He is very enthusiastic.

Here's one of Meaghan and Stuart singing together

We bought this cheesy snack down in Maine. We didn't think we'd make it through the bin, but shamefully we did

Stuart at Dr. Disc in Orono, Maine
Dr. Disc had a great Vinyl section and we all walked out with some good stuff to add to our collections
We went for dinner in Bangor, to Sea Dog - a great restaurant and brewery. John and Ted order the beer sampler
The longest covered bridge in the world is in Hartland, NB
yeah, it's pretty long
we ran into some bad weather in New Brunswick
so we ended up staying an extra night in Miramichi
This is the snow piled up outside lighting guy Brad Scrutton's hotel window
This is the side of the hotel
We didn't have to cancel any shows...
...even though it looked like we might have to (you can barely see our bus!)
Luckily our bus driver Mark Wight was there to shovel us out
Here is Stuart at the Imperial Theatre in Saint John, NB. It is one of his favourite theatres in the country
Here's the Imperial from the outside
We always look forward to visiting Saint John because it means we get to visit the Saint John City Market
We love the smoked salmon strips at Lord's Seafood in the Market
...and of course the octopus!
You can also buy bags of dulce (seaweed) there.
Saint John is also home to one of our favourite record stores - Backstreet Records
Stuart browsing in Backstreet
We loved this little cafe just outside Antigonish, NS - the Dragonfly Cafe. Awesome lattes and really good homemade oatmeal
We had a show in Moncton, NB the night of the East Coast Music Awards. Matt won two awards that night: Male Solo Recording of the Year and Blues Recording of the year.
He was playing with us that night, so he couldn't be at the ECMAs. So when we heard he had won - we decided to present him with his awards onstage. We didn't have the real awards...so we had to make do with industrial fire extinguishers
