Casino New Brunswick presents Great Big Sea on New Year’s Eve

A Sweet Release

(Moncton, NB) – Ring in 2014 with one of Canada's best live bands, Great Big Sea! The group will perform at Casino New Brunswick’s Event Centre in Moncton on New Year’s Eve, Tuesday, December 31 at 10:30 p.m.
 
Members Alan Doyle, Sean McCann and Bob Hallett have somehow managed to keep the dysfunctional-family-bar-room-brawl-student-art-project-musical- pirate-crew known as Great Big Sea going for two decades. And more often than not, they have done it with more than a bit of flair.

GREAT BIG SEA

Great Big Sea has maintained an unswerving commitment to their original ideals — a belief that a marriage of their own creativity and the joyous folk music of their home in Newfoundland would be an unbeatable combination.
 
Great-Big-Sea-XX1-300x300Celebrating 20 years together, Great Big Sea released XX in 2012 (Warner Music Canada). Compiled by the band members themselves, XX is a special two-disc set that captures the many highs in a recording career that has produced ten full-length CDs and two DVDs. In order to express the band’s two sides, one disc covers the biggest hits from their more pop-oriented repertoire, while the other contains some of their most loved traditional and folk songs. To balance out the discs, the band recorded six new songs, which run the gamut of their varied stylistic approach.
