Happy New Year from the band No More Cries.2016 was a very great year for our band.No More Cries has had a very powerful year of growth and confidence with many new songs written and arranged to a point of recording quality.No More Cries had a string of a dozen great live performances including a great day of music at Bliss Restaurant in west Quesnel the owner and our good friend Jas invited us to his annual Pig Roast event and we played for 3 hrs outdoors to a great revolving very appreciative crowd enjoying the awesome food with live original Rock and Roll for desert.No More Cries was also invited to the annual West Quesnel Market in the park next to the West Park Mall the event started at 4pm and was a wonderful array of food,crafts and music from many artists with a great number of people in the crowd wandering around checking out the local vendors all put together by the West Quesnel Business Association.No More Cries next invite was to play at the West Quesnel Skate Board Park fundraiser it was a very fun day altho the weather was a challenge for all involved No More Cries still performed over 20 original songs for the crowd and helped support local fundraising with the help of KID Productions from Quesnel  who provided the sound.
No More Cries was also thankfully invited on 2 separate occasions to The Bob Inn Ranch west of Quesnel the first time was to celebrate Bobs sons birthday and all the good things that Bob Blaue and his brothers and sisters believe in and that is Peace and Love and the Joy of life.This celebration had No More Cries perform for the good people outdoor on a stage that has so much music history locally to a very grateful group of humans.The second occasion No More Cries was invited to the Bob Inn Days was the annual celebration on going from the early 70s where many people gather for a weekend of good times good food and music we loved sharing the stage with Sundown Spell a very awesome a local group and many other performers that entertained the crowd late into the night on a stage built at the ranch that so many bands and performers have used over the years.One of the most important opportunities that No More Cries is very thankful for is being welcomed to our local club THE OCCIDENTAL owned and operated by the McKillican family Barry,Louise,Brian, David and Holly these folks operate a shining jewel in Quesnel.The Occidental is a major supporter of RCMA River City Music Association who main focus is music in our community by organizing opportunities for local artists and musicians with Open Mic hosted at the Occidental monthly and financial support to individuals who deserve and earn this. RCMA supports music in our local schools with the help of Quesnel Music and the lessons available at this  local business.We thank all the people involved for that.No More Cries is thankful for a recent invite by Barry McKillican to share the stage with a very awesome rock band named MATIUS ROCK from Prince George.This was a great experience for us and we warmed up the stage before Matius Rock delivered their rock and roll show which was awesome with a great group of guys.The RCMA Open Mic event that happens the first Saturday of every month is one of  No More Cries biggest favorites to attend and we have performed many many times this has been our largest opportunity to showcase all our original songs we write and perform for all the local people who attend this event,we perform on the BEST stage and Best Sound within  hundred of miles and that is the stage at the Occidental.Professional high quality LOUD and clear sound provided by Brian McKillican operating the sound board and tech on this great setup.The light show is very professional and a great visual experience second to none in this area.2017 is going to bring more opportunities as we will apply to play a few local music festivals hopefully earning a couple of shows somewhat locally.No More Cries is also working on a double album recording  in process and we are very happy with whats coming out of it so stay tuned for a release of our original songs on a CD in the early 2017 recorded in our own recording studio Wild Bills Studio in Quesnel B.C.
