THE WELLAND MIGRATION TOUR | featuring…
Street Pharmacy (Welland, ON)
It’s no secret that Street Pharmacy wears its hometown on its sleeve with pride. Their love-hate-love relationship with Welland, Ontario has been well documented in songs like In This Town and Degenerate. Not to mention, the ridiculous amounts of references to regionally significant locations peppered throughout frontman Ryan Guay’s lyrics. “I write what I know and I know Welland” he said in regards to what inspires him to bring pen to the page.
“Our documentation of small town life and mindset has carried us over the last decade” said bassist Jesse Robitaille. “Welland is not too dissimilar of any small town in Southern Ontario, or anywhere for that matter. Every kid grows up bored and disenfranchised by the task of growing up in what seems like an isolated community with a narrow view of what is deemed an acceptable occupation by their elders. Welland is a rustbelt diamond in the rough; a hot bed of youth culture so bored that they’ve been forced to forge their own path no matter how daunting the creative task may seem.”
Revive the Rose (Welland, ON)
A gutsy, every-man band from Niagara. They’re the kind of band that turn heads when they play live. Revive the Rose provides the party and the most powerful shredding rock and roll in town! Telling real stories from an everyday point of view of hit and miss. A collection of honest and straight forward songs touching on themes of life, love, learning, and moving forward. Revive the Rose has conquered Southern Ontario, and always ready to prove that rock and roll will never die.
The band has quickly made it’s mark in Southern Ontario, opening for acts such as Danko Jones, The Glorious Sons, The Standstills, as well as coming in the top 4 final round of 97.7 HTZ-FM’s Rocksearch 2016 contest. As well, they have just released their second EP “Generation Breakdown”, recorded at Juno Award winning studio Catherine North Studios.
