As I mentioned in the last post we're entering into a new Ballistic Pig Chapter (or BPC). We're turning into a 4 piece with full time female lead vocals and our set will change a bit as well. We're still playing a lot of classic rock but are planning to venture into the 80's and 90's a little more and dabble in more pop and dance type arrangements. We'll still be screaming Led Zeppelin and such (as well as Motorhead and Iron Maiden) but you'll also hear more things like P!nk, Billie Idol, Roxette and the like. We're also hoping to deepen our repertoire of CCR and 50s/ early 60s rock to get everyone dancing and singing along.
Some of the transition is happening pretty quickly and Ucluelet will get its first taste of the new Ballistic Pig experience at Official's for their Halloween party on October 26th. We've also got a show in Port Alberni at The Blue Marlin Inn (formerly The Arlington) on November 15th. I suspect we'll have a weekend at Jack's in Tofno sometime soon too. If you're booking a holiday party or other event you need entertainment for let us know as we've got a couple other tentative bookings and we wouldn't want you to be disappointed. We're also planning to play weddings in the coming year so keep that in mind.
Finally, New Ballistic Pig (minus Tara because she's out of town) will be hosting the Monday night jam at Jack's in Tofino just like usual. See you there! -Geoff
