on Magnetic Hill - from a Dream to Reality
Check out our random footage from the event:

Now a great memory, bringing U2 to Moncton obviously started as a deam for someone. Mud and rain aside, this world class event, by all accounts was a huge success. Even the likes of U2 made some new fans during the past couple of days. I know because I'm one of them. This song in particular hit home for me. So much so that I've put together a "dream theme" video using some random footage from the concert along with an acoustic cover of "One". I hope you enjoy!

The GTO Band, shown below at this year's Speed Sport East, will perform at Shediac's Centre for Speed July 6, 2011 as part of this year's "Back to the 50s" event.

Echoes or Elvis, Roy Orbison & Neil Diamond were heard by nearly 300 during the Old Time Rock n Roll night in Sussex, NB. Milton Jerome & the Classics, along with Earl McAllister and surprise guest and world Elvis champion Thane Dunn rekindled memories for an appreciative audience. The May 8th event was sponsored by the Bayview Credit Union (www.bayviewnb.com) with over $6000. raised for the Sussex Volunteer Fire Department. The funds will be used to purchase a "Fire Fighter Locator System".
During much of 2009, Milton Jerome (McAllister), focused his attention on his new Roy Orbison Tribute. The Atlantic Canadian tour opened on January 31st in a stellar performance at Moncton's Celebration Centre. The Event was in conjunction with the World Elvis Champion, Thane Dunn's, Elvis' Birthday Celebration. The capacity crowd of nearly two thousand was treated to strong vocals reminiscent of the Roy Orbison & Elvis eras and to authentic Elvis attire of the 1970s. Milton Jerome has been performing Oldies Rock n Roll throughout Atlantic Canada over the past ten years. With five seasons as the GTO Band's lead vocalist and more recently, front man for the OVERDRIVE Classic Rock Show; Milt's Roy Orbison Tribute has raised the bar, resulting in his best vocal performance to date. The tour continued on April 19th at the Imperial Theatre in Saint John NB and May 2nd, at the Savoy Theatre in Glace Bay NS. Later stops included Festival Theatre at Acadia University in Wolfville, NB. Milton's single, "Unconditionally" is receiving air play and is set to be released on Itunes and CD Baby.

The show was complete when it was announced that World Elvis Grand Champion (Collingwood 2009) Thane Dunn would be a last minute addition to the May 8th Rock n Roll night in Sussex. Thane graciously donated his time to assist in the purchase of life saving equipment for the Sussex Volunteer Fire Department. He was an immediate hit with the near capacity crowd and stayed around after the show to meet with those in attendance. For more on Thane Dunn, visit: www.thanedunn.net

Sproll's "Eyes Have Spoken"

Music Review by Lee Rambas
Sproll's song "Eyes Have Spoken"
First, this is a great song with a good beat and rhythm.
It is clear to see that the lead singer puts his heart into it. It's this kind of passion that makes the song more meaningful. Songs like this can really touch people and produce an emotional response. Vocalist Corey Hachey both connects with his audience and has them under his spell.
Now, for the video itself: It's artistic!
The setup of the band is very simple. There is no flash or glitter, but a black and white scheme. Except for the lead singer, the other band members (guitarist Neal MacLean, bassist Austin Farquhar, drummer Thom Cooke and keyboardist Mike Goyette) appear as silouhettes. This effect allows the mind to focus more on the instrument's sound and not the player identity.
The place, I guess a warehouse, also adds something. Each of the band members have as little equipment as possible. This attention to space allows the different instruments to be played in harmony and makes the sound that much richer. If I was there in the room with the band, I believe the music would fill up the place.
I have enjoyed watching the video and hope this review is appreciated.
