    MOVED TO WEDNESDAYS AT JIMMY JAZZ!!

    Mike B of One of Guelph‘s best cover bands take the stage SOLO!

    With combined resumes that read like a who’s who of the Canadian music industry, the members of this hi-octane power trio bring the experiences acquired over decades of touring internationally with top recording artists to this “ultimate cover band.” Being at a Test Icicles show is like hearing 30 of your favourite bands of all time, with all the intensity and faithfulness to the originals intact. Their chameleon-like interpretations of anything from The Killers to Queen are uncanny, and when they kick into full overdrive it’s akin to being hit in the forehead with a wrecking ball.

    Born out of the pure enjoyment of playing the best songs ever, members Mike B (guitar, lead voice), Groovy Shaun (bass, keyboards, backing voice) and the Hurricane Sean Kilbride (drums, cowbell flights of fancy, gong?) can drop names like, well, they can drop a lotta names. Kim Mitchell, Sass Jordan, Low Level Flight, Carole Pope, Andy Kim, Haywire, Melanie Doane, Tom Cochrane, Alannah Myles, Andy Curran, Leslie Spit Tree-o, James LaBrie, Lee Aaron, Lisa Dalbello and several Canadian Idol winners (among others) have benefitted from having one or more of these guys on tour or in the studio with them. If you saw the long-running Toronto productions of “We Will Rock You” or “Rock Of Ages” you will have noticed the mighty Hurricane holding it down on drums. Groovy Shaun is a former member of up-and-coming indie band Low Level Flight, and appeared in both of their top 10 videos. Mike B is an acclaimed producer/engineer, and has had success producing artists like illScarlett, Rex Goudie, Modified, Alannah Myles, Melanie Doane, The Apollo Effect and the aforementioned LLF.

    With a growing list of clients and special events including the University of Guelph (LaBash ‘08 and College Royal Ball ’08 and ’09), HRG North America, WarrickManzo&Dunn (Boobalicious ’08 and ’09), Grayson Matthews, Glaxo Smith Kline, Devan and Associates (four years running at Motoamore!), Doogie’s nightclub in Guelph (the band’s home base), and numerous weddings and private parties, they can pretty much kick any event into high gear and leave you in a state of rock and roll bliss.

    Please enjoy responsibly…
