After 25 years, the STRANGE ANIMAL returns.


Dancing On My Own Ground- Gowan 2014

We're very pleased to announce two upcoming Gowan shows for 2014.

12/12 - Mississauga Living Arts Centre, Toronto, Ontario
12/13 - Deerhurst Inn, Huntsville, Ontario

Since 2010 when we played the Return of The Strange Animal shows in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Strange Animal record, we have been on a roll to continue playing Gowan shows each year.

2010/2011 -Return of The Strange Animal
2012- Moonlight Desires Live
2013- In Kilt Tonight (solo-live)

In the band this year for your entertainment, we have the following players:

Todd Sucherman - of legendary Styx fame and one of the highest ranked drummers on planet Earth. Todd was voted greatest rock drummer on planet earth in Modern Drummer magazine in 2010 and his "Methods and Mechanics" drum dvd's were also voted number one.

Emm Gryner- vocalist and keyboardist well known and loved for her solo albums and also her time as a member of David Bowie's band. Recently Emm did the music for Astronaut Chris Hadfield's version of Space Oddity which was broadcast from the ISS in 2013 and received more than 50,000,000 hits on YouTube. Her latest album "Torrential" was released this year.

Terence Gowan- bassist/vocalist. A well known notorious Gowan band alumni from the 1980's and member in good standing for all our shows since 2010.

Danny J- guitarist extraordinaire, enlightened human being and bandmate since the Return Of The Strange Animal in 2010.

Playing these shows is going to be fun on an epic scale and we're very much looking forward to seeing you (please insert your name here _____) at this year's extravaganza. Songs from all Gowan albums will be featured in addition to an ever-evolving set of visuals primarily based on our 80's videos and the Moonlight Desires Live shows of 2012.

In related news: I was very pleased and honoured to receive three SOCAN awards this year for songs that exceeded 100,000 plays on Canadian radio. Those songs are 'A Criminal Mind', 'You're A Strange Animal' and 'Dancing On My Own Ground'. 'Moonlight Desires' received the same honour several years ago so now there are four which have achieved that level of recognition.

Cheers to all,
