If you have yet to check out Nights & Weekends, then you are in for a pleasant surprise.
I had the pleasure of first hearing these guys at a small bar on College Street, in downtown Toronto over a year ago. I was immediately enamored by their sound and have been bumping them ever since. Nights & Weekends have a unique ability to meld together acoustic melodies with intelligent rap verses backed by a driving and catchy beat.
The three-piece consists of lead singer and Ontario local, Brendan Beamish whose soulful lyrics break through every track and hit you where it counts, the heart. To Beamish’s left stands the bands other front man, Jermaine Hamilton from New Orleans, who paints pictures with quick-witted rhymes and meaningful lyrics. Finally, Nights & Weekends keep their tempo with the outstanding stick handling of Davey James, a multi-instrumentalist hailing from Texas, responsible for much of the instrumentation heard on their new EP.
With the weather finally turning, I honestly cannot think of a better band to provide the soundtrack to your summer. Nights & Weekends has an inexpressible feel that sounds great whether you’re sitting in a bar downtown in the middle of the city, or hanging out on the dock watching the sunset with some old friends. Either way, what these guys bring to your ears is something that you don’t want to sleep on.
They have just released an EP titled Old Creek Revival that consists of four soulful and catchy tracks epitomizing the bands sound and ability to produce quality music. If you’re looking for something new, something fresh, and something that will excite you and anyone who hears it, CHECK THESE GUYS OUT.
Keep up to date with the bands activities by checking out their personal website www.nawlive.com. Give them a listen and then shoot on over to iTunes http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/old-creek-revival-ep/id516040526 and pick up your own copy of the EP and I promise you’ll be happy you did.
I highly suggest getting out to see Nights & Weekends live. Not only do they deliver studio quality on stage, they deliver an intoxicating show that will have you leaving the bar as a loyal and fervent fan.
Until next time,
