About Bidiniband:
Bidiniband's latest record, In the Rock Hall, features 11 rock and roll songs about thieves, water, God and the movies. Featuring author Dave Bidini – whose 10th book, Writing Gordon Lightfoot, was a 2011 best-seller – the band includes In the Rock Hall's producer Don Kerr, on drums, Doug Friesen (Peter Elkas Band) on bass and Paul Linklater (The Pinecones, Jan and Steve) on electric guitar.

Dave Bidini is likely best known as one of the founding members of the Rheostatics, which performed its final concert in February 2007. Bidini is the author of 10 books, including four books about hockey, and two books for young adults, For Those About to Rock, and For Those About to Write. Other work for young people includes the Rheostatics’ album for kids, Harmelodia.  He also has a couple of films to his credit, including Hockey Nomad, the Gemini award-winning adaptation of his book, Tropic of Hockey. Dave's latest book, Writing Gordon Lightfoot: The Man, the Music and the World in 1972, was released in October 2011.



We celebrate hockey, winter, and all things Canadian with one of Toronto’s liveliest rock bands, Bidiniband. Back for their second straight year at HarbourKIDS: SK8 presented by RBC Play Hockey, Bidiniband will be mining their winter repertoire for songs as hot as chocolate, as cool as ice, and as sharp as the booted blade.
