Description

Music Runs Through It presents The BackYard Devils
as part of the Up Close & Personal Series at Dolan's Pub
Wednesday, February 27, 2019 at 7:30PM

The story of the BackYard Devils started when lead singer and lyricist Erik Arsenault decided to return to the East Coast after spending a few years out West. The roadtrip back proved to be much fruitful when the singer and his brother Rémi (vocals, bass) decided to start a dirty country and bluegrass band that would cater to the young and old. They recruited Christien Belliveau, a talented and highly demanded guitar player with a love for roots music and Dillon Robicheau, a seasoned bluegrass mandolin and banjo player out of Nova Scotia to help create the vision. With a swinging guitar rhythm, doghouse bass slaps, mashing guitar solos and lightning quick banjo and mandolin lines, The BackYard Devils managed to hammer down their own sound in an old fashion style, just like the brothers had planned. The self-titled album was released in May of 2011 was extremely well received and the Devils quickly became an instant party concert favorite. They were awarded three 2011 Music NB Awards (Emerging Artist, Country Album of the Year & Group Recording of the Year). They spent the following years raising hell with their foot stomping music all over Canada, the UK, Ireland, Switzerland, France and the US. They have released their second album, Honky Tonk Heartbreaker at the end of 2014.
