Long time Whistler favourites She Stole My Beer play Buffalo Bills next week.
"Well be having fun as usual," said Dean Waisman, part time drummer, full time software consultant in Vancouver.
The band, who toured extensively across the Canadian college circuit for thirsty students through the early to mid-90s, now play five or six times a year while pursuing other projects.
Drummer Geoff Hicks, who still plays in a variety of musical outfits, returns this week from touring with the stomp-Latin-folk band The Paperboys.
"Its just a great chance to get together and play music, and we really enjoy each others company," said Waisman.
Part of what he dubbed the good weather local outdoor party entertainment in Whistler for years, She Stole My Beer, is back with some new covers. But they are still under wraps.
The band lineup includes Jordan White (chef at Ulis Flipside) on keys, Franco Diligenti on percussion, Tom Taylor on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Chad Chilibeck on lead guitar and vocals, David Hughes on bass and vocals, and Geoff Hicks, returning from touring as The Paperboys drummer. Taylor and Chilibeck arrange most songs for the band.
You can expect to hear songs off their debut album Sparks Off the Guard Rail, Live at the Liquid Ranch, a compilation recorded at venues around town, and Mule, released through MCA.
Classics from the Allman Brothers band and the Grateful Dead (Franklins Tower) are part of the revelry.
The band, whose last gig was jamming for a Vancouver boat cruise on New Years night, promise two nights of entertaining riffs.
