A Tradition Continues with The Posse
After a day spent outside at The Loyalist Days in Prescott, it was nice to sit back and be part of a continuation of a family tradition. The Loyalist days has been around since 1977 at the Fort Wellington. Brett Coville’s father used to play the festival with his band, before the festival took an interlude for many years. It was like a continuation of the event though the music.
From the first note, The Posse entertained the people with classic songs which were a lively mix of both country and rock. The audience participated with singing and encouraging songs for the band to play. They did take requests, and even sang Happy Birthday to one of the audience. This band knows how to put on a show.
The people were moving to the music and many were singing along with the band. Although I wasn’t on the dance floor, I couldn’t help but sing along and tap my feet. There were even people dressed in period clothing from the festival. It was an interesting site to see an 1800’s sailor dancing with people in today’s jeans and a t-shirt.
About The Posse
I had the privilege to sit down with The Posse earlier in the day. As I sat with Brett Coville, James Moore, and Randy Clarke I learned a lot about this talented trio. The Posse chose its name in a Tim Horton’s in Brockville and was practicing out of a garage in Domville. The band has a remarkable sound that they bring to the music they play. They even hinted at some original music may be coming out in the future. With their unique sound, I am eager to hear the songs they record. The Posse has opened for many bands, including Blue Rodeo.
The Posse is a band that you will want to check out. You can find where they are playing on their Facebook page. I know I will be attending their events again in the future.
