I’ve got a great group of guys in the band who are fun to play with on stage and party with after,” Blais said in a statement. “So I know that we, and all the audiences are gonna have a blast. Canada is such a huge country. I never realized that until planning a tour from one end to the other, so, this is a huge undertaking for any band. But, I’ve always believed in the hard work, grass roots, live music approach to building a fan base, so, I’m really excited.”
