Pictures of the Band Not Playing In Toronto

The incredible first pictures are in. Just a little taste here, but you can check out all the best of the band not being together on the hottest OES blog.

I don't even know why I have this blog. Okay, I do. I admit it's a bit of my personal sounding board for the trials and tribulations of being the band's managers. It's not that they're not great kids - they are - and it's not the I find the job tiresome or anything - because I don't, at least not the majority of the time. It's just that it's not easy keeping so many people focused on the same goal, however much we all want to succeed.

And yeah, I'll admit that sometimes I do get a little scratchy when I feel the effort I'm expending isn't being fully appreciated. Sure, everyone in the band that's literate (and that's most of them) know about the WordPress blog and the MySpace page, but did they know about this Blogger blog (that's how I feel somewhat at liberty to say what I want here). How about Flickr? How about the work selecting, cropping and thumbnailing pictures? Coming up with snappy descriptions? I'm not looking for a lot, just the occasional "thanks."

But this post is not about me, it's about the triumph of everyone in the OES organization, and I'm thrilled we were able to pull off not being together in such a stellar fashion. You're the best, guys!

Also OES recently tweeted that they haven't made it to Now Magazine's "must-see Toronto shows this week." Hot!

Introducing OES

If you haven't heard of the hottest Toronto band, OES, then prepare for a life-changing experience. Our brand-new Hogtown ensemble is so hot we don't need to perform gigs. We don't need to issue CDs. We don't even need to play instruments. That's what makes us the hottest band in South-Western Ontario and, probably, in the world.

We're so very, very hot that this is the only information we're going to give you at this point. If we were to give you any more dirt at this point, people would stop listening to music in Toronto altogether, and spend all of their time not spinning OES albums, or attending EOS concerts. A band this explosive has to ease into the scene in order to give the rest of those hard-working musicians a chance to come up with a countering strategy. Good luck, guys and girls!

Coming soon on this blog - band member biographies, places and dates we won't be playing, and much, much more information on this electric Toronto musical experience. Stay tuned, and rock on!
