The Northern Pikes were spawned in Saskatoon from the ashes of three local bands. Cutting its teeth on the prairie bar circuit, the band has made an indelible mark on the rock scene. With their powerhouse hit “She Aint Pretty”, the northern pikes took their place as superstars. The Pikes’ first Virgin release, Big Blue Sky hit the streets in June of ‘87 and featured the hit singles “Teenland”, “Things I Do For Money” and “Dancing In A Danceclub”, introducing the band to a wider audience.
On this very special evening, the northern pikes will perform this landmark album in its entirety. In addition to the record’s hit singles you will hear the title track “Big Blue Sky” plus “You Sold the Farm”, “Jackie T”, “Lonely House”, “Never Again”, “Just Another Guy”, “Love and a Muscle” and “Love Will Break You” along with decades of behind-the-scenes video footage.
With 8 Juno Award Nominations, 4 Gold albums & 1 Double Platinum album, the band was inducted into the Western Canadian Music Hall of Fame on Sunday, September 30, 2012 in Regina. Without a doubt, the northern pikes have a sound and message as relevant today as it was when they began.
