The Rockwater Grill and Bar will see Wide Mouth Mason perform on October 14.

The band, which is made up of Shaun Verreault, Safwan Javed, and Gordie Johnson, has been performing since coming together in rural Alberta in 1995.

Over the years the band has garnered fans in Canada, Europe, and China. They became one of the first North American rock bands to tour China in the 21st century.

Wide Mouth Mason’s approach to jamming has earned them two invitations to the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland and tours with AC/DC, ZZ Top and The Rolling Stones.

In July of 2011 the band released No Bad Days.

“We’ve called the record ‘No Bad Days’ because it perfectly describes the experience we had making it,” says singer/ guitarist Shaun Verreault. “We worked on our third record, ‘STEW’ with Gordie as producer. When we decided to make a more organic ‘live off the floor’ kind of record, we knew he was ‘That Guy’ and we couldn’t be more excited about the results!”

“The band’s collective influences really came together on No Bad  Days,” says producer/ bassist Gordie Johnson, “you can hear everything from The Allman Brothers to the Isley Brothers.”

Previous albums have yielded such hit singles as “Midnight Rain,” “My Old Self,” “Why,” “Smile,” and “Change.”
