April Wine Tickets - This Isn't Grape Juice We're Talking About HereNo, sir. Really, this is a band straight out of Halifax, Nova Scotia, founded back in 1969 with members Myles Goodwyn on guitar and vocals, David Henman on guitar, Ritchie Henman on drums, and Jimmy Henman on bass guitar. Now let's get this out of the way real quick by saying that you're dealing with major talent here. Once they cinched their label deal for their debut album, it was clear they were on the road to fame. Let's put it this way: they were the first Canadian band to go platinum. Here's why.
April Wine Tickets - The Music of April Wine1971 was the year when their self-titled debut was released, featuring their very first hit 'Fast Train.' What followed in the very next year was the band's Canadian number one single called 'You Could Have Been a Lady' from the album On Record. The band returned several times for more work -- Electric Jewels being the very next album released followed by April Wine Live in 1974 and Stand Back in 1975. The first Canadian platinum-selling album was the one that came immediately after in 1976: The Whole World's Goin' Crazy. It changed the face of the music industry and made April Wine an instant classic.
April Wine Tickets - The Sound and Style of April WineMajor classic is all you can say about this band -- they fall in the same line as the Doors, the Who, the Grateful Dead, the Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, and Led Zeppelin. Only this is a band from Canada that made Canada famous. Eat your heart out, Mick Jagger and Steven Tyler and Jim Morrison.
