16. April Wine #1

While in Ottawa, we heard April Wine would be playing a free concert on the Rideau Canal. Leanne and I first saw April Wine together about 15 years ago so thought it might be fun to go see them again. They still put on a pretty good show.

We got there a little late, but still before they went on. We had a tough time finding seats but did find a good place to watch from where we could stand and see them unobstructed. I have a decent ability to navigate my way through a crowd so left Leanne watching while I went up to get some photos. Navigating a crowd full of people with backpacks on is much harder than without them.

I did get up pretty close and was able to get some nice shots of the band. Unfortunately I was not in a position to catch Jerry Mercer on the drums...I love his solo's.
