Description

Lake of the Woods Brewing Company & Smoke on the Water BBQ, Beer & Music Festival Presents: the Northern Pikes with opening acts Begonia, Ian Sherwood & Kenora's own North Shore performing live under the Whitecap Pavilion on Kenora's waterfront June 23, 2018.

THE PIKES: The Northern Pikes have been a band for 33 years, but you’re going to have to forgive them if they’re acting like a new group. In a way, it is a fresh start. There’s a lot of excitement around their 30th Anniversary Tour in 2017 on their cross-Canada tour and the release of a brand new collection. The Pikes have put together a special 30th anniversary edition of their beloved debut album, Big Blue Sky. As the crowds at their recent festival shows can attest, there’s a real fire on stage.

Taras Manzie, President & CEO of Lake of the Woods Brewing Company, says “I am kind of a music aficionado, hum a tune and I can probably name the band and their greatest hits. I am a big fan of The Pikes and can’t wait to see them play live at Smoke on the Water! It will bring a lot of us back to our youth, to the 80s.” Remember, it was a time when most of the pack was trying to catch up with the ‘80’s hair-and-synth bands, while The Pikes, along with contemporaries such as The Tragically Hip and The Rheostatics, were instead writing about being Canadian, and embracing the joys of guitars and hooks. “The thing we figured out early on was, if you try to chase a trend, you’ll never catch up,” says bass player Jay Semko. “You just gotta do what you do, and feel good about that.”

Joining The Northern Pikes onstage as the warm-up and opening acts are Kenora’s very own North Shore, Begonia and Haligonian Ian Sherwood. Smoke on the Water brings together BBQ, Beer and a music festival, all along the water’s edge on the northern shores of Lake of the Woods: and promises to offer a memorable, summer experience for everyone, from craft beer groupies to lown slow BBQ newbies. See y'all there!
