How we met our friend Andy Kovacs
Andy in Japan
"Since you invited thoughts/reactions concerning your "Thoughts for the Day" page, and because some version of "Life in the 1500s" pops up at least monthly, I thought it worth mentioning that almost all the explanations are wrong. In fact, some of the phrases "traced" to that time actually originated fairly recently and have sports or other modern origins. A good explanation for several of these is offered at http://pw1.netcom.com/~rlederer/arcwdcr2.htm."
"I am having particular fun shooting pucks at all of you. It doesn't matter how many times I play that hockey game I'm laughing the whole time. It's REALLY funny!"
"Nice site guys,
You're always an excellent show. I've seen you before in Kingston.
Definitely a fun time."
"So, we head to Lee's Palace in Toronto last night only to find I Mother Earth is cancelled due to illness. We pick up a paper hoping to find another band and try to make something out of the evening, but there is pretty much nothing on. We decide to check out the Orbit Room, violently agreeing that if Alex Lifeson is even remotely associated with the facility it must be good, and on the way there we find out a band by the name of The Wheat Kings, a Hip cover outfit, is playing at JJQ's Sports Bar near Woodbine. What the hell, we make the trek up to Rexdale and it turns out to be a good show, with many oldies such as Highway Girl, Three Pistols!!, 38 Years Old, Boots, and many others. They actually managed to fit in a fine Marley jam (Everything's Gonna Be Alright) in the middle of Courage, it actually worked well. Well worth the $2 (cdn) cover charge.
"You've been kicking my ass in hockey all day!!!!"
"Hi guys this is just a little note to let you know that my husband and i saw you on sat, july 1st at Milliken Park for Canada Day and we were just blown away by your performance. If we didn't know any better you would think that you guys were the real thing. We love"Tragically Hip" and you guys ROCKED!!!!!!!! Keep up the fantastic work! We will definitley keep in touch with your website to check out performances in our area. Until then keep rockin"!!!!!!
"I have a couple of quotes for the day, you may or may not like them, to each their own I suppose, seen you at Miliken, you guys rock, I thought you were awesome.
"It's your big fan from Watertown. Just wanted to see how things were going with you guys. Are you playing lots, and are you coming to Watertown? How about anywhere else in the states? I am down in Albany, think you might ever make it down that far? Well, hope your summer is going well. Maybe I'll see you sometime. Take care and say hi to everyone else for me. Bye."
"It (y2k party) looked like a great time my new years sucked. I should have went to the Wheat Kings."
"Hey Guys! You guys rock!! We saw you at Desparados, we left our own party to watch you guys play! (No offense to the band upstairs) Hope to see you back in the states!"
"Hey Guys! I'm Shaggin Sherman, I dj at the club you boys just played at last night (Dec 9), GT's Roadhouse. Hey next to The Hip you guys are by far the best Tribute dedicated to the boys from Kingston! Rock on, Guys!"
"Seeing the Wheat Kings in concert is more fun than a saucy puppet show.
"WOW what a show you had for halloween at JJQ's you guys rock. You guys just got another wheathead grouppie"
"The Iceman is losing by a good 60,000 now. Sad.
"I caught your show outside Yonge Street for the Hard Rock Cafe's birthday bash in June I think?
"Got a chance to see you guys in a popular 'cougar' hangout around Yonge & Eglinton.
"I have seen you guys play a few times and by the amazing sounds that you guys produce, you would think it was "The Hip" themselves playing.
"The most rocking, talented band to hit the shores of northern NY! For the discriminating taste of this Hip fan, the Wheat Kings have what it takes to bring the spirit and music of The Tragically Hip to the stage. Plus they are a great group of guys!"
"Witty, talented, and Hip music too! You guys are the best!
"I'll never forget my first Wheat Kings show. That's where I met my husband. He looked so good, standing there swaying with the intoxication of the music (or was it the beer)? His knotty hair hanging past his shoulders, just brushing past the hole in his Tragically hip T-shirt. I knew at first sight this was the man for me. Even today, if we don't have enough money to see a real life Hip show, we can bet that our UIC money will be well spent at the Wheat Kings shows! They're absolutely awesome!!"
"During my viewing and critique of the show in a venue in Scarberia, this individual/critic found the music was excellent! If you squint your eyes they look just like The Hip.... or maybe a Ferrari....
"Cute site, mes dudes... But not half as cute as your show - (These guys are f!@#ing GREAT, BTW... They also have a. . . bass player who is absolutely amazing!)"
"Nice Site but where are the musicians. . .
"All I can say is this: If you are a Hip fan the Wheatkings are a must see!!
"Finland club owner Tom likes your site!!!"
