With spring comes new life. With new life comes change. With change comes a new adventure. The time has come. The adventure starts now.

KeelHaul.ca formed in 2005 for a St. Patrick’s Day house party and since then we’ve played our traditional Maritime / Irish Celtic music from coast to coast in bars, pubs, festivals, legions, back yard parties and kitchens.

We have entertained; poured our hearts out on the floor and met some great people and musicians along the way. It has been nothing short of a dream come true, but it’s time to put the microphones and instruments away for a while.

We’ve been followed, fanned and liked on every conceivable social/music media site and we thank our friends – and a few strangers, too – for this.

Music is in OUR blood and it would be foolish to believe that any one of us could just put the instruments away and not touch them again, but for the time being, and foreseeable future, the KeelHaul.ca ship is in dry dock.

It’s been a great run and just as much fun. Thank you one and all.

The end is Near:

Hello all (to be honest, we have no idea who ALL is, but greetings none the less),

KeelHaul.ca has been around since 2005 and has been lucky enough to have been able to play many great venues on both of Canada's coasts, record a CD and received AirPlay on a prominent Internet radio podcast. Pretty Damn Cool.

The time for change has come. Our last show EVER will be on St. Paddy's day at the spot where it all began. The Rose and Crown Pub.

We thank everyone for the love and support over the years and wish everyone the very best.

Emails can still be sent to: keel@keelhaul.ca for the next while.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
The KH Crew. Wayne Dave and Sue

We just finished our last show for the year last night. It was an awesome 1/2 way to St. Paddy's Day celebration at our favourite local haunt, The Rose & Crown. It was topped off by a few members of the Delta Police Pipe Band playing a set of tunes before the final set of the night. Spectacular!

KeelHaul.ca had a great summer. A couple of highlights were playing in Coalmont, BC celebrating a 100 year old hotel in a scene that would have rivaled anything ever seen on the old TV show "Real People". Granny's, Bikers, Baby's, Elvis and Chicken Shit Bingo. We would do it again in a heartbeat!

We also made some friends in Nanaimo at Fibber Magee's. It's located in a heritage Train Station, had awesome decor and super friendly folks that work there. With a little luck, we'll get back there early next year, or who knows... maybe a special end of the year gig.

REVERBNATION has been good to us. We have been ranked #2 for a few weeks now. It feels really good to be ranked so high locally, especially when some of the other folks on the list are frieds of ours and deserve it much more than us. Thank-you ReverbNation.

We're putting the 'ol KeelHaul ship into DryDock for the winter and looking forward to seeing everyone when the New Year hits.

Thanks,

We just got back from the beautiful village of Coalmont, BC and want to thank all of our new Best Friends for making it an awesome, unforgetable weekend. Happy 100th to the Coalmont Hotel! -- The whole thing never would have happened if our friends in NewFish hadn't done all the hard work. So, thanks a bunch for that too!

KeelHaul's fall plans are coming together and all will be told in due time. Updates will be posted here and of course on the usual media sites.

Although I realize that our website does not have the most traffic on the internet, I have a very important Public Service request for anyone that may see this post.

A friend of mine has had some very precious music equipment stolen recently, and if you could just click on the link, and be on the look out for any of the gear... well, it would be greatly appreciated.

http://web.me.com/outgolfing/Equipment/Home.html

As a personal note: Any musician knows how attached and personal a piece of equipment, especially something like a guitar, can be. It's been 20 years since my custom made guitar was stolen, and I still look for it. When it was stolen it broke my heart, took my inspiration, stole my passion for electric guitar and a piece of me was gone with it.

Please consider this before taking anything that is not yours.

Thanks,

wayne

As far as News Releases go... We still don't have Buddy. Buddy was everything to the band and it is very difficult to continue on. Not to be over dramatic, but KeelHaul.ca is now Officially on a L O N G - B R E A K !

The Power-Trio may return in the future, but for now their availability is Very Limited. That being said, make us an offer we can't refuse, and we'll be there!

All the Best!

BUDDY NEWS UPDATE:

It has been 1 month since BUDDY's mysterious disappearence. We had a massive flyer campaign that we had High Hopes for, but no phone calls.

Last week Buddy's Sombrero was returned to us! We are not giving up hope yet! Police have taken his hat and dusted it for prints, but unlucky for us, the real world is NOT like CSI. Crushed velvet does not give the cops any fingerprints.

We have not given up hope for Buddy and are sure there will be an email or phone call real soon. Remember: There is a reward for Buddy's safe return... and we are sure he is alive and well somewhere.

Come home Buddy. Come home. KeelHaul.ca can't go on without you!

BUDDY NEWS UPDATE:

It's been over a week, and we still have not heard hide-nor-hair from Buddy and we are getting very worried about him. There have been a series of Bear-nappings in the area lately. One just last week as well in the Surrey area, and another a few months ago right here in Tsawwassen! There is obviously a Serial-bear-napper on the loose, and although the other cases have had happy endings, we fear a Grizzly ending for our Polar friend. It's just a feeling, but we won't give up hope.

If you have any information about Buddy, please pass it along! Remember, there is a Reward.

KH

BOLO ALERT: If anyone finds a small white Polar Bear wearing an even smaller sombrero from Cancun, please return him to us. He answers to Buddy and, when seated, measures about 8 inches high. He's so fluffy!!

March 18, 2011

After a successful St. Paddy's Bash, our Tour Manager, Merch Bear, Mascot and long-time travel companion went missing! Buddy's disappearance from his perch on the banister was noted early this morning after a few pints of beer and has left the crew hoping that the bear-nappers haven't gone and gotten him all tatted and pierced.

If you have any information which may lead to Buddy's return, please contact us or deliver him to the Rose & Crown in Tsawwassen. A reward will be given and no questions will be asked...please...we just want our Buddy back.
