Cornwall Ontario — It was an intimate and enjoyable evening for country music fans as some members of the band Switchgear played an acoustic set at La Maison Tavern on Saturday night.
Jamie Jarvo, Jason Sauve, and Scott Reasbeck hit the stage playing a mix of covers and originals.
The band has made a name for itself in the region since debuting in 2010, recording an album, sharing the stage with notable bands, and getting radio air play.
This intimate concert on Saturday was a contrast and change for Switchgear. The band has experience playing bigger stages at various music festivals including Lift-Off.
Switchgear has opened up for legendary acts such as Burton Cummings, Dean Brody, Emerson Drive, Doc Walker, Small Town Pistols, Good Brothers, Greg Hanna, and Hoyt Hughes.
Fans of the band can purchase their CD at shows or purchase it online.
SwitchGear’s independently released debut CD entitled “Country in the City” is available through digital distribution on itunes, Emusic, CD Baby, Bandcamp and Reverbnation. It can also be streamed on Google Play with a subscription to the service.
The band has also enjoyed radio air play on stations like 97.7 the Beach, 96.5 wild Country, MYFM, and they have been featured on the CJSS 1019.FM Breakfast Show, and OWN Network’s show “All For Nothing”.
See Switchgear live in Concert again on Boxing Day. They play live at La Maison Tavern on December 26th.
