Waterfront Fire, a six-piece band from St. John’s with four members with west coast roots, will be holding a mini-tour in Corner Brook and Stephenville on Friday and Saturday.
The band writes ambitious modern rock music. To date this year, Waterfront Fire has played to a capacity crowd at the Rock House in St. John’s, recorded their debut EP and released that same album to a full house at the Levee in St. John’s.
Waterfront Fire members include: Stephenville natives Andrew Boyd, guitar and Ben Thistle, guitar; Ryan Tobin of Kippens on drums; Brandon Young of Deer Lake on bass and vocals; Jordan Croaker, lead vocals and Sean Jessome on keyboard.
The band is bringing along their friends in another band Make Mean Everything, consisting of, Jeff Cook on guitar/vocals, Braeden Pilgrim on drums and Jon Conway, bass.
Friday’s performance takes place at the White Horse in Corner Brook at 11 p.m. for ages 19 and over, with an all-ages show at the same location at 2 p.m. Saturday. The local Corner Brook band West Street Children will be joining the bill for the all-ages show.
Saturday’s other performance takes place at 11 p.m. at Clancy’s Pub in Stephenville and the bands will be joined by local artist Alonzo Rumbolt.
"We are really looking forward to showing the people on the west coast what we've been doing musically. Both bands play high-energy sets and love to get people moving. For half of our band this trip feels almost like a home coming of sorts,” Andrew Boyd said.
