Triumph update from Rik Emmett

Not a lot going on in Triumph-land these days, but at least the guys seem to be getting along.

"I had a nice dinner with Gil (Moore) and Mike (Levine) on Monday night,” writes Rik Emmett in his latest update. “Lots of discussion and lively chit chat - Gil extended an open invitation to have me and Mike mix Marco’s Secret Songbook at Metalworks. There's a lot of progress on the new Triumph website, and build-up of merch and other stuff. No - no gigs or touring in the immediate future.“

However, Triumph fans in the Toronto-area can see Rik live up close n personal this Saturday:

“I'm doing a promo guest thing at the legendary Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto on January 8, singing a few Triumph songs with the house band at around 10:30 p.m., if it all goes off on time. This is in support of CARAS and the Junos 40th anniversary, as they are having a theme night party celebrating the '80's.”

Also on the Horseshoe bill are 80’s acts The Spoons, Platinum Blonde, Chalk Circle and more. Tickets are $20 advance / $25 at the door.
