VENUE: Norfolk County Fair & Horse Show-Simcoe, Ontario-Canada
The Norfolk County Fair & Horse Show, held in Simcoe Ontario, is in its 175th year, and is the fourth largest fair in Ontario, with over 100,000 visitors each year.
This year one of Canada’s most successful bands of the past decade, Marianas Trench played the fair to a near full house on Friday night. They are best known for their chart-topping radio hits including “Fallout,” “Haven’t Had Enough,” “Good To You,” as well as their creative music videos. Josh Ramsey thrilled the audience when he took a shirtless two song tour through mostly female crowd, stopping along the way for a couple of selfies with his fans. Upon returning to the stage Josh commented that there was some groping going on and “not by him”.
Marianas Trench was formed in Vancouver, BC by lead singer/songwriter/producer Josh Ramsay who received a Grammy nomination in 2012 for his production and co-writing of Carly Rae Jepsen’s pop gem break-through “Call Me Maybe.” Matt Webb lead guitar/backing vocals, Mike Ayley bass guitar/backing vocals, and Ian Casselman drums/ percussion/ and backing vocals.
This summer the band is performing dates throughout North America, giving audiences a sneak peak at material from Astoria, due out by the end of October.
