“ ‘Allo, music lovers…, From the streets of Toronto, to the streets of London, now, here to kick your ass… The Pat Travers Band!!”
It’s early 1979, and the Pat Travers Band have just been introduced and subsequently recorded for what would become one of the slickest and hottest, Live guitar-rock albums ever committed to vinyl. ‘Live! Go for What You Know’ was a huge success on both sides of the pond, acclaimed by their musical peers, fans, and music critics alike. It was high-energy. It was electric. It was lightning in a bottle. The album, much like the Canadian musician himself, remains an influence for a whole generation of guitar slingers. This is the stuff Legends are made of.
Toronto born Patrick Henry Travers has delivered one tasty release after another. From the powerhouse, rockin’ 70’s sound that launched his career, to the classy melodic eighties rock before a blues period in the nineties, but Pat isn’t looking to the past for his musical future. As the second decade of the Millennium dawned, Pat and the Band show no sign of letting up. The proof of the future are safe in the eight hands of Mr. Travers, second Guitarist Kirk McKim, Bassist Rodney O’Quinn and longtime sticksman, Sandy Gennaro.
“When I was contacted by Frontiers to record a new original studio album they asked me if I could create some music reminiscent of my earlier albums that were done in the U.K. and South Florida in the late ‘70’s early ‘80’s.” says Pat. “What made those records different was that I was allowed the luxury of spending some time in the studio without any outside influences and that’s when I could get really creative. Frontiers Records let me have the time I needed to work on the songs and production. Also the beginning of 2012 was a particularly creative period for me and I believe I have written some of my best material ever for ‘Can Do’ : a classic PT record ! ».
This Pat Travers Band is also one seriously tight rockin’ unit, and live, they always deliver.
From the streets of Toronto, to the streets of London, to the streets of the WORLD, now, here to kick your ass… The Pat Travers Band!!
