The Rockhouse once again played host to a band from my childhood. Big Wreck rolled through town this past Tuesday along with Ascot Royals. I was in attendance, along with my wife Anne, to photograph the performances for The Walleye. Surprisingly, this was the first time I had the chance to see Big Wreck live, so I was quite excited to hear some of their new work and of course, some of their classics.
We ended up arriving a bit late, but I still managed to catch the Ascot Royals last couple songs and I came away with some pretty good shots as well. Then, after about a 40 minute wait, Big Wreck took to the stage. You could immediately feel the energy rise a couple notches from the crowd. It was a packed house which was awesome to see.
Big Wreck put on an amazing show, playing a good mix of songs from their new album, along with a lot of their classics. They even changed the arrangements on a couple of the classics, which really gave old songs a new twist. Not only was I able to get some great shots from the floor, but I also got access to the top floor, which is where I got most of my favourite photos.
Anne and I stayed right to the end of the show and it was totally worth it. Next time Big Wreck comes through town, if you haven't already, you should really check them out.
