For Hedley The Show Must Go!

Steve Russell - Staff Photographer

Canadian Band Hedley took to the stage at the Air Canada Centre last night.

Very fun to shoot, the band was beyond energetic, the stage was well lit and most importantly the music was at a half decent level!

The band recently played their hit song "Cha Ching" at the closing ceremony of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. A local gig for them, they originated in Abbotsford, British Columbia. They are named for a nearby town that was for sale.

The lead singer, Jacob Hoggard, was top three on the second season of Canadian Idol. The rest of the band is Tommy Mac on bass, Dave Rosin on guitar and Chris Crippin on drums.
