Bottoms Up is a five-piece east coast traditional band from New Brunswick, Canada who has entertained and captured the enthusiasm of audiences young and old alike for the past 20 plus years.

Their recently recorded live album, Bottoms Up Live!, is a must have for your CD collection! It earned the band a 2007 East Coast Music Association Award nomination in the Roots/Traditional Group Recording of the Year category and has since spread the kitchen party from Northern Canada to the Southern United States, from Newfoundland to British Columbia and even over to the UK and Europe!

They have performed at many festivals, pubs and private functions and made many friends and fans along the way. If you would like your club, festival or function to stand on their feet and sing along, then give Bottoms Up a call!

Nothing symbolizes the true greatness and warmth friendliness of the Maritimes better than a good ol' kitchen party with Bottoms Up! Immediately you feel you are in the presence of good long-time friends.

Watch for them on the East Coast Music scene as they continue to entertain young and old alike, creating a kitchen party atmosphere wherever they play.
