I See Rowboats North By Northeast Toronto ON June 11 to 15
I See Rowboats appreciated the excellent sound treatment they received at the Cameron House. It was the perfect venue for their multi-instrumental East coast rock and I wish I knew the soundman’s name to give kudos for keeping everything balanced and under control. I was tempted to call them orchestral rock at first, but really, I See Rowboats are a straight-up pop rock act that choose their instruments and arrangements wisely. Utilising viola, violin, cello and keys alternately with tastefully played bass, guitar and drums, the group performed with passionate professionalism and the over-capacity crowd responded in kind. It was leavening to see the band geeks dominate the night, even earning an encore, which gave the band a chance to demonstrate its diversity, opting to end with a track composed almost entirely of vocals and percussion.
