The Trews Acoustic Trio ~ Peterborough, ON

October 17 @ 7:00 pm

The achievements of rock ‘n’ roll heavyweights, The Trews, are many and mighty, highlighted by multiple radio hits, drawn from seven critically acclaimed studio albums plus several EPs, a pair of live records, and a retrospective. Comprised of lead vocalist/guitarist Colin MacDonald, lead guitarist John-Angus MacDonald, bassist Jack Syperek, drummer Chris Gormley, and keyboardist Jeff Heisholt, The Trews have been one of Canada’s most successful rock bands of the past decade, earning 19 Top 10 Rock radio singles (including two #1’s) and multiple Gold & Platinum certified albums. The band has also received multiple East Coast Music Awards, a CIMA Road Gold Award, an Independent Music Award (US) in 2009 for Best Rock / Metal Song, and numerous JUNO Award nominations.

The Trews have played thousands of shows worldwide, on their own as well as supporting the Rolling Stones, KISS, Robert Plant, Guns ‘n Roses, Aerosmith, Weezer, Mumford & Sons, Bruce Springsteen, Switchfoot and more. The Trews introduced their magnetic and massive sound on their 2003 full-length debut album, House Of Ill Fame. Drawing on rock, pop, punk, and metal, the band took over Canadian Radio with “Not Ready to Go”. Twenty years and a Canadian Platinum certification later, the songs still pack their original punch. Now, the album that kickstarted their incredible career will be re-released as a 20th Anniversary Limited Edition Box Set on November 24th, 2023.
