"In the early beginnings, these men performed at our annual "Biker Sunday" event. Right from the beginning, they have shown large quantities of talent and humility. In the years to follow as they came to perform, l have seen them continue to improve their talent and grow in humility. It is a pleasure to be in their company and engage them in concert."
- Pastor Chuck Sheridan of HRS

“You all were a hit… I 've had several people rave about you...saying - they hadn't heard of that band before, but were they ever good! We would love to have Peacemakers come back again…”
Pamela Lowe - The Solid Rock Café

" We have had The Peacemakers at Morden's Corn and Apple Festival and Winkler's Harvest Festival and they have had great concerts and definitely a crowd pleaser. Their ministry is solid, the sound is great plus they are fantastic to work with."
Ed Elias, Entertainment Committee, Corn and Apple and Harvest Festival

Bio

In the winter months Manitoba is one of the coldest Provinces in Canada. With temperatures consistently staying below –30C for long periods of time there is not a lot to do to keep away the boredom of being shut indoors. That is, unless you are a musician. Long boring nights plus guitars plus drums equals a lot of great songs! Manitoba is also one of the hottest spots in Canada when it comes to finding great bands of all genres.
The Peacemakers started as just another bunch of friends jamming on some old tunes in a back corner of a garage in the winter of 2002. Everyone was happily working and not really thinking too far into the future. Soon the band outgrew the garage and started jamming weekly in a hundred year old stone church that is now used as a mission in the core of Winnipeg’s crime ridden North-End. Old standbys were jammed out and new songs began to flow. It was pretty much evident. Everyone had a passion for the blues and Southern rock.
After playing a small concert at the mission the word got out and the phone began to ring. The band started to play wherever there was an open ear. In the summer of 2003 The Peacemakers entered a local talent show sponsored by CHVN95.1FM and Avante Records that included nine Winnipeg Christian bands. The grand prize was stage time at “Manitoba Faithfest 2003.” The half hour set surprised judges and a few weeks later it was the band’s turn to be surprised to hear they were the winners.
As the word got around Manitoba’s Bible belt in 2003 and 2004 the excitement was building. Small coffee shops packed out, large churches stuffed full, Christian biker rallies and hog roasts in Canada and the US had bikers dancing in the isles. Momentum continued to roll in 2004 with Promise Keepers Convention in Winnipeg and Manitoba’s two largest country fairs Morden Corn & Apple and Winkler Harvest Festival.
Wherever they played enthusiastic fans requested a CD. The band knew it was time. In February of 2005 they entered High North Records to record their first full length album entitled “Ready to Go” under the production of the creative John Paul Peters.
They are currently finishing up their second studio full length album entitled “Hold on.”
What style of music does the band play?
The Peacemakers can be bluesy, and they can lay down some tight old school rock. Swing is cool and country railroaders are not out of the question. Old hymns spiced up a bit are always on the set list and great crowd pleasers too. Some variety makes the soup tasty and The Peacemakers certainly know how to dish it out.
