ECMA 2017 – Rock Stage and Rising Star Stage

If you know me, you know that I love my Newfoundland bands so even though I was busy checking out all the bands from the other Eastern provinces, I still had to fit in time to support some of my favourite local groups.

After checking out a few bands playing at the Pop stage at the Trade and Convention Centre, I headed over to the Delta to catch Waterfront Fire at the Rock stage. They played almost a full set of new songs to a crowd that really seemed to love it.

I popped back to the Convention Centre to check out the rest of that showcase before heading back to the Delta once again to see Fairgale’s second showcase of the night at the Rising Star stage. Even though they didn’t start playing until 1:30am, there was still a crowd around. They played some new tracks and some from their debut album.

I’m Tara and I’m a graphic designer from Newfoundland. In 2004, I found out who Hedley were are they became my first favorite band and 11 years later they still have that top spot for me. I am very fortunate to live in a city where there is a ton of amazing musicians. I’ve grown very fond of the local music scene in St. John’s and some of my favorite bands are ones I’ve met through going to local shows.
