One of the west coast’s most energetic and magnetic live groups, the HEADPINS have an incomparable chemistry with their audience making them one of the hottest commodities in Canadian rock. Fronted by Darby Mills whose signature growl is matched only by her purr, the band has produced such hits as “Turn It Loud”, one of the greatest rock anthems of all time! Other ear-twisting tracks include “Don’t It Make Ya Feel”, the killer “Breakin’ Down”, “People”, the power ballad “Winnin’”, “Just One More Time”, “Don’t Stand In The Line Of Fire”, “Mine All Mine,” “I Know What You’re Thinking”, “Celebration”, “Feel It”, “Still The One”, “Death Of Me”, the sleeper hit “(You’re Only) Afraid Of The Dark”, along with “Be With You”, “Chain Gang” and the powerful “The Danger Zone”.

The album Turn It Loud (1982) rose to double platinum status, remaining one of the most successful debut albums by a Canadian group, ever. The follow-up entry Breakin’ Down (1983) proved this crew was no flash in the pan, reaching platinum status as well. With slick guitar licks, powerful vocals and a pounding backbeat holding it all together this is one raucous, energized live show!

Guitar legend and perfectly seasoned veteran, JERRY DOUCETTE needs no introduction. Who could forget “Mama Let Him Play”, “Down the Road”, “All I Wanna Do”, “Hey Hey, My My” and “Sittin’ Here”. A journeyman in every sense, he began to master the tradecraft of music with his father and uncle. Receiving his first guitar at age six, Jerry was in his first band The Reefers at the tender age of eight. By the time he had transitioned through Tribe, Brutus, Abernathy Shagnaster, Homestead and the Rocket – Norton Band Doucette was a true axe-master. In 1977, self-named DOUCETTE was born with the Platinum Album “Mama Let Him Play”. This success was followed by Gold Album “The Douce is Loose” (1979), spawning hit single “Nobody”. Earning the Juno for Most Promising Group of the Year (1979) proved he was on-track to superstar status. Jerry took control of his own destiny, reminding everyone of his diversity and genius with the album “Price of An Education”, returning to his raucous blues style with “Big Gov’t Man” and “Miracles”. Never second fiddle to anyone, JERRY DOUCETTE continues to deliver clean melodies and slick pop every time he takes the stage.
