An Evening with Sloan in Saskatoon


  • April 7, 2018 - Showtime: 8:00pm

Sloan are still here to serve you. On the surface, Ferguson’s centerpiece track “Essential Services” seems like another joyous display of the band’s consummate craftsmanship, using a bouncy “Mr. Blue Sky” piano line as a trampoline for some sky-bound CSNY-worthy harmonies. But couched within its ecstatic sound is a poignant statement of purpose. Says Ferguson, “Chris thought the song was a fun way of referring to our band, being an essential service—we can't go away! The song touches on that aspect of our career. The chorus—‘essential services are counting on you’—refers to ourselves, but also the ‘you,’ meaning our audience and how we count on them to support and continue with us. They're part of the equation as well. Does that sound too corny to say?” Hey, if it feels good, do it.

Note: some folks might stand in order to achieve their maximum level of Rock. The Broadway cannot discourage this, as it is our job to facilitate the Rock for all peoples (regardless of race, gender, age, religious inclination, income, personal philosophy, shoe size, etc). We ask that you all, whilst Rocking, respect one another.
