Theory of a Deadman strips down hits for acoustic concert in Trail

The Charles Bailey Theatre has become a popular stopping point for renown Canadian artists of late.

The Charles Bailey Theatre has become a popular stopping point for renown Canadian artists of late.

Bryan Adams, Gordon Lightfoot and Colin James have all made well-received stops in Trail in the last few years.

And next week another nationally acclaimed group will arrive in the Home of Champions when Theory of a Deadman (TOAD) performs on Tuesday in Trail.

Although TOAD is known for its hard-rocking, grunge style of music, which earned the band a Juno Award in 2003 as new group of the year, the sounds coming out of the Charles Bailey Theatre will have a much more subdued effect as the group strips down many of its most popular songs in an acoustic concert.

Unplugged 15 presents TOAD at its most basic yet soulful level. “The acoustic tour gives us an opportunity to play a lot of songs that don’t really go over well in a rock club kind of atmosphere,” bassist Dean Back told the Trail Times. “The bare bones of songs all start with an acoustic guitar.”

The band, featuring Black, lead singer Tyler Connolly, guitarist Dave Brenner and drummer Joey Dandeneau, is taking a trip down memory lane with their acoustic tour of small venues across the country.

“We always played in Tyler’s dad’s basement,” said Back, recalling the band’s early days in North Delta. “We never really played live and our songs sort of got in the right hands and the next thing we knew we had a record label from the States come up into Delta and listen to us play.”

Another big name act in Trail is good news for the Charles Bailey Theatre said manager Nadine Tremblay.

“Locals seem especially fond of big-name acts and we have a farther reaching appeal when it comes to these acts.”

Tremblay pointed to the upcoming performance of Jann Arden in March as another lure for music lovers.
