Treble Warriors – Live Lounge (August 6, 2011)

Mississauga Ska-Punkers the Treble Warriors came to town, as part of the Ottawa SkaFest. This was my first time at SkaFest and also my first time getting to see the band under this incarnation. This was an afternoon show, which made for a weird dynamic. However, the humidity helped to set the scene. Previously, Bryan (Lead vocals, guitars) and Jason (Lead guitar, vocals) has played in Keepin’ 6. Following the breakup of that band, this project emerged. I always found their old band’s weak point was the rhythm section, and they have rectified that problem. Andy on drums and background vocals was quite lively, as was Dan K. (formerly of illScarlett) on Bass [also, it was really cool to see him play, as it had been forever for me.] Their set was filled with energy, and got that room full of dirty ska-punks dancing up a storm. Their cover of Toot’s and the Maytall’s Pressure Drop was a real highlight, and a good indicator of where their sound is coming from. Their previous work was more reminiscent of Operation Ivy or The Clash, and those influences are still there, this is just a bit different. Make sure you check out these guys when they come to your town. Bryan tells me their EP is in the mastering stage, so I would expect some shows to follow that – and you can expect a full review, here on
