We're playing Otalith!

It's true, we're more about the private parties and weddings but this year we've been asked to play a set at Ucluelet's wonderful Otalith festival! So On the Saturday afternoon you'll be able to catch Geoff and Tara (with a little help from their friends) playing song from his 2016 Vancouver Island Music Awards nominated album "Women and Losin''
It's kinda fuzzy but Geoff's name is down on the bottom right along with some other great local talent
If you want to practice singing along to the tunes you can stream them here:


Of course life goes on with weddings, fun parties and other gigs including jam nights. Monday nights at The Tofino Legion and Wednesday nights at The Eagle's Nest in Ucluelet come jam out some tunes with a bunch of local talent.
See you around, friends

Full band May 27th at ANAF Hall in Ucluelet

Coming up on May 27 we're playing a rare public show at the ANAF in Ucluelet.
We don't break the full band out for "bar gigs" very often but thought it would be a blast to rock out for our friends before we disappear into a summer of weddings and other private event bookings. Hope you can make it!

Hippy New Year from Ballistic Piggyland

Happy New Year everyone. We spent New Year's Eve playing for the good folks at The Wickaninnish Inn. Thanks to Charles and the team for having us, we're really looking forward to the weddings we have booked there this summer it sounds like we'll be back there from NYE 2018!


Speaking of "being back" Tofino's Monday night jam returns on Monday January 9th but is moving to The Tofino Legion while Jack's is closed for renovations. If it goes off at the new venue we may keep it there so come on out and support!
We also had a great time Christmas Eve singing for the folks at Middle Beach Lodge, we had one-time Glass Tiger backup vocalist Miranda Moore to join us so she's now an honorary Pig!

With that we get back into the groove of our musical life on the coast; Tara and Geoff have a duo performance at Jamie's in Tofino on the 10th and Geoff (and guests?) start regular Wednesday afternoons at Long Beach Lodge on January 11th. Every other Thursday starting January 19th Geoff will be playing at Black Rock Resort in Ucluelet, on the Thursdays he's not there other great local and Island talent will be playing.

So the holiday break was short, and that's just fine with us! Here's to rockin' 2017 and beyond

For The Purple One

We played Jack's last night and pulled out a half dozen Prince songs. We set the stage lights to purple and I rested my copy of the Purple Rain album against Liam's kick drum so that His Purpleness would be dancing with us all night long. I've ended most of my solo sets with Purple Rain for a couple years now... We've got a bootleg recording of the band playing it from last night so I thought I'd share.





Thanks for the music Prince.
