THURSDAY JULY 25 - For those of you who have heard and seen Erika (Sit) and Sara (Campbell) play in our store or other local venues over the last couple of years, you will understand how proud we are of them.
The first time they played in Cheeky Monkey, they were very inexperienced and nervous. With each return performance, we noticed they were getting not only more confident, but their playlist was growing. Along with some really interesting covers of songs, they have been writing and performing self penned songs.
Of late, they have been getting more and more gigs outside of Sarnia-Lambton. On July 20th, they competed in a Battle of the Bands in West Lorne with the prize being the opportunity to be the opening act at Boot Hill ‘Country’ Jamboree in Bothwell. Guess who won?! You guessed it - ERIKA AND SARA! They will be opening for Aaron Pritchett and Adam Gregory on August 3rd. Go to http://boothilljamboree.com for full festival details.
Today, Sara stopped in to share some other REALLY BIG news with us - but I am sworn to secrecy for the time being. Watch here for future revilation of where their dedication and hard work is leading them.
Ladies, we could not be prouder of you if you were our own daughters. We wish you much continued success and joy of music always!
Friday July 26 UPDATE…
It’s official, I can share the wonderful news. ERIKA AND SARA WILL BE DOING A MINI TOUR OPENING FOR EMM GRYNER!! The tour starts October 12th at the London Music Club and ends on the 23rd at the Toronto Enwave Theatre. Dates between are in Kemptville and Wakefield QC. Two of these venues are familiar to us as very prestigious places to play.
This is only the start for Erika and Sara - we feel the best is yet to come for this hard working, devoted duo who are 2 of the most down to earth people you could hope to meet.
