May 13th, '06  - Merimac plays the Alehouse (pics here) with guests Kevin (formerly of Fortune's Hand) for the Fri. & Sat. as Ryan Hawes is flown in to TO for round two of Canadian Idle.  Ryan makes top 40 in Canadian Idol but forgets words in a song which the judges didn't appreciate.  Hey Ryan, it's just like playing with Merimac!  A rare night to behold, both Merimac's bass players,  Peter and Craig play together on stage.  Of course Shawn from the Alehouse sings a few.  And the hottest Latino star east of Ont., Yoanis Roche from Caliente Entertainment sings a couple Latin Merengue songs.  The Alehouse was absolutely jammed and jammin.  A crew of about 20 people go back to Craig's place to continue the party 'till Sunday afternoon.

May 1st, '06 - Merimac voted best party band in the Maritimes by Maritime Music Central with worst website content including news, updates, ph
otos & downloads.  (We celebrate that, yet say we're are sorry!).

Jan. 26th, '06 - in between sets at Cheers Eddie and meets some of the boys from Great Big Sea again.  Last time I seen them in person was when we were playing at the Alehouse.  They later popped in The Alehouse to catch part of our set.
Jan. 13th, '06 -
Another fun Thursday night playing at the Old Dublin in PEI.  We have noticed that there are a lot of musicians watching and cheering us on here tonight.  As we tiredly get off stage for the night, the members from Headley come up to say hello and hang out with us for awhile.  Some manager guy comes up and starts bugging Eddie & Ryan about playing more and having "some guy" come up and play with us.   Eddie chuckles "not likely,we're done for the night".  Then Rex Gowdie introduces himself to Eddie and says "great show, keep it up".  Someone later explains to Eddie who Rex Gowdie is and Eddie feels bad but mentions it was fun telling the "big manager" to "buzz off"!  Peter McDonald who couldn't make it with us this weekend stays in Halifax and ends up hanging out with The Black Eyed peas for hours after he gets them to believe he's a reporter for a major paper back stage! (no kidding!)
Oct. 10th, 05 -
Our gigs in T.O, Allentown, PA and Manhattan we're incredible!  Eddie & Peter were just getting out of the subway from visiting Ground Zero when authorities received a terrorist alert for the subway and shut it down.  Geoff misses his morning flight to the gig to Pennsylvania and rebooks other for after. Click here for all the photos and out-of-town stories.  Merimac receives several other gig offers in the States.
Aug, 05 - Merimac is selected as backing band for country star JD Clark with #10 hit in Country Music Canada.  We opened for Jason McCoy for several thousand in Cape Breton, NS.

Oct. 20th, 03 - While playing our first set at the Split Crow, we all find serious problems with our instruments.  Bruce breaks a string 1st song, Our guitarist sites a major crack between the neck and body of guitar, Eddie punches hole in tom-tom & breaks bass drum pedal.  The bass amp makes unpredictable alien sounds.  Oh yeah and Henry doesn't show for first set due to bicycle problems!  We all buckle down and make due.  Hey guys, do you think anyone out there noticed?

Oct.15th, 03 - Our first international gig!  Atlanta, Georgia!  After much debate within the provinces as to which band will best reflect the spirit of the Maritimes at one of the largest Atlantic Canada's business conferences of the year, Merimac is chosen to play
and entertains with smashing success.  An excellent number of people attend & stay at the event.  Merimac plays for 2 & 1/2 hours straight without a break.  The Atlantic Canada event completely out shines Ontario's effort.  Many new opportunities to play conferences in the U.S. have begun!

June30th/03 Sad News. With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.  Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully, in his sleep, at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

Jan..4/03 - Wait, who's in the audience? Great Big Sea... watching us at the Alehouse?  After about a half hour of being bombarded by everyone for autographs, Great Big Sea finally leaves but mentions to the door man "the band's great but the crowd's getting rough".  Funny thing was we probably played about 3 Great Big Sea songs for them in the time they were there!
