What a year!!! You take the good, you take the bad….. I had a lot of family heartache (hence the comprehensive list) and saw a lot of AMAZING live shows. I’ve been loving the picks by the other members of #GuelphMusicClub and I’m sure those of you that know me aren’t surprised that I’m posting my picks at […]

This is a BIG THANK YOU to everyone that has already contributed or helped spread the word about our campaign to go to print. The last couple of weeks we have seen a lot of great live music in Guelph and we’ve been to almost every show. Attendance has been great! Summer usually means show […]

Alex Ricci is a man of many bands and styles. He’s been an active part of the Guelph music scene, attending shows and playing in many bands, over the years.  Imprints is the first full length album by his newish band, Alex Ricci & The Still Nothing. It’s already available on their Bandcamp for digital download […]

I have one fond memory of Let It Bleed. I got it at Music In Orbit (I looked for a picture of the store front on the internet, but couldn’t find one) on vinyl for $8, because I was the only one to bid on it, during one of their weekly silent auctions. I also got the […]

Guelph Music Club had our first round of sharing this week. It’s not too late to join and it’s not just for Guelphites. Click the following links for more info on the assignment or the rules, Our first writing assignment, which ran for this, and runs for another 4 weeks, is Top 5 Albums from 1963 to 1973. So […]

Our inaugural topic for #GuelphMusicClub! During a chat on Twitter last week, a pile of music fans, bloggers, Guelphites thought it would be fun to read/write their own opinions on a weekly set topic. For the rules and break down, read this. So The Bookshelf News mentioned a Top 5 list based on decade, with the first decade being 1963 to […]

Oh Twitter. Make one comment and next thing you know, #GuelphMusicClub is born. It started with The Bookshelf & Mike Gamble.   With the last reply I tried to open it up, just a little. And then the ball really started rolling… There are a pile more screenshots, but you get the idea. So if a dozen of us, […]

Mokomokai is a band that I would have loved when I was thirteen. I would have had posters on my wall, T-Shirts, all of their cassettes. I would have followed them into my twenties, with the extra income I would have as an adult, I would have seen them live on all their Greatest Hits […]

Hoodie Good is a name I recognize from posting shows in Guelph for almost two years but, up until Saturday, hadn’t had the opportunity to see live. Based on what I’d read, I expected a solo singer/song writer. I walked into The Cornerstone for week two of Hoodie Good’s May residency (brought to you by Fortnight Music) […]

I accidentally bought Sonic Union by Cursed Arrows. I use the word “accidentally” to explain things I did not intend to do, but ultimately did. Usually this is for a few reasons, but most times, it’s just plain laziness. “I accidentally slept in, because I didn’t set an alarm”, “I accidentally spent my whole paycheck […]

Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of hearing Guelph band Bill Killionaire play several times, at several different venues. Over the last while, they’ve gone from a four or five piece band, down to two, and back up to a four piece. Singer and chief songwriter Scott Haynes and drummer Nathan Campagnaro were the […]

Electro, Dance, EBM, House. Guelph band Bowjia is all, and none, of these things. What they are is part of all of these genres, with added influences, and all mixed together. Bowjia have created a sound a little similar to a lot of things you’ve heard before, without duplicating it exactly, which makes their genre almost […]

Welcome to V2.0 of Music Lives! It’s been almost 16 months (but who’s counting) since this project was started and a lot has changed. What hasn’t changed is the musical talent that comes from and through Guelph on a weekly basis. When we started talking about a site refresh we looked at all of our […]

What happens when you cross R&B, a Marching Band, a little Ska and a pile of Hip-hop? St. Catherines’ My Son The Hurricane happens. Thanks to Fortnight Music I was able to see this great band live, for the second time at eBar, Guelph, May 10th, 2012. Some of you might be familiar with MSTH […]

Almost two years in the making, Guelph band Mandroid Echostar‘s first EP was released on their Bandcamp page for free download (I highly recommend donation, though) on April 22, 2012. I was lucky enough to get an advanced CD copy of this 4 track EP and have listened to it almost constantly since. Right out of the […]

I’ve had the great pleasure of seeing Your Neck Of The Woods live about a half dozen times over the past couple of years, so to be asked (I was going to do it anyway) to review their first full length album, Alberta Burning, for them is great for both of us. The album was […]

(Editors Note: This post was written Monday. We realize it’s Wednesday but I had some technical difficulties. It’s my fault it’s just going up now. Also, since the original post the video has been taken down but I’m sure you saw it. I selected the photos for the post to replace the video. Anyways, Teresa (@thebandiswithme) […]
