The Rod and Gun has gone country with another special performance by The Tumblin' Dice!
Y'all better get down and experience a special performance by this exciting New Country band based out of Victoria, BC. They originally came together as the official house band for the Upstairs Cabaret, providing the entertainment for their monthly "Gone Country" events. Recently "The Tumblin' Dice" were named the house band at Sunfest in Duncan, B.C. (Aug 1-4), which includes opening for Chad Brownlee and Alan Jackson.
Although humbled by the news, it should come as no surprise as "The Tumblin' Dice" have continually wowed audiences while building their monthly Upstairs gigs to some of the largest Victoria has ever seen. They have established themselves quickly, generating a rabid fan base resulting in sold out shows with Country music enthusiasts overflowing the bar into the street outside.
After recognizing the overwhelming demand for New Country from the success of their Upstairs shows, the band began to write original material and expand their audience. The four-piece has played all over southern Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, and is now starting to book on the mainland (Vancouver, Port Coquitlam) and further up-Island (Duncan, Nanaimo, Campbell River). They continue to work hard on their forthcoming album which they will be debuting during their summer mini-tour. The first single, "This Old House" has been generating tremendous feedback and the boys are eager to capitalize on their new-found acclaim.
The future is bright for this up-and-coming band as they continue to provide high-energy entertainment to their expanding fan base.
