About The Stogies

After garnering a first place finish at the Road to Indie Week 2012 and a second place overall finish at the Indie Week Nationals in 2012, Blake Johnston (vocals/ guitar), Dave Driscoll (guitar/ vocals), Sean Carver (bass), Jason Keddy (organ/ keys) and Dave Lidstone (drums) embarked on a successful Canadian tour that surrounded two showcases at Canadian Music Fest 2013. The Stogies also co-headlined an extensive Atlantic Canadian tour this past summer which saw their first trip to Newfoundland. The tour came to fruition after sharing the stage with fellow tour-mates and St. John’s natives, Long Distance Runners, at the 2012 Q104FM Keith’s Natal Day Festival at Alderney Landing in Dartmouth, NS.
