Meet the BB Guns
Surfin’ through the musical landscape of hard and soft, the BBs take you on a rip rollin’ journey full of hazy fun. The image and name remind you of something you once loved and something you are about to love all in one breath. It's a little punk, a little girly and all tough cookies. Laser gun guitar tones, jingle jangle melodies and a pulsing, heart pounding, move your hips rhythm, is what this pack is about.
The BB Guns are:
Alana Marta Dee (guitar, vocals) Charlotte Marie (keys, vocals)
Clint Rogerson (bass)
Dan Arget (drums)
Laura Hermiston (guitar, vocals)

First off, you can now check out all our videos from YouTube in one place- on our VIDEOS page on this site.
Now for the fun stuff...
This past week was a blast. Our gig at Lee's Palace for NXNE on Saturday night went off with out a hitch and the feedback we've been receiving has been most flattering (if you'd like to read some, visit our Facebook page for the time being, since it'll take me a little while to compile everything and update our PRESS page.). On another note, we got to catch some fantastic gigs during NX, including our buddies, Beliefs, at Handlebar on Thursday, and Ostrich Tuning at the White House earlier that night.
Our gig with Jacuzzi Boys and Man or Astro Man? on Monday at Lee's was a ton of fun, as well as highly entertaining for us to watch. You can check out some photos from that night here: http://aestheticmagazinetoronto.com/2013/06/18/photos-man-or-astroman-jacuzzi-boys-bb-guns-lees-palace/ We had the supreme pleasure to party with the wonderful lads after as well. Perfect end to an exciting, music filed week.
Next up we'll be performing at the Doll Factory by Damzels' Annual Summer Kick-Off Backlot Bonanza this Saturday afternoon. Toronto surf group, the Blue Demons will be preforming too, and the MC is the Canadian Wolfman. I've seen him host a Burlesque show before- its quite a thing to see.... AND there will be dancing girls! Like the Face book page says: BABES! BEER! BOOZE! BANDS! BBQ!. It'll be rain or shine since they've got tents set up in the backlot. Come join us!
Following that we will be piling into the van and heading to Lakefield, just north of Peterborough for an outdoor festival called the Stone House Music Fest. We're on at 9pm. Here comes the BB Guns.
