The iconic Canadian rock band Myles Goodwyn and April Wine will be in concert at the Gibraltar Room in Williams Lake on Monday, Oct. 15.

April Wine has seen members come and go since first coming together in Nova Scotia back in late 1969, but has long been a favourite on the rock circuit.

The band has 15 studio albums, three live releases, numerous compilations, a boxed set and thousands of concerts under its belt.

With top hits including top hits such as Keep on Rockin’, She’s a Roller, Tellin’ Me Lies, You Could Have Been a Lady, Drop Your Guns, Can’t Take Another Nite, Just Between You and Me, Nothin’ But a Kiss, Big City Girls, and Bad Side of The Moon the band has become hugely popular in Canada, the US and throughout the world.

April Wine was inducted in to the Canadian Music Hall of Fame on April 18, 2010 during the Juno Awards.

The previous year, in March of 2009, April Wine was inducted into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame during Canadian Music Week in Toronto.

The band has also received The Lifetime Achievement Award for being part of Canadian Music History for 40 years.

The present April Wine line-up includes original member and lead songwriter, singer and guitarist Myles Goodwyn, Brian Greenway on guitar and vocals, Richard Lanthier on bass guitar and vocals and drummer Roy Nip Nichol.

Nichol joined the band in April of this year and has been playing drums since he was 15 years of age. He has toured with well-known rock bands, Steeler, Sam Hill and with the Journey tribute band.

Nichol is also a great singer and having four vocalists in the band at the same time will be a new experience for the legendary band.

After taking a break from touring, Goodwyn is opening for April Wine’s 2012 tour.

The opening set features Goodwyn playing a variety of songs he composed, as well as songs that influenced him and subsequently the musical direction of the group.

The band continues to satisfy fans with a live mix of straight ahead rock n’ roll and power ballads, an April Wine mainstay.

Sponsored by the RUSH radio, April Wine’s Monday, Oct. 15 concert at the Gibraltar Room in Williams Lake starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are available for cash only at Audio Video Unlimited.
