Dubbed Canada’s “Celtic rock warriors”, the Mudmen are set to bring their wild show as they headline the Dirt Bag Ball at the Last Drop this Friday, Mar. 29.
The ball is a fundraiser for the Selkirk Ski Patrol Society, to allow its members to go for training, go on patrol exchanges to other resorts, and buy equipment. Dress up in your best dirt bag outfit for a chance to be name the king or queen of the ball.
The Mudmen will be headlining the show. Here’s what they write about themselves:
Always entertaining and definitely unique, The Mudmen are a blast of Celtic energy whose members are known to be characters both on and off stage. The band, formed in 1998 by Sandy and Rob Campbell (a.k.a. “The Campbell Brothers”), initially signed with EMI Records in 2000 with then frontman Zoy Nicoles. Best known for their singles “5 O’clock”, “Saturday”, and “Drink and Fight”, their music has been featured on XBox and Playstation games, NBC’s television show “Black Donnellys”, WWE Wrestling, Don Cherry’s hockey videos and six music videos on Much Music.
The Mudmen have appeared on CBC television many times including multiple live performances on Parliament Hill for Canada Day festivities (including performing for and meeting the Queen in 2010), The McKenzie Brothers special, the recording of the new Hockey Night in Canada theme song, and much more.
The Mudmen have 6 studio albums and have opened for ZZTop, The Guess Who, Biff Naked, Nazareth, Finger Eleven and many more. The Mudmen have toured Canada, U.S.A. and Europe and are best described as fun.
Tickets for the Dirt Bag Ball are $15 and are available from the ski patrol or at the Powder Springs.
