BLUE RODEO

Blue Rodeo has been pouring out crowd-pleasing country rock tunes since 1984, yet Canada still can’t seem to get enough. With eleven studio albums, one live album, a greatest hits collection and a DVD, the band has sold close to four million units worldwide and several band members have released successful solo albums. Their 2005 release “Are You Ready” entered the national charts at No. 3, proving that a band that stays true to its roots earns the loyalty and appreciation of its fans. The band, which has been nominated for 17 Juno Awards and has scored 7 wins, was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in March 2006.

Band members Jim Cuddy, Greg Keelor, Bazil Donovan, Bob Packwood, Glenn Milchem and Bob Egan have been a stimulating and innovating force among Canadian musicians. Over the years, the band has engaged in musical mentorship and exchange with several up-and-comers within the Canadian music community. Most recently, fellow Canadian musicians Jim Bryson, Kathleen Edwards Matt Mays & El Torpedo and The Sadies.

The members of Blue Rodeo have also been committed to countless social advocacy issues over the years, both as a band and individually, and on a local and international scale. Some local causes which have benefited from the band members’ desire to make a difference in their community include the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children, MusiCan (a music education program for children), and the Buried Heart Society, whose single “The Streets Where You Live” included the voice of Cuddy and 80 other prominent Canadian artists. The song was intended to raise awareness for over 60 women still missing from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.
