In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the album Big Blue Sky, Saskatchewan’s own The Northern Pikes are hitting the road with stops across Canada, including one at the Burton Cummings Theatre, November 23.
The Northern Pikes original lineup was spawned from the ashes of three local groups, “The Idols”, “Doris Daye” and “17 Envelope”, and consisted of Jay Semko (Vocals, Guitar), Merl Bryck (Vocals, Guitar), Bryan Potvin (Guitars) and Glen Hollingshead (Bass), who left the band in 1985. At this point Jay moved back to playing bass and numerous drummers came and went until June of 1986, when Don Schmid (The Idols) joined to make it a permanent quartet.
