About The Pursuit of Happiness:
Juno-Award winning, Canadian alternative power pop band The Pursuit of Happiness (TPOH) recently announced the details of a remastered deluxe edition of their 1988 debut album, Love Junk in celebration of the 30th anniversary since its release. Love Junk was originally produced by long-time collaborator Todd Rundgren and went on to be certified platinum in Canada. Today it is recognized as one of the Top 100 debut albums ever released, anywhere. The deluxe edition of the album includes unreleased demo and live versions, along with the original indie tracks that were recorded and released that landed the band their deal with Chrysalis Records in 1988. Along with the stand out track, “I’m An Adult Now”, the album is known for its alternative radio staples “Killed By Love”, “Hard to Laugh” and “She’s So Young”. TPOH are excited to return to the stage and play their nostalgic songs for fans across the country. After many years of evolution, the band’s current line-up features original members, Moe Berg (lead vocals, lead guitar, songwriting) Kris Abbott (guitar, backing vocals), Dave Gilby (drums), and long-term additions, Brad Barker (bass, occasional live backing vocals) and Renee Suchy (backing vocals, live percussion).

About The Northern Pikes:
The Northern Pikes have been a band for 34 years and in 2017 they put out a special 30th anniversary edition of their beloved debut album, Big Blue Sky and the band embarked on a national tour (first in over a decade) in support of their re-release. Both the record and their performance feature the hits Teenland, Things I Do For Money and Dancing In A Dance Club. These were the songs that helped the group explode out of Saskatchewan and become fixtures and stars on radio and MuchMusic. Kevin Kane from The Grapes of Wrath has joined The Northern Pikes and he is in the studio with the band recording a new record for release early 2019.
