Hello from Reggies green room, where we’re rug-doctoring our assess off! It gets kinda crazy in here from time to time. Enough said.
Adorning a “I got kicked out of Reggies” shirt, Canada’s most brilliant, awarded and exhilarating guitarist Ewan Dobson took the stage in his trademarked urban camouflage pants. Breaking into themes from gamer favorites like Castlevania as well as popular trance and bluegrass songs, he delivered a world class sound-scape 100mg everyone embraced.
