This band formed in June 2011. The band is Reese on vocals, jordan on guitar & back up vocals, Gerry on guirat, Russ on bass, and Chris on drums. They formed based on the idea of playing the style of metal they are passionate about. The show this weekend in Hamilton is also their CD release party!

Core is: Core, Paul, Kevin, & Mark. They just recently released their Debut Album. I played the debut track on show 11.

Song: Can You
I was stoked to go see these guys back in August. Sadly things did not fall into place and I missed the CD release show. But things are all in place and I can’t wait to see them this weekend.
These guys are fabulous. Not only have they given me permission to play their music on a number of podcasts, they’ve done bumpers for my show, one for the Justin Wayne show when I played them there, and they’ve done a great one for todays show.
Now based in Guelph, Persist was formed in Toronto in early 2006 by Jerry and Z, The band says that Jerry is the heart and soul of the band. In the four years that Persist have been together, they have grown into one of Canada’s favorite indie hard rock bands! From Toronto to Las Vegas, from BC to Quebec, to see a list of the places they’ve played is to see a list of the hottest venues. They’ve graced the stages at Legendary Toronto venues like The Sound Academy, Velvet Underground, The Reverb, the Docks, Jeff Healeys Roadhouse, Lee’s Palace, Bovine Sex Club, the Opera House and the Hard Rock Cafe. Across Canada, they’ve performed at the Burton Cummings Theatre in Winnipeg, the Shaw Centre in Edmonton and The Odeon in Saskatoon. And through their recent tour with Five Finger Death Punch and Soulfly, they played their first ever US show at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas!
Among their many accomplishments, Persist have had the fortune to open for such amazing bands such as Five Finger Death Punch, Soulfly, All that Remains, Hate Breed, Rains, Die Mannequin and Helix, and have had their music featured on television such as BikerTV and have recently acquired licenses for MTV’s Real World Challenge and more. They have appeared on a over 50 radio stations - online and terrestrial radio including a recent finish in the top 10 for 97.7 Hitz FM’s 25th Anniversary Party Contest and a recent feature on Hamilton’s Y108! Persist have brought their heart and soul to support several benefit shows including shows to benefit Kisses for Haley, The Sick Kids Hospital and the Missing Children Society.
This is their time. Once you hear their sound, you will never forget it! Once you see them, you will know why they stand tall in the limelight!
PERSIST...and the world will listen!
