The Watchmen, formed in 1988 in Winnipeg, MB are vocalist Daniel Greaves, guitarist Joey Serlin, bassist Ken Tizzard and drummer Sammy Kohn. Their show will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their quintessential, platinum certified sophomore album “In The Trees” - which was reissued in September 2014. Arguably one of the most commercially successful Canadian bands of the mid to late 90s, The Watchmen saw three of their albums certified gold – McLaren Furnace Room (1992), Silent Radar (1998) and Slomotion (2001) – in addition to the platinum certification of “In The Trees”.
“In The Trees” (Deluxe Edition) includes heavy hitting singles ‘Boneyard Tree,’ ‘All Uncovered’ and ‘Lusitana,’ reminding all of us of the hauntingly soulful vocals of Greaves, complimented by Serlin’s melodic guitar and Kohn’s hypnotic percussion. This past September, “Uncovered: The Story of The Watchmen”, which combines extensive research and unfettered access to the band to tell the story of The Watchmen’s twenty-plus years on the road – was released and captivated the genuine spirit of the group.
