Blacktop Ball 2016

Hey everyone!
We are insanely stoked to announce that tickets for our annual gong-show, the Blacktop Ball, are available NOW. This annual event is the highlight of our touring year and for those who attended last year, you already know how awesome it will be this time around. Camping, beach and music. What else is there to want?
This year, we have stepped up our game and are bringing along a handful of some of our favourite bands, who will perform with us over two nights. Here is what the weekend looks like:
Friday night September 2nd is a hang out night. Come, get set up for the weekend and share some drinks and laughs with us. Maybe we will play washer toss. Maybe there will be a jam ;-)
Saturday night September 3rd is Rock and Roll night
The Stanfields (rock show)  
The Town Heroes
Like A Motorcycle  
Sunday night September 4th is good ol' fashioned Folk and Country

The Stanfields (acoustic) 
The Divorcees
EB Anderson & The Resolutes  
The Mike Bochoff Band  

We have a variety of tickets available for campers and non-campers alike, starting at $24. Click HERE or go to for tix options and more information!
Don’t miss this. Seriously. It’s ridiculously fun.
