A Rockin' Summer

In June……we can look forward to brand new material from those Iconic American rockers-“Night Ranger”!  The “Sister Christian” boys are about to unleash “High Road”.  As with most releases from Frontiers Records, great pains have been given to release deluxe formats of veteran rockers.  In this case, “High Road” will boast two bonus tracks and a DVD inclusion of the making of the recording!  Of course the group is in high gear as they are planning a world-wide jaunt this Summer as well.  “Night Ranger” will begin their globetrotting right here in North America with dates booked for the next three months, and then…it is Europe Festivals!  “Night Ranger’s High Road” will be in record stores the first week of June.

It has been five years since these guys spread their collective musical wings!—“Better Days Comin’”-a collection of brand new material from hard rockers: “Winger” is now making its way to the heart of rockers all over the world!  Taking a break from the duties of “Whitesnake”, Reb Beach has re-teamed with Kip Winger and John Roth as well as drummer Rod Morgenstein to deliver this awesome comeback!  Critics are calling this record the group’s best yet.  “Better Days Comin’” is a diversified collection of Rockers and Ballads—and only in the way that this group delivers!

…..would you want these three in your living room?—I certainly would!—“Jesus Krysler” are preparing for some Summer dates in and around the province…why not request these three to perform at your favourite club-you won’t be disappointed!
