Profile While the 80s arena rock movement lost its grip commercially many years ago, it has never been without a home in Victoria’s bars and nightclubs. But cover bands and acts who play original rock tunes tend to get lumped in together, making this one of the toughest markets to crack in Victoria.

The music of  “Messenger” is as such, and likely won’t pack clubs full of devotees. But the band is privy to some excellent production courtesy of Rick Salt, one of the Island’s best producers and a musician in his own right, and they obviously have honed their rock chops over the years.

The album contains some of the highest quality AOR/Radiorock you can get and it is so underground and hard to get and yet so interesting and good, filled with only classic uptempo AOR rockers and AOR ballads. For fans of bands like Van Zant, Stan Meissner, Champion and Steel Breeze.

    I’m impressed, I ought to say. Truly rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough many people are speaking intelligently about. I’m really happy that I stumbled across this in my search for some thing relating to this.
