Entertainment Lineup

Trans Canada Highwaymen

The Trans-Canada Highwaymen (TCH) is a super group (your words - not mine) consisting of Moe Berg (TPOH), Chris Murphy (Sloan), Craig Northey (Odds) and Steven Page (Ex-BNL). Four guys who have known each other for (ahem) decades now all of whom have written songs that have contributed to Canadian culture.

The TCH live show will include songs from Explosive Hits Vol. 1 but the emphasis of the TCH live show will still be the songs these guys have written.

Don’t worry, you’ll still hear Moe sing "I’m An Adult Now", "Hard to Laugh" and "She's So Young". You’ll still hear Chris sing “Underwhelmed", "The Other Man" and "The Rest of My Life". You’ll still hear Craig sing "It Falls Apart", "Someone Who's Cool" and "Make You Mad". You’ll still hear Steven sing "The Old Apartment", "Brian Wilson" and “Jane".

And you know what Vol. 1 means …
