It is March 31st 2013 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
From right here in Kitchener/Waterloo/Cambridge, Ontario, the pop/rock style band, Centennial, is taking home this week's featured spot.
The band, which consists of Brian Herr (vocals / guitar), Steve Blackwell (guitar), Dom Arseneault (bass) and Matt Sawyer (drums), may have just debuted their newest project in December of 2012. But, three of the members used to be in another successful Kitchener/Waterloo, Ontario based band prior.
In 2010 [current] Centennial members Brian Herr (vocals / guitar), Steve Blackwell (guitar) and Matt Sawyer (drums), alongside two friends, joined forces and created the pop/rock band known as Third District. They rocked the local music scene from early 2010 into 2012 before parting ways. After a short hiatus Brian, Steve and Matt came back together, recruited new bassist Dom Arseneault, and set back out to do what they love, music.
Now, they are preparing for their first event as Centennial, which is taking place this coming Friday, April 5th 2013 in Kitchener, Ontario. And, they do not plan to slow down any time soon. So, their incredible tune, Forever, is receiving this week's 'Song of the Week' spot.
Forever showcases their addictive pop/rock style and shows this band's phenomenal songwriting skills. The song itself resembles a ballad style tune and the lyrics are something you will instantly love.
These young men are definitely no stranger to the local music scene. With most members having played in numerous bands throughout their teenager years, it is obvious Centennial is a band you will want to watch.
On top of their upcoming first event this Friday evening, Centennial will be playing alongside friends in the Doug Clayfield Trio and the Joel Roberts Experience on Friday, April 26th 2013 in Kitchener, Ontario.
So, make sure you check out Centennial as they start to hit the stage again this Friday, April 5th 2013 in Kitchener, Ontario. And, keep checking back and continue to watch this local talent grow. Plus, you will want to check out Forever and see why it is this week's 'Song of the Week'.
Centennial are currently streaming this week's 'Song of the Week', Forever, on their ReverbNation page, which you can check out here:
See you next Sunday for [yet another] 'Song of the Week' to be added to our fast-growing list. Before then, check out, and follow, Centennial and get stoked as we begin to hear even more from this amazing local band.
