#Why the band performs in Winnipeg Juno Week

juno2

The Juno awards are Canada’s Music Awards, where artists and bands are given awards for their artistic or technical achievements in music.  The awards started in 1970 in Toronto and every year were staged at various venues across Toronto – and apart from a few deviations to Vancouver that’s pretty much where it all happened.  The last 15-20 years though have seen the ceremony taking place in different areas, such as Edmonton, Halifax and Winnipeg once before.

There must have been quite a buzz in Winnipeg, Manitoba last week as The Juno Awards were back at the MTS Centre.

 Why Performs on the Juno Pianos

To mark Juno Week at the end of March, seven decorated pianos were spread out around Winnipeg – at both inside and outside locations across the city centre – like MTS Centre, Portage Place Shopping Centre and Old Market Square. The Pianos were part of the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ who launched the “Play Your Part”  program – the pianos were decorated by local artists and at risk youth and are just there for people to play and if they like to upload their photos to social networks using the hash tag #playyourpart.

Brian Cook and Eric Norquist from The Rock Band Why – Rocked up at the MTS Centre and the Airport where two of the decorated pianos were situated and performed an off the cuff song from the new album “The Leap”  called Do it Scared.

What a little treat those people got!
