THUNDER BAY – ENTERTAINMENT – Wiggins Pro-Ductions will host What’s His Age Again: Farewell Show for Danny Robere, Saturday, July 12 at Black Pirates Pub (215 Red River Road). The night will feature a special pop-punk set by Boy Castle, a Cover Show 14 encore performance from Artists as Thrice, and Thunder Bay’s one-man-band, Jean-Paul De Roover.
After years of playing countless shows in over a dozen bands, local musician Danny Robere will be packing his guitars and moving down to Toronto later this summer to further his career and expanding his web development company, BOLT Media. With offices already established in Vancouver and Thunder Bay, Toronto was the next logical step for Danny and his business.
Business aside, Robere has played an important roll in the development of the Thunder Bay music scene for well over a decade. He’s been apart of several rock and punk bands over the years, including Boy Castle, Empire Lies, Andrew J. Edwards Band, Zack & the Morrises, Stradivari, Not At Fault and many many more. He’s also been a vital part of the popular Cover Show series, hitting the stage 31 times, the most any single musician has ever performed. “I think the first time I met Danny was at Not At Fault show,” explains event promoter, Jimmy Wiggins, “it was sometime in the early 2000s when I had just started Wiggins Productions. He’s one of those guys that you just don’t forget. One of the friendliest and most genuine people I’ve ever met in the scene, and one hell of a guitar player. The guy’s got chops!”
Although he will be missed, it’s fairly safe to say that Thunder Bay has not seen the last of Danny Robere. “You never know where the path of life will take you,” explains Robere, “but Thunder Bay is home and will always be home.”
