Coal Creek Boys play The Hideout

The Coal Creek Boys have had a nonstop extensive tour schedule since June 2011 that has taken them throughout all areas of mid and Western Canadian Venues.

The band plays The Hideout Oct. 19.

The band is steadily gaining popularity, on both commercial and non-commercial radio, with highlights on top 40 radio stations, and extensive radio airplay on more than half a dozen US radio stations, bulking an impressive American following.

This year has brought the Coal Creek Boys some great attention in Canada and United States and in other countries with the release of their second album, Rose Town which features 16 songs written in the same historic tradition as their 2012 18-song debut Hard At it in Old Town.

Singer/songwriter and front man, Johnpaul Smith, alongside multi-instrumentalist, Dino Scavo, have based The Coal Creek Boys’ music and successes around a tremendous amount of hard work and endless dedication.

Because of the hard work ethic, and release of two full length LPs in just over a year, both albums are selling and getting equal attention still.

Since 2012, The Coal Creek Boys have played and performed over 170 shows in venues, casinos and festivals. They proudly shared the stage with George Canyon, Hey Romeo, Library Voices, Julian Austin, as well as many other great musicians and artists.

With more than 45 original songs in their set list, which also include many upbeat and fun classic cover songs, from Mississippi John Hurts, The Band, Bob Dylan, Steve Earle right to Waylon Jennings, The Coal Creek Boys have no contention at keeping the stage and audience engaged, dancing and sharing a good time.

Drenched in the rich and diverse history of western Canadian coal mining, singer/songwriter Johnpaul Smith leads the band and the music through a wide array of storytelling that rings bells of familiarity of what country music once was, and should be again.

The Coal Creek Boys draw their listeners in with a classic and upbeat country/blues swing, and then deliver with impact. A story, or tale, directly related to historical events, truth, and of personal experiences.
