Chester Playhouse presents “The Town Heroes”

Date August 14, 2021
TIME 7:30pm - 9:30pm

Chester Playhouse presents “The Town Heroes” at

the Chester Legion (14 Union Street) starting 7:30 pm. Help us celebrate
OUR town heroes (our volunteer fire department), with The Town Heroes! Born and
raised in Inverness County, Mike Ryan and Bruce Gillis have played together for
the past 10 years. They’ve toured the world, released four critically acclaimed
albums and won an array of industry awards. Anthemic choruses, 3-part
harmonies, tender falsettos and big drums highlight their riff driven, nuanced
barrage of sound. On stage they move like intense caricatures – pushing every
chord, note and beat to the limit. A structured wall of sound emerges; familiar
yet distinctive. Camaraderie shows in their musicianship, their song-writing
highlights what they are: friends playing music for the love of it, in it for
the long haul. Musically, The Town Heroes are reminiscent of the 90’s Alt-Rock
bands they grew up listening to. Lyrically, at the root of every song is a
passionate exploration of the things that make us all human. Whether good or
bad, they’re the things that make us who we are: heartache, longing, society in
the modern age, dreams, and family. Through the pandemic they released an album
of their past work, reworked into lush acoustic arrangements. Check out
this new, gentler side of the band’s work before they release their new album,
“Home”, this summer. To reserve your tickets, call the Playhouse at
902-275-3933 or www.chesterplayhouse.ca.
