VaGiants Canadian Music Week 2004 March 3 to 6, Toronto ON
Published Sep 06, 2007As always, Winnipeg rockers the VaGiants grabbed the audience by its collective throat and turned the dial to "throttle." No shrinking violets, they forced themselves on a crowd crammed up to the stage and made them listen. It took guitarist Craig Bjerring and bassist Brendon Ehinger just a couple of songs before they launched themselves into the crowds welcoming arms. Singer Joanne Rodriguez was suffering from a slight cold, so her voice wasnt the force of nature it usually is, but the pint-sized powerhouse is a magnetic stage presence, especially when shes twirling her black satin pasties.
