Get on yer dancing slippers or your stompin’ boots its time to give ‘er on the floor with The Mudmen. The last time The Mudmen appeared on stage at the Games we packed her tight. There is no better rippin’ act in Canada that’ll have you bustin’ a step! These guys were the opening act for – The Guess Who, Nazareth, Finger Eleven, Biff Naked, Econoline Crush, David Usher, the lead singer of the alternative rock band Moist.
You’ve played with your Xbox and Playstation. The Mudmen’s music is in the games you play. If you watched NBC’S television show “The Black Donnelly’s”, yes, you’re right, that was once again the Mudmen contributing the music. A fan of WWE Wrestling, Don Cherry’s 9,19,20,21,24,27 hockey DVD’s, the Mackenzie Brothers TWO-FOUR special on CBC, HBO’s Shameless, HNIC Coach’s Corner (the Dale Hunter Tribute) again the music was Mudmen at their finest! The Mudmen also have 6 music videos on Much Music/MTV, and they’ve reached the top 20 on the edge radio. So, kick back and watch a few of their Youtube videos. Now do you see why we are saying come early to the tent.
In 2008 the Mudmen or the Campbell brothers were asked to perform CBC’s new “Hockey Night in Canada” theme song produced by Canadian Icon Bob Rock, where Ron MacLean quoted “Mudmen, We Love Em”. This lead to a 3 month tour, PBS specials and DVDs. Next, it was a performance at the Canadian Country Music Awards with Johnny Reid. Still not convinced to get to the tent early. OK, try this!
The Mudmen have appeared twice on Parliament Hill for Canada Day. They performed for the Queen, performed at the Edmonton Oilers home opener, have been seen on ceremonies CBC and performed at the Edmonton Oilers 84 Stanley Cup re-union with Wayne Gretzky and the full 84 Oilers Team. They have been on stage givin’ er with Sarah McLaughlin and with Red Ryder.
I can’t write all this, but if you’re still not convinced to get to the tent early well be prepared to miss out. This list is the Mudmen and the reason to get to the tent early!
