Juno Week has officially kicked off today in Hamilton, Ontario with the first events leading into the 2015 Juno Awards, and that included a sneak peek at the stage with Hedley front man Jacob Hoggard, and the Arkells.
CHUM FM welcomed a big group of lucky contest winners on Friday, March 23, for the annual CHUM FanFest concert at the Masonic Temple in Toronto. On stage this year for FanFest 2012 were Train, Hedley, Carly Rae Jepsen, The New Cities, Victoria Duffield, Marianas Trench, Kristina Maria, and FeFe Dobson, who filled in for Melanie Fiona, who couldn't make it to the event.
Through an unfortunate series of events, this will be the first time in years that I'll be missing most of Canadian Music Week this year, but I am glad to be going to at least one event tonight. The good people at CHUM FM have invited media to their annual FanFest concert at the Masonic Temple, and they've brought in a few notable artists, including Train, Hedley, Carly Rae Jepsen, The New Cities, Victoria Duffield, Marianas Trench, and Kristina Maria.
On Tuesday, February 1, Canadaian musicians were in the spotlight once again as the list of nominees were revealed for the 2011 Juno Awards, which will celebrate their 40th anniversary by bringing the festivities back to Toronto for the first time in eleven years.
Toronto fans were reduced to screaming throngs tonight as the annual MuchMusic Video Awards brought together some of the biggest names in music for a gigantic block party that shut down the corner of Queen and John streets in downtown Toronto.
The 2009 Juno Awards have arrived after an hour-long delay thanks to the Amazing Race. So, when the awards finally kick off, what are we treated to, but Nickelback opening the show, again, with pyrotechnics and singing "Something In Your Mouth". Am I the only person in Canada who is tired of these idiots? Their crappy brand of redneck rock is dead. Move on. Do honest-to-God rednecks even buy this crap any more?
