JON AND ROY TOUR CANADA!! …and get a little bit of love from Volkswagen, Exclaim!, and CBC

Victoria, BC’s Jon and Roy may lack the head count on stage seen with other bands touring Canada, but they certainly have a support team of heavy hitters backing them up. Their sophomore album ‘Another Noon’ (Blue Heron/Pacific Music/Warner) landed them a nine month North American ad campaign with Volkswagen (replacing Wilco), sent them overseas to tour with Buck 65, and their Jon and Roy Holiday Special show in December sold out the 810 seat Alix Goolden

JON AND ROY TOUR CANADA!! …and get a little bit of love from Volkswagen, Exclaim!, and CBC

Victoria, BC’s Jon and Roy may lack the head count on stage seen with other bands touring Canada, but they certainly have a support team of heavy hitters backing them up. Their sophomore album ‘Another Noon’ (Blue Heron/Pacific Music/Warner) landed them a nine month North American ad campaign with Volkswagen (replacing Wilco), sent them overseas to tour with Buck 65, and their Jon and Roy Holiday Special show in December sold out the 810 seat Alix Goolden theatre in advance and was recorded by CBC Canada Live to be broadcast across the country later this month. Together Jon Middleton (vocals, guitar) and Roy Vizer (drums, percussion) are touring through Canada with full time bass player Ryan Tonelli in tow and stopping in Vancouver where Jon has been invited to sing the national anthems for an NHL game.

‘Another Noon’ contains 15 beautifully crafted original compositions drawing from folk, reggae and hip hop influences. Do yourself a favour and listen to the track ‘Little bit of Love’ here: http://www.myspace.com/jonandroy
