See you all next year! New songs, new drummer... it’s going to be good.
Also, we are still searching for a drummer to take the place of those that have flown the coop (to Berklee School of Music for Michael, Edmonton mostly for Aleks), in the meantime we’re working on new tunes and have some full-on professionals we can call for gigs. If you know a drummer who may be interested, let us know! And there are a couple of new songs in the works, arranging and composing, practicing and rehearsing...
Friday’s show is a private show for the clients of the Drop In Centre. We are donating our music and reports are it’s a lot of fun. Even though it’s a private show, we can add you to the guest list. If you’ve never been there, this may be your chance. Send us a note using the "Contact" link at the bottom of every page on the website.
Saturday’s show is at the Rosedale Hall from 7:00PM to 10:00PM. Tickets from firstname.lastname@example.org. The $30 price includes your meal (at 7:30), one drink, and the music. It’s a silent auction fundraiser for the Rosedale Tennis Club, and you will be hard pressed to find a better bunch of guys than the people in the Rosedale Tennis Club.
Russ Gauthier from False Flag will be drumming for us at both shows!
Thank you to everyone who made our summer so great. All the fans, the passersby, the people who booked us for festivals, the Lemon Bucket Orkestra and ContainR, friends and family, supportive businesses and communities, etc. etc.
This is your city, this is our love song for you and Calgary. Enjoy!
The next day we play the Rosedale Tennis Clubs "Light It Up" fundraising gala. There will be great tennis, dinner and a drink, and some outdoor and indoor music, for $30. We plan to mix it up with some traditional New Orleans in the late afternoon, and revert to our pop/rock dance in the evening.
In the meantime, next week we will play a busking show Aug 20 in Kensington, weather permitting. Hope you can come out, this will be Michael’s last show of the summer before he takes off back to Berklee School of Music in the fall. Watch twitter for last minute info.
AND AND AND AND our video will be dropping soon. It’s got a lot of great outdoor footage, really showing off our fine city and the fun we’ve had all summer. We can’t wait!
After another the treacherous water crossing, we hung out and watched the sun set:
and finished the night on The Yardhouse patio. What a great night! Thank you to the hundreds who stopped, watched, and applauded!
Next up: Aug 2nd Saturday in Inglewood, 4PM outdoor show with Open Streets Calgary.
We’re looking for some extras for background in the video! It’s a love song, so if you have someone you love (not necessarily romantically), bring them along, you can hold hands or sit close to each other.
Check our latest tweets here on on our twitter page for last minute info.

There are some great street performers at Sunfest, so come early, and stay late. Hope to see you!
We also need:
* bouncers (just hang around and look official, mostly, as the band will collect the cover charge)
* merch people (sell CDs and stuff)
* compost and recycling diverters (hang out by the waste recycling bins and help people decide where to put their stuff.)
We are calling for volunteers for the Stampede Hangover Picnic! on July 15 with the visiting Lemon Bucket Orkestra. Positions needed:
1) Cover charge collector
2) Merch girl or Merch boy (all ages)
3) Promo help, we’ve ordered 1000 postcard size announcements. If you can drop some off with your friends, contact us and we’ll set you up.
If you love Stampede, party hard, so you’re ready for the hangover picnic. If you hate Stampede, this is the thing you need on your calendar to keep you sane over the next week.
AND WE WILL HAVE OUR CD for SALE. Bring money for the bands, and an extra $5 for the CD. If you can’t make it to the Hangover Picnic, we can mail you out the CD for an extra $2 shipping, just contact us.
We will have our first CD for sale. If you want one, bring $5.
If you want the very first one, labeled “the very first CD” in sharpie and signed by us, bring $50.
There are many things going on downtown on Canada Day. Check the Official Website for the list.

There are a lot of fun things coming up on the Delirium SPB schedule!.
Most importantly, the amazing Lemon Bucket Orkestra are coming to Calgary! We have a show scheduled with them on July 15. It will be an outdoor show, a Stampede Hangover Picnic. There will be bicycles, a parade, dancing, etc. etc. etc. Save the date July 15 and watch this space for details! This will be a pay-what-you-can event, not a free event, to support the 16 piece LBO on their Canada Tour.
June 27: Free Impromptu Busking Show location TBA
July 1: Video Shoot Day and Free Show in Chinatown at the Street Festival
Calgary Stampede July 3 to July 13. Lots of busking! LBO arrive July 10. We have country tunes!
Please use Twitter or our Mailing List to stay informed, so that you don’t miss any of this! (Facebook won’t show you all of our posts...)
Seems it’s a popular place for grad photos this time of year too... Celebration!
We’ll return triumphantly to Eau Claire (the circle amphitheatre by the windmill) on Sunday May 25, around 3PM. (If there’s some other event going on there, check the Peace Bridge just a few blocks West.)
Hope to see you! Bring your camera and shoot photos and video, so you can upload it for us. Bring your dogs, kids, grandparents, etc.
Also, we have Aleks, Balkan Super Party Drummer, joining the band. And Michael is back from Berklee School of Music! Stay tuned for upcoming busking shows. And get ready for Stampede, when “SPB” stands for “Stampede Party Band”.

We’re finding it annoying that most of the bands in Searchlight are classic guitar-rock bands. Search google for Searchlight CBC Brass and few pages pages show up that aren’t ours! Search twitter for #Searchlight brass or #Searchlight trombone and we’re the only ones that show up!
Please vote for us to show CBC that Canadians like their brass!
1) Go to the CBC Calgary page for Searchlight http://music.cbc.ca/#/Searchlight-Homestretch
2) Type “Delirium” in the search box in the middle, under “Calgary (Homestretch)”
(the one that looks like this! There’s another search box at the top but that won’t take you to the voting page)
3) Click the green “VOTE” button next to our song “Believe In You”.
You can vote once per day!
Thanks for your support.
We’re also playing, of course, along with Hats and Black Ties, and Class Action. These two bands are the mainstay of ska in Calgary. It’s worth coming out just for them!
If you’re on Facebook please “join” the event here https://www.facebook.com/events/699724430058373/ and tweet/share/pin etc, we want to get the crowds out!
