Playing for Pink Wig!
On May 2nd the prestigious 4th Annual Pink Wig Gala, which is a fundraiser for their women's cancer charity, was held at the Adam Ballroom in Saskatoon and The Steadies had the honour of being the feature live act of the night. The charity raised the most money ever and overall was a smashing success!

Sunny Spring Tour in Beautiful B.C. 
It was the band's first B.C. tour in the spring in many years and it was action packed as The Steadies played 9 shows in 11 days from Golden B.C. all the way to Tofino! Lexie finally got to see Longbeach and the trio enjoyed some gorgeous weather which also made for great summer vibing live shows! Their 420 party in Duncan at the amazing Showroom was recorded in high quality audio and video so stay tuned for some some future live performance posts!

Rocky Mountain Rocksteady!
The band spent back-to-back Bow Valley weekends in Canmore then in Banff for Easter Long Weekend and rocked 6 crazy fun shows! The Drake and Rose & Crown were the first venues frontman Earl Pereira started playing in with Mobadass, "going back to these rooms feels like playing hometown shows because of all of those years playing there as Mobadass and now as The Steadies. The crowds and shows are still some of the funnest ones and we look forward to them every year!" says Pereira.

Amazing Alberta Tour!
 The Steadies played a grueling 9 shows in 10 days but never lost their signature high-energy pace as they island-rocked Red Deer, Calgary and Edmonton for the first time in over a year! The shows were a huge success, in Calgary they sold out Nite Owl and were moved to the bigger main floor venue and then had an epic encore with the other amazing bands UNO and JK & The Relays. It was definitely a rocksteady explosion to say the least!  Wrapping up the tour was a Valentine Day show at Blues on Whytle in Edmonton and the place was jammed and filled with Steady love in the air. 
 

Epic Encore with all 3 bands on stage at the rowdy Nite Owl in Calgary!
