Stoked to be seeing these guys tonight. Last time was 1990. I think there may be one original member left but the Skydiggers performing in a big old barn on Canada Day should be a treat!

PEC gets some surprises like Johnny Winter:

We have a place 10 minutes from there and wanted to go to that one but the calendar was full.

So, GREAT show last night. The Hayloft is a fantastic venue for this sort of band. Lead singer Andy Maize and lead guitarist Josh Finlayson are original Skydiggers members and were in fine form. Good mix of older and "less old" stuff that had the crowd dancing from the opening number.

Actually ran into a couple who were at Queen's at the same time as my wife and I, one of whom worked at Stages when I saw the band there back in 1990 or 1991 (can't exactly remember). Definitely a walk down memory lane.

I can't help but feel that this band is a true Canadian gem. Strongly recommended if you enjoy this style of music. The band is very much alive and kicking and puts on a fantastic live show.

Sorry about the pic being upside down. Can't seem to fix that.
