About Hootie & the Blowfish
With the rich, bluesy vocals of Darius Rucker and gleeful harmonies of guitarist Mark Bryan, bassist Dean Felber and drummer Jim "Soni" Sonefeld, Hootie & the Blowfish have sold over 25 million records worldwide to date after their infectious melodies hit the airwaves in 1994 with hits such as "Hold My Hand", "Let Her Cry" and "Only Wanna Be With You."
The band took a break from full-time touring in 2008, reuniting annually for a variety of philanthropic events while also pursuing solo projects. 2019 will mark the band's first full-time touring year in over a decade as they embark on the Group Therapy Tour in support of forthcoming new music under a new record deal with Universal Music Group Nashville.
About Barenaked Ladies
Over the course of their remarkable career, Barenaked Ladies have sold over 15 million albums, written multiple Top 20 hits including radio staples One Week, Pinch Me, Brian Wilson, If I Had $1,000,000, garnered two GRAMMY nominations, won eight JUNO Awards, had Ben & Jerrys name an ice cream after them (If I Had 1,000,000 Flavours), wrote and recorded the theme song to the award-winning TV series The Big Bang Theory, participated in the first-ever space-to-earth musical collaboration with astronaut Chris Hadfield and garnered an international fan base whose members number in the millions.
In 2018, the band vocalist/guitarist Ed Robertson, drummer Tyler Stewart, keyboardist Kevin Hearn and bassist Jim Creeggan celebrated their 30th anniversary with the release of a dynamic new album, Fake Nudes, a much-deserved induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame with Rush vocalist Geddy Lee handling the honors and a proclamation from Toronto Mayor John Tory declaring October 1 Barenaked Ladies Day. The band is currently in pre-production for a new album due in 2019. For more information, visit their website.
