A great number of the regulars of this blog, particularly the industry folk, know the name Mike Gonek. Â For those of you who don’t, he’s the mind behind the decks and beats of the Weekend Warriors, a group poised to take over more than just the screaming teenage girls that count themselves fans of Brendan Beamish and his DEEEEP Vs (1 of 2 Warriors’ singers), or Jermain Hamilton’s catchy rhyming. Â Many of us have seen Gonek and his partners working incredibly hard over the last four years, so a few of his recent successes have really made me smile.
Just a couple days ago the Weekend Warriors’ track Take Me to LA was featured on MTV’s ‘The Hills’; a big win for the guys!! Congrats! Â You can check that out here, clip #4, 1:25 inÂ http://www.mtv.ca/tvshows/the-hills/video_content.jhtml?id=1612961
On that note, the guys have a show coming up on Friday at Lee’s Palace with 3 other bands. Â Lee’s Palace is a great venue, and it should be a really fun night.
