Kenny Shields & Streetheart
Friday Jul 18th, 2008 - 11:15 - 12:30 AM - Stage 2
An honour for only a select few artists, Kenny and Streetheart were inducted into the Hall of Fame based on their impressive legacy of excellence and their undiminished fan loyalty which is still so strong even to this day. After 30 years, Kenny and the band continue to play with a fierce energy and precision that other bands would be hard-pressed to match and they remain a benchmark in their industry. Everyone from veteran promoters to longtime loyal fans can't help but be impressed at how GOOD this band still is. Just come to a show and watch the band work. You'll agree this isn't just hype. Kenny, Daryl and Jeff along with longtime members Blair DePape and Tim Sutton continue to do what Streetheart has always done from the very beginning which is to deliver high quality shows fueled by an "absolutely everything they've got" attitude. It's all done with a level of ease and confidence that only comes with their kind of experience. That, combined with great songs, is a major part of what makes their shows so memorable. They know their fans deserve the best and this only highlights the level of friendship and respect the band have for each other, as well as for the history of Streetheart. If you haven't seen Kenny Shields and Streetheart lately, you owe it to yourself to see one of Canada's premier bands, and see that after 3 decades and a million records sold, what made the band so special then is still so clearly evident today.
