Rik Emmett “Rehearsing Every Day With The Triumph Lads”


May 2, 2008

Triumph’s Rik Emmett released the following statement through his website:

On Monday May 5, I am hosting a part of the Humber Students’ Songwriting Showcase at Hugh’s Room. Blair Packham will also be there to sing and play. So will Fergus Hambleton and Terence Gowan, plus a bunch of very talented past participants in the Humber summer workshop, including the incredible Justin Nozuka, who was nominated for Best New Artist at this year’s Juno Awards. Showtime is 8:30 PM. Hugh’s Room is at 2261 Dundas Street West, just south of Bloor. Door is $ 12. Please come and join us.

Rehearsing every day with the Triumph lads: breaking in my new Gibson guitars [including a doubleneck!] and, ummm, polishing my Hall of Fame Award [which still seems surreal to me]. Hope to see you out at a gig soon … Keep your eyes & ears open for new announcements soon – for example, just signed on to do a new Beatles kind of stage show on a limited run basis in Toronto and Ottawa in October. Seems a long way away, but Life seems to be flowing at 299,792,458 metres a second. Yeah – the speed of light – bits & bytes flowing through fibre optic cable!!

All I can say is – careful what you wish for, cuz you just might get it, and then some, and you won’t have any time left to write blogs on your myspace page!!
