Once all the folks in Louisville calm down from basketball and football Saturday a great time awaits the avid music lover at Uncle Slayton’s as The Trews close the night, and the American leg of their tour. The Trews have not seen home in several weeks as they traveled from Toronto, ON to Birmingham, AL to begin a series of residency tours in the states to support their fourth studio album, Hope and Ruin. The tour sent these four guys to four cities; Birmingham, Louisville, Atlanta, and Nashville; for three shows in each town.
The Trews’ front man, Colin MacDonald talked about the residency tour, “This is how we gained a fan base when we started back home. Being on the road is hard, but seeing the fans makes it great.” Colin will provide lead vocal and guitar while his brother, Angus MacDonald handles back-up vocals and guitar. Sibling rivalry is not an issue with these two; they share a passion and love of music as well as for one another. The family theme is very real in this band as bass player Jack Syperek is a long time friend to the brothers MacDonald while drummer Sean Dalton is their cousin.
The Trews first played Uncle Slayton’s in late November to a near packed house and received rave reviews from fans in attendance. Fans traveled from Lexington; Indianapolis; Columbus, OH; Asheville, NC; and DeKalb, IL to see The Trews take the stage. The music is real and means something to the band; it is pure, unadulterated rock n’ roll. The final show will surely be one for the books as many are already planning to make the trip to Uncle Slayton’s. The Trews will join Corey Brumback and Stacey Lynn King Saturday, which is sure to be a good time. The fans in and around Louisville want the guys to come back very soon!
