YEG Battle 

   YEG Music is currently in the midst of hosting their Compete With The Beat competition and we're in it. October 21st was the first round of elimination in the battle. There were seven bands filling the atmosphere at Moonshiners with sweet grooves and the crowd was diggin' it! Pool sharks in the back were making their shots as the bartenders were busy pouring theirs. The audience cheered on every band with the enthusiasm of comradery; the mood was welcoming.

   Every band did their thing and all sounded great, but there were only two that would move on to the finals; The Able Kind was on top as one of them.

   -Shout-out to YEG Music and Moonshiners for putting on the event (it was a great time), and especially to the talented local bands and the patrons who came out to support it! It was a hip night.

- we will be announcing the finals show once we have tickets available. In the meantime, check our "upcoming shows" link on the site and catch a TAK set before the holiday season.



   Check the Upcoming Shows section of the site, we are going to be busy until the new year. We will be posting dates and locations as they are confirmed.

   Hardcopies of the new record are in process... Artwork and printing of the new EP, 3.0 are in the works and will be available at some local record stores - and of course on our table at shows - once complete.

   If you cannot wait for your hardcopy, pick-up 3.0 digitally, now, at: iTunes (link at top of page), Google Play, Spotify and is also available on many other music download sites.

What's Up 

   The band has joined the YEG Music Battle of Bands! The Able Kind will be playing at Moonshiners in Stony Plain on October 21 in the battle's first round of elimination. Advance tickets will be announced once available.

   Songs from the new EP, 3.0, are available on some online stores and will be fully released once the process is complete. There are 5 tracks on the record, so check back with your online store if only part of it is currently up.

We Come From Garageland 

   We are running a "gofundme" page to help keep up with the costs of furthering our band. The Able Kind is more than a mere hobby of ours; it is very much a part of our lives and appreciated by others.

   As an independent band trying to step out of the garage, we are exploring avenues to support our passion and dream. This means finding ways to help cut the out-of-pocket cost of gas and food to tour and to record.

   - We are an independent group of musicians - not wealthy rockstars. Any help is appreciated.

Let there be Rock! 

Good news everyone!  

We have finished getting our new music ready and it will be available for purchase soon.  In the meantime please visit our music section and take a listen to two of our new tracks, "This Radio" and "The Snake".  The latter was co-written by our good friend Ben Hooke.  If you like the lyrics to the snake check out Hooke's Facebook page for up and coming shows and music.

Keep on Rockin' friends!
