Who is the Treble?
The Treble is a four piece band from Winnipeg Manitoba consisting of Mark Brusegard [Vocals], Colin McTavish [Piano], Graeme Woods [Guitar], Pat Hansen [Bass] and Dana Jerlo [Drums]. Having been together for shortly over a year, the boys from the Treble have encountered significant success.
Inspired by their hometown of Winnipeg, the Treble released their first ep Shaking Hands and Taking Names in the summer of 2011 to a sold out crowd at the Academy.
Why is The Treble cool?
The Treble is downright no-questions-asked cool, and let me tell you why.
This summer, while working at Quest on Meadowood I greeted a pair of gentlemen who walked into the store. The two men made a simple request, some mic’s and mic stands needed for rental. Up to this point the transaction was pretty standard, until I asked why they need the gear that is… The two gentlemen replied to my question by outlining their newest “tour” idea. They continued on to tell me that they were intending to play 24 shows in 24 hours. This idea blew my mind, however, the concept was simple enough. The Trebled toured the city playing in/at 24 venues and landmarks to raise funds and awareness for famine relief in the Horn of Africa.
In collaboration with the Canadian Red Cross, the Treble played their 24 shows and collected donations which went toward raising funds in support of relief efforts in the Horn of Africa.
That night, after meeting Mark and Graeme I went to one of their shows and was thoroughly impressed as they played to a packed lounge, everyone enjoying their tunes.
What’s New With The Treble?
The Treble are releasing a video for their ’24 in 24’ fundraiser on April 1st at the Park Theatre. The video is a documentary of the 24 shows that they played starting at 8pm on October 14th, 2011. The video is being released and sold to generate additional funds for Red Cross Manitoba.
Perhaps it’s their hearts for helping strangers on the other end of the world… or perhaps it is their dashing good looks… Regardless, if you are interested in learning more about The Treble you can visit their Facebook page by clicking here.
