EDGE

BAND BIO

BACKGROUND

EDGE is a four piece rock band from Summerside PEI. Members include Chris Ahern on lead vocals & guitar, Moe Hashie on drums & vocals, Andy Gallant on bass & vocals and Jason Arsenault on lead guitar & vocals. The band formed in 1999, but the guys have actually been friends and played music together most of their lives. This strong friendship and musical connection has been a big factor in the band’s longevity and popularity.

MUSIC

EDGE quickly gained a reputation playing popular cover songs with energy and musical tightness not seen in many other venues at the time; thus they quickly became a local favourite playing clubs and special events across the province. In August 2005, EDGE released their debut CD entitled “REVELATION”. Their original music is described as both fresh and familiar, a product of numerous musical influences from classic rock anthems to modern day rock hooks. The CD was well received by radio stations across the Maritimes and spawned three top 5 East Coast Countdown singles: “STAR”, “BACK 2 ME”, and the #1 single “I CAN’T SEE YOU”.

The band continues to perform live shows and work on original music. They are hoping to complete several songs for digital release in the coming year.

AWARDS

The band was a double winner at the 2006 Music PEI Awards Gala, taking home two trophies: “Entertainer of the Year” and “Weekend Warrior of the Year”.

EDGEFEST

After performing for several years, EDGE was looking to bring more of a “big show” feel to the local music scene. In 2007 they created a series of concerts in Summerside which they appropriately called “Edgefest”. The series features several shows per year bringing some of the most popular bands on P.E.I. together on a big stage. Now entering the seventh year, the series continues to draw large crowds.
