We were stoked to get an invite to the eOne Music Canada party. “The Wild!” was one of the bands which were going play there. They hail from British Columbia and it was a great opportunity to see and hear this band.
To say the least, I was not disappointed.This foursome had a dynamic stage presence. They had a group huddle at the start of the set, which is something not often seen. The denim vests reminded one of Biker Colours. Their music is a gritty mix of Blues and Loud N Proud Rock and Roll.
Each member of The Wild! has clearly paid their dues. These were seasoned players, with a commanding stage presence.
Lead Guitar and vocals were handled by Dylan Villain. Backup vocals and thumping Bass was provided by Lucas “Boozus” Jancikic. Banging on the skins was Rowdy “Rick” Riegs. The newest member is Pistol Pete taking care of Rhythm Guitar.
You can catch The Wild! at the following Ontario locations:
FYI – all the above photos were shot at ISO 16,000 and were still underexposed by at least one stop (usually more). The Sony DSLR handled the low light situation well. My Nikon and Canon DSLRs would have been a bust in this situation. I’m saving for a Sony A7S. One can literally shoot in the dark with the A7S. If I manage to snag one, then I’ll be sure to bring it to next years party…
