Bio

How many times do we find ourselves in the world of music searching or waiting for something new and different? With so much new material and so many different artists in the game, it is rare that something will have enough edge or clout as to stick around for more than just a couple of months before fizzling out, or being forgotten in our expansive iTunes libraries. And yet it is not the clout, edge, or Modern take on music that makes Nights and Weekends worth their weight in gold, but their seemingly and effortlessly timeless sound. There is a truly vintage vibe to this band and it does not at all feel contrived. Which can be so rare in a world with so many different groups trying to fit a mold or style as if trying to match the hip ness of the past or push the present into the future.

This Group makes a big noise. And it doesn’t come from a Quintet, or a four piece, but a trio to be reckoned with. Lead vocals come from sonically inclined Toronto native Brendan Beamish whose sound can easily take you back 50 yrs to the days of a soulful Motown rich Detroit. Accompanying him is feisty New Orleans Native Jermaine Hamilton, whose quick tongue and quicker wit weave story after story while all the while allowing you to bop your head and move your body in time to the music and still loose yourself. Which is easily done with the unrelenting driving beat and bass sounds of Drummer, multi instrumentalist and Texas Native Davey James, reminiscent of something you might hear from Johnny Cash or his Highwayman counterparts.

Their live shows are impressive and always seem to leave you wanting more. Proving that when a band just has “that thing” it needn’t be picked apart or overly discussed it simply just needs to be enjoyed.

The new EP Old Creek Revival was entirely recorded at Canadian Recordings an Independently run studio by Davey James himself, who crafted, fully recorded and mixed this spot on eclectic 4-song collection. The band is quick to mention that no auto tune was used on this EP whatsoever, it was organically conceived and so for the sake of capturing the true vibe it is only fair it should follow suit in the recording process. It is so refreshing to listen to an EP, love it and become a fan, and then be propelled even further along with the love affair when you see said band live and realize they are the real deal in every way. And the EP is but a tool to capture a moment in this bands budding and hopefully lengthily mainstay in today’s sometimes bloody and embattled music industry.
