Best Local Cover Band


Pardon the pun, but members from Shameless aren’t ashamed to share their band motto, “The more you drink, the better we get.” Or perhaps it’s the sheer hard work that makes the energetic cover band the best of its kind for the third year in a row. The group knows upwards of 100 songs and plays more than 200 times a year throughout Atlantic Canada and Ontario. “A good cover band plays the songs well and has a good time doing it,” says lead singer Shawn Birt. “There are times when it starts to feel like a job, but then you think, ‘Hey, it’s better than delivering pizzas.’”

Runners-up: Signal Hill, The Mellotones
