Who: Sea Perry & Carmel Mikol Band
When: October 29, 2015
Where: The Carleton Music Bar & Grill, Halifax NS

Sudbury, ON based trio, Sea Perry made their way to the East Coast for a few dates, and Halifax was lucky enough to be graced by their presence. It was a rainy day, but nonetheless we made the 3 hour voyage to The Carleton to see these guys do what they do!

At 10pm the Carmel Mikol Band hit the stage, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed their set. Carmel has such a large voice, and the highlight of their set for me was “Caroline”, which was based on a missing person poster that she had saw.



Next, the boys from Sea Perry hit the stage with amped up energy with 3 songs that I hadn’t heard before, “Till The Day I Die”, “Temporary Escape” and “Are We Alone”, and as with all the songs I have heard from the band, they were right up my alley.

Next, a familiar song began to play and it happened to be one of my favourites, “Lion”. I couldn’t resist singing along with the band. Lead vocalist, Chris Milligan has such a strong voice which is perfectly complimented by Shawn Fisher and Chad Bouchard, these three guys didn’t take long to become one of my favourite bands when I heard their CD and now they have shown they are also experts at live shows, even after a “few” drinks…thanks to Nate.

As the show went on, there were many silly moments and lots more great tunes such as “Molly’s Shoes”, “Do What You Do” and “Miles Away”.  If you ever have the chance to check out Sea Perry, do it! Seriously, you won’t regret it.
