RB: Tell us how Saturday Night Superstars began!
SNS: There are five of us in the band: Matt (vocals and Canadian Idol semi-finalist), Beau (keys), Pete (guitar), Dale (bass) and Sandro (drums). We've played in bands for years and crossed paths here and there. A couple of years ago, we found ourselves with an opportunity to collaborate and it was pure synchronicity. For us, what really stood out at the beginning was the level of commitment to musicianship and professionalism everyone brought to the band. It's exciting to play with musicians who are this good.
The idea that drove us at the beginning was to create a playlist that only included the absolutely greatest songs ever written. Period. No filler tunes, no songs where everyone leaves to go get another drink. Songs that cut across generations and resonate because they evoke an amazing feeling, remind you of a perfect time in your life, hit an emotional chord because they MEAN something to you, or make you want to MOVE. Songs that are exciting to play because we can feel the audience react to every single note. When you go from "Uptown Funk" to "Proud Mary," from Motown to the Beatles, from George Michael's "Freedom" to Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud," people will bring a wonderful energy to the dance floor.
RB: If you had to perform only one song for the rest of your careers which would it be?
SNS: We occasionally play "Hey Jude" to close our set and it is such a brilliantly written song. It's a joy to play and the audience reaction is always amazing. Hearing every single person in the venue singing along with you is probably as close to being an actual rockstar as you can get.
RB: What can guests expect from you at ReBash?
SNS: A high-energy performance and songs that will send a shiver down your spine.
ReBash is only a few days away and we are pretty pumped to have Saturday Night Superstars there with us to keep the happy vibe alive! Come shop, munch and dance with us on April 18, 2015 at ReBash and remember - if you want to check the guys out live, their last set is at 12:30pm!
