It started out as a normal cold winter night in Charlottetown, P.E.I. People dressed in layers of clothing as their noses and cheeks turned bright pink as they entered the University of Prince Edward Island bar, The Wave, on Jan. 25, 2012.
But this night was not going to be just an ordinary night for show-goers. This was going to be a night to remember. The smoke from a machine on the right of the stage gently gliding across the floor andÂ caught the glare of the spot lights as the anticipation was rising in the audience.Â Suddenly, cheers broke out as the members of The Trews made their way to the stage.
The excitement in the room was overwhelming as the song “The World I Know” boomed out of the speakers and shook the place.Â My first thought wasÂ this is going to be a good night.
The sound from the electric guitars, bass guitar and drums rang in perfect harmony with their voices all night.Â “I love being on the island,” said lead singer Colin MacDonald during a transition from one song to the next.Â During their ninth song, Highway of Heroes, a special guest entered the stage. P.E.I’s very own Tim Chaisson, who played the fiddle for the music video.
After an amazing 17 song set-list that had the audience singing every word, it was close to closing time.Â The Trews left the stage but the audience remained strong.Â “One more song, one more song!” they chanted.
After a few minutes they returned for an encore. The spotlights danced along their guitars as the audience cheered and sang along to Ishmael and Maggie featuring Chaisson again.Â It was a high energy show with great audience participation.
