Andre Pettipas & The Giants with Fire Valley Fire- Saturday Sept 23rd

Sep 2017

Andre Pettipas and The Giants BIO:

Sing along anthem songs with ear worm hooks that will reel you in and release you into a musical wave of vintage grease coast rock n’ roll attitude combined with 90’s rock/pop sound.
Summer 2016 was a busy summer. The band toured the east coast of Canada in support of their debut album, “Stay Gold.” with multiple festival stops including Granville Green (Port Hawkesbury), Jubilee (New Glasgow), Music Mountain (Thorburn), Parlee Beach Music Festival (Shediac, New Brunswick), and an opening slot at the Meghan Trainor show in Port Hawkesbury to name a few. During this time they grabbed a number 1 single on the East Coast Countdown with their hit, “Long Way From Home” ft Ashley MacIsaac. The band were also finalists in the Casino Nova Scotia Artist In Residence competition. The remainder of 2016 consisted of gigging throughout the maritimes and writing new material.
The boys kicked off summer 2017 in overdrive placing first in a contest that had over 100 bands who applied, 18 semi-finalists, 3 finalists and 1 winner for the q104 Homegrown challenge. Prizes include $5000 in artist development (Groundswell Music), $5000 in recording (Coda Pop) and $5000 in musical equipment.

The band is currently in the pre production stage of their followup album which is being produced by Jon Landry (The Stanfields) at Coda Pop in Halifax.

Fire Valley Fire BIO:

Rock & roll is alive and well in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, thanks in no small part to Fire Valley Fire. Combining a heaping helping of classic rock influence with a side of 90’s alt rock, the band’s music sticks out against the sounds that dominate today’s airwaves.
With deep roots in the East Coast music scene, the members of Fire Valley Fire represent a plethora of beloved bands from the last few years, with Mike Morrison on drums (Sunfish, Rock Ranger), Morgan Currie on bass (The Tom Fun Orchestra, I Was A Spy), Dan Baldwin (Rock Ranger, The Grass) on guitar, and Justin Vallis (Bella Rebellion) on vocals.
