60TH BIRTHDAY COTTAGE BASH … A TORRENTIAL SUCCESS!
Things could not have been worse … torrential downpours gradually seeped under the walls of our tent, a lake formed in the driveway, the BBQ caterer truck got stuck in the mud and lastly the power went out. We were about to throw in the towel on our outside cottage bash, until we called to cancel our band, “The Clearing.” They listened, were supportive and gave us the confidence they could still make this party happen! As an acoustic band they did not need power!’ When they arrived, they were upbeat and positive, and were set up and running in 15 minutes. Uplifting music filled the tent immediately, warming spirits of all our guests ranging from 16 to 85 years of age! People were on their feet dancing and singing along with Stephan’s powerful vocals. Jay was a major attraction, giving his all on his Cajon drum. Eric’s fun loving manner was very well received by the seniors who had taken seats right beside the stage. He jumped down to perform a rift beside them, so close these lively 80 year olds reached out and ruffled his dangling hair! The Clearing played popular cover song requests and even belted out a German song from their repertoire for our visiting German cousins. They also shared some of their originals like “Morning Sunrise” which became a personal favourite of mine. Suddenly the lights went on! The crowd cheered and the band slipped smoothly into mic mode. The sound and the spirits elevated to a new high! This band connected so well with the audience that as the evening was winding down, Stephan had everyone up on the dance floor for the last 2 songs. Our “washed out” party became a “torrential” success thanks to the talent and enthusiasm of The Clearing. These talented musicians have the personality to make any backyard party a night to remember--they even joined us for our midnight swim in the Burnt River! Thank you Stephan, Eric and Jay! We hope to hear you again soon…in Toronto…in Nova Scotia…or maybe Germany someday!! GREAT GUYS, GREAT MUSIC, GREAT NIGHT!

"These guys are awesome! They started coming up to our pub last year, and now I try to get them in once a month. Our pub is small with no dance floor, and yet every time The Clearing is there it turns into a dance party. Staff and patrons are always sure to have a great time!"

"What an awesome time we had with The Clearing at my wife's 40th Birthday Party this summer! The guys were professional to deal with, arrived early to get set up, and could not have been more cordial and accomodating during the whole process. For the entire night, they rocked the house and really became part of the party! They played all the music we asked them too, and even had many of our guests jump in to sing or play along with them. All the guys in the band are very talented musicians and vocalists, and their performance was definately the highlight of the night! I am sure they will go on to make it big, and play much bigger venues, and I will be able to tell everyone about the night The Clearing played in my backyard for all of our friends...who continue to rave about the band and the party!"
