ABOUT THE EVENT




It all began in Nova Scotia late in 1969. The Henman brothers, David and Ritchie, got together with their cousin Jim Henman and fellow musician Myles Goodwyn to form a band called April Wine, a name chosen simply because they were two words that sounded good together. Fifteen studio albums, three live releases, numerous compilations, a boxed set and thousands of concerts later April Wine has become enormously popular in Canada, the United States and throughout the world. Classics include:

“Forever For Now,” the band’s sixth album, included a Canadian music milestone for the band; the best selling Canadian single the band ever released. Both the single, “You Won’t Dance With Me,” as well as the album reached critical acclaim with the single reaching Gold and the album reaching Gold then Platinum in Canada.

Many people consider “Stand Back” to be one of the band’s greatest accomplishments. This album provided the hits, “Tonight Is A Wonderful Time To Fall In Love” and “I Wouldn’t Want To Lose Your Love.”

With the release of “The Whole World’s Goin’ Crazy,” April Wine became the first Canadian band to achieve Platinum advance sales orders and included another April Wine classic in the ballad Like A Lover, Like A Song.

“Forever For Now,” the band’s sixth album, included a Canadian music milestone for the band; the best selling Canadian single the band ever released. Both the single, “You Won’t Dance With Me,” as well as the album reached critical acclaim with the single reaching Gold and the album reaching Gold then Platinum in Canada.

With current members Myles Goodwyn, Brian Greenway, Richard Lanthier and Roy “Nip” Nichol, April Wine enters into their 44th year as a band, with just as busy a schedule as ever… quite an accomplishment for any rock n’ roll band!
