Celtic Connection: Cod Gone Wild

Cod Gone Wild have had a tremendous couple of years. I know that when I had them out to Music in the Park last summer in West Kelowna we had our biggest crowd ever of over 1100 folks.
They told me at the time that every community in the Okanagan was showing them the same response. Its tremendous to see such a hard working band rewarded for their creative efforts.

Nowadays they are huddled away in their studio working on their new album (ready to launch on March 17th, St Paddy's Day).
If you want a chance to catch them before that I have booked them to headline the opening night of this years Global Music Fest on Feb 21st (19+ show).
Tickets for Global Music Fest can be bought online or from the Bike Shop Cafe or Leo's Video for $15. https://globalmusicfest2014.eventbrite.ca
The Saturday night GMF show (Feb 22nd) features Five Alarm Funk (https://globalmusicfestfivealarmfunk2014.eventbrite.ca) but more about that another day.
Here is an in depth interview I did with Cod Gone Wild this past weekend about what they have been up to and what their plans are for the coming year.
