Supercrawl Poster

Hey Folks,

Hamilton’s fastest growing free festival called Supercrawl starts this weekend, and has turned into a 4-day event (Sept 11-14), estimated to bring in over 100,000 people, with an amazing line-up of musical acts, including 2 SP acts, one, being one of Canada’s most prolific folk artists, Lindy Vopnfjord, and two, one of Canada’s top beat boxers turned hip hop artist, Hachey the MouthPEACE.

LINDY is opening the TD/ARKELLS Stage at 6:00pm on Fri, Sept 12, which is TONIGHT, and HACHEY THE MOUTHPEACE is performing at 1:15pm on the HAMILTON COMMUNITY FOUNDATION / EXCLAIM! Stage on Sat, Sept 13.

If you have not been to Supercrawl before, it takes place on James Street North (in Hamilton), which has been known in recent years as one of the world’s most renowned, growing art districts, and the majority of this street, where the festival takes place, is closed down to vehicles, bringing together a festival of performers, artists, vendors, key speakers, buskers, and many other types of entertainment, providing an amazing experience for all ages, and again, it is all FREE!

This Festival has grown exponentially since it’s incarnation in 2009, and I would highly recommend to everyone to be a part of this amazing festival, since there is something for everyone, lots of eye and ear candy, and never a dull moment of fun and excitement.

If you do not have tickets, you are out of luck, cause this festival is SOLD OUT, but keep an eye out for any act on this line-up, cause they are all on top of their game, and ready to perform for you at a venue near you, but don’t wait too late, cause those shows may be sold out before too long as well, so plan ahead and buy your tickets in advance.

SP President Joey Balducchi is doing a touring workshop and performing a rare solo performance at the Artswells Festival

Joey 1

Hello Folks,

Before Joey Balducchi started Spherical Productions in 2002, he was a solo artist, playing many shows and touring Canada, trying to make a name for himself  to help build his career. Gradually, after many years on the road, Joey put his solo career away to focus on the careers of other great artists, but never gave up on playing music or travelling. These were his two passions for years, which segued into wanting to help out other great musicians experience and tour our beautiful country as well, along with helping to build their careers.

After his last band Blind Mule called it a day in May 2014 to start other projects, where Joey played guitar, he was approached to do a touring workshop at the last festival Joey ever played as a solo artist in 2006, which was the Artswells Festival in Wells, BC, and to sweeten the deal, he was also offered to perform a 45 minute set of his original music. At the time, Joey only started to write again, but agreed to the offer, which put a fire under his butt to get a set of music written in 6 weeks, and be stage ready to perform in front of a festival audience.

As of Aug 1-Aug 4, 2014, SP President Joey Balducchi will play his first solo set of music in 7 years, so it is going to be a rare performance for anyone at the Artswell’s Festival, and as well, Joey will be putting on a workshop that revolves around the trials and tribulations of touring Canada. Joey will also be around all weekend to chat with anyone who has questions for him, since he has booked over 120 tours and booked 100′s of shows in Canada since 2002, and loves to share his knowledge with anyone who is interested in learning from him.

Wax Mannequin, Hachey the MouthPEACE and SP President Joey Balducchi perform at the Artswells Festival

Artswells Festival

Hey Folks,

There are a lot of festivals in Canada, but one that stands out for the artists on the SP Roster is Artswells, due to the fact that it is in a small town called Wells, BC, where the festival actually takes over the whole entire town, and the community embraces it, which is quite the experience to be a part of.

This festival is so magical, that many performers that regularly play the festival have been so inspired by this magical town, that they have bought houses in Wells, and most of the population in Wells, which is approximately 400, are musicians, artists and actors, which is quite an exciting rarity for a small town.

This year, along with over 100 other acts, SP artists Wax Mannequin, freelance artist Hachey the MouthPEACE, and SP President Joey Balducchi are all performing at this years festival, alongside other great artists, BidiniBand, Tanya Taqaq and Scott Cook, to name a few.

Wax Mannequin & The Donefors perform at the Brandon Folk Festival from July 25-27, 2014

Brandon Folk Festival Poster

Hey Folks,

One of the great things about the summer is the many options of festivals to go to all over the place, and this year, Wax Mannequin and The Donefors are playing the wonderful Brandon Folk Festival, 2 hours west of Winnipeg, MB.

This festival is a real treat to people of all ages, and this year, these 2 SP artists will be sharing the stage with the likes of Ben Caplan & the Casual Smokers, Martin Sexton, and Cold Specks, to name a few, so if in the area, don’t miss out on this great weekend of music and fun!!

Lindy performs at the 125th Icelandic Festival of Manitoba from Aug 1-4, 2014

Lindy Fest

Hey Folks,

Just north of Winnipeg is a little town called Gimli, MB, and in that town every year they put on a festival called the Icelandic Festival of Manitoba, otherwise known as Islendingadagurinn, and this is the 125 year anniversary that this festival has been going in, which is quite an amazing accomplishment.

This year, Lindy Vopnfjord is performing at the festival, and bringing his full band with him to rock the stage, and represent his Icelandic heritage for the weekend of Aug 1-4, 2014.

If in the area, I highly recommend going to this festival, which includes artists like Elliott Brood, The Bros Landreth and The Meligrove Band, to name a few.
