Dec 7/17 - Break's Over for THE TOWN CRYERS! - SOLD OUT! No tickets left. See you Friday night!

The Town Cryers Stanley's Cup

Oct 30/17 - Break's Over for THE TOWN CRYERS! - After about 25 years of individual projects, Ottawa’s own The Town Cryers are back! Friday, December 8, Irene’s Pub and ABC Brewery presents the official kick-off to the Break’s Over! Tour.

Adding to the excitement at the show, the boys will be releasing the long-anticipated album, Stanley’s Cup. It was 25 years ago, almost to the day, that The Town Cryers had planned to release the epic 18-song recording, but decided to shelve it for a couple of months… It’s has now been digitally remastered and out on CD and downloadable formats, to be officially released on December 8th.

The Town Cryers were at staple in Ottawa and, indeed, Canada's live music scene, locally frequenting The Downstairs Club, Zaphods and Barrymores. With their signature jangly-rockin’ guitar attack and sinister humour, they toured Canada with many major international acts, including Australia’s HooDoo Gurus and America’s BoDeans, to name just a couple. They had number one hits on radio stations across the country and were awarded with Best Independent Music Video on Canada’s Much Music and the CBC Telefest Awards. NME (UK) called them “Canada’s Replacements” and Toronto’s Now Magazine touted them as “Canada’s indie darlings”.

Cryers’ co-frontman John Allaire, “Well Ottawa. We’re back! And we are so excited to finally get this album into the hands of our fans. It’s been a long hiatus but I can tell you, this show is going to rock your socks off!”

The Town Cryers are lead guitarist, Jeff Tanguay (Life-Size Men), rhythm guitarist John Allaire (JA & the Campistas), bassist Rick Dixon (Not Really) and drummer, Kevin “The Breeze” Smith (JA & the Campistas). The four veteran rockers have been active in the international music scene individually and as part of other bands since the Cryers “shelved” the band and have released about 15 individual/band albums collectively since 1992. So don’t worry, they are tight and ready to roll.

Tickets are $20 and available in advance at Irene’s Pub, 885 Bank St. (limited numbers will be available at the door.) All tickets get you a copy of the “new” CD and guarantee your unforgettable night. Westmeath's Terry McLeish will be opening the show.
