Headpins, Toronto & Helix to Play Hard Rock Casino Vancouver

COQUITLAM, BC (April 14, 2015)

Three legendary Canadian bands – Headpins, Toronto and Helix – will be rocking the stage at Hard Rock Casino Vancouver on Friday, June 5, 2015.

Headpins’ journey began in Vancouver in 1979 when Chilliwack band members, Brian McLeod and Ab Bryant started the group as a “side project”. Rounded out by drummer Bernie Aubin and singer Darby Mills, they released their debut album, Turn It Loud in 1982. The platinum-selling album featured the hit single, “Don’t It Make Ya Feel”. Their follow-up album, Line of Fire earned Multi-Platinum status and spawned the hit singles, “Just One More Time” and “Feel It (Feel My Body)”.

Formed in the late 70’s by singer Holly Woods and guitarist Brian Allen, Toronto released their first album, Lookin’ for Trouble in 1980 followed by their second album, Head On in 1981. That same year, they were honoured with a Juno nomination for “Most Promising Group of the Year”. The band’s third album, Get It on Credit produced the hit single, “Your Daddy Don’t Know” while reaching the top five in Canada.

Founded in 1974 in Kitchener, Helix has gone through many line-up changes through the years with frontman Brian Vollmer remaining the sole member. They have released numerous albums with four being certified Gold and two being certified Platinum. Their hit singles include “Heavy Metal Love”, “(Make Me Do) Anything You Want”, “Deep Cuts the Knife”, “The Kids Are All Shakin’” and the iconic “Rock You”.
