STAYING IN TUNE with AGAINST THE WIND Canada’s Most Celebrated Bob Seger Experience!

Market Hall Performance Centre was a perfect location to introduce Peterborough to ATW Against The Wind ~ Canada’s most celebrated Bob Seger Experience.  The ATW fans simply enjoyed this 2 hour showcase, truly the real deal
featuring the fantabulous 9 piece rock n roll ensemble.  Th legions of fans in the audience were just a rockin’ on their feet dancing in the isles, in between the theater seats, right thru this eye popping showcase.  Many hours must have went into  perfecting this Tribute.  Each mastering their instrumental crafts, right down to the gritty sounding vocals thanks to featured front man, singer/song-writer and guitarist Steve Dickinson.  You can tell that Dickinson had a strong musical connection with Alto Reed, the founding member of the Silver Bullet Band, as you could hear that potent influence as he sang.  These incredibly talented Toronto area musicians, nailed it, replicating the ultra professional sound, giving us Seger Fever.
There are sensational acts on the circuit, but, this stage show is unlike another, as their remarkable bang on sound a like show, instantly took us on a stroll down memory lane thru the Bob Seger catalogue of
60’s and 70’s & good ole 80’s treasures like: “Feel Like A Number”, “Her Strut”, “Like a Rock”, “Against The Wind”, “Old Time Rock & Roll”, “Turn The Page”, “Katmandu”, “Night Moves” and
“Hollywood Nights”.
This act is a hidden gem now discovered.  They guarantee an exclusive and extraordinary fun filled
kick ass experience that is truly inspiring, enthusiastic & carefree.   The goosebumps were plentiful when you heard the audience singing song after song along with Dickinson.  A truly decadent event.

perform songs with pure emotion.  Whether it is a soulful, funky rock of “Come to Poppa” or the retrospective-ness of “Like a Rock,” Seger has the ability to reach deep inside of himself and release pure human emotions that everyone has felt at one time or another in their life.  One can’t help but relate to the songs that he sings, whether they be happy (“Old Time Rock & Roll”), nostalgic (“Mainstreet”), rebellious (“Turn the Page”) or reflective (“Against the Wind”).  This is a talent that one is born with, and while skills can be honed, Bob Seger has a God-given greatness within him.
