2014 JUNO Performance in Winnipeg!
All of us in the Brett Kissel Band are extremely proud and happy to have played live at this year’s Juno Awards in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Brett’s hit single, Started With A Song, went over huge with the live audience at the MTS Center, and we’re sure the telecast impressed all 3.6-million viewers in TV/PVR-land. My Gretsch back-line kit looked and sounded fantastic – no suprise there!
As Brett’s main drummist for almost 10 years, I am personally very proud of him and everything he has already achieved so far in his short life; I wish him much congratulations for winning his first JUNO Award at just 23 years of age. Brett won for Breakthrough Artist of the Year, which is especially exciting because it crosses the boundaries of genre, meaning Brett will hopefully be exposed to an even broader audience in this country. All of us in the BK camp have had an absolutely amazing year since Brett’s first major-label album – Started With A Song – was released on Warner Music Canada label. His JUNO win added some sweet icing on the cake.
There will be plenty of news coming in 2014 as well. Yes, this year is shaping up to be super-busy with exciting performances with Brett at festivals and events across Canada. Please stay tuned.
