    Wayne Nicholson & The East Ender's New Album - Diggin' The Dirt - Wednesday, August 09, 2017

    Wayne Nicholson and The East Enders are card carrying members of the East Coast blues and rock scene.  Some may even say, legendary…..

    Wayne Nicholson

    Often described as one of the finest blues-rock vocalists to come out of Atlantic Canada – Wayne ‘brings it’ with heart, soul and emotion and takes the audience with him on the journey of each song.  A prolific songwriter and recording artist, Wayne was a member of legendary Nova Scotia bands – HORSE (1 album), Oakley (1 album) (ECMA, Q104 Rock Hall of Fame) and recorded as a solo artist (4 albums).  In 2014 Wayne Nicholson and The East Enders was born and is the band closest to his heart, and so is their 2017 recording project, Diggin’ the Dirt .

    Doug MacKay

    Doug’s bio reads like the whose who of blues and rock in Atlantic Canada.  A sought after drummer often called ‘the metronome’, ‘Dog’ MacKay is the beating heart behind great bands such as, HORSE (1 album), Oakley (1 album) (ECMA, Q104 Rock Hall of Fame), Joe Murphy & The Water Street Blues Band, Horsepower Blues Band and the Sounds of Motown. Doug’s also played with Dan Ackroyd, Dutch Mason, Matt Minglewood and Sam Moon – to name just a few.

    James Logan

    James can play anything on his guitar!  Multi-instrumental performer, and producer, James has made a name for himself in the music scene throughout Atlantic Canada. Having toured all over Canada, the US and Europe, with dozens of studio, radio and television dates to his credit, James knows how to ‘bring it’ on stage and in the studio.

    Brian Bourne

    There’s only one Brian Bourne with his very unusual Chapman Stick!  A multi-stringed, wide necked, finger tapped rig that covers bass and guitar parts. With multiple ECMA nods and Juno awards, Brian has performed on over fifty albums in Canada, US, Europe and beyond.  An accomplished performer and songwriter, Brian is a force to be reckoned with when he graces the stage.

    “With this album we are going to let the world know that the best of ‘old school’ bluesy rock’n roll still exists in the maritimes!”  (Wayne Nicholson, 2017)
