It goes like this: two million records, a couple dozen hits, sold-out coliseums across Canada, a Juno Award (Canada’s Grammy) for Band of the Year. The Vancouver Sun called them “Canadian rock heroes of the first order … the best performing band in Canada.” If you need reminding, this was Trooper a decade or so ago. And what made them what they were then is still there now: great performances and great pop songwriting.
Incredibly, one out of every forty Canadians owns a copy of Trooper’s 6X Platinum album; “Hot Shots”. The band has performed thousands of shows in virtually every city and town in Canada and are the first Canadian band to successfully tour from coast to coast in their home country.
