Slappin' Da Bass 

   We welcome back our friend and brother, Jeff Belcher to the line-up! Jeff is one of the founding members of the band and has  rejoined the group as our bass player, replacing Slippers who now is spending more time at home with his family. We're stoked to continue forward with this trio as Belcher brings new energy and a fresh style to our sound; "Slappin' da bass!"

   Work toward our next recording is under way. "We're hard at it, during practice: writing, rehearsing, - rinse, repeat... and shooting games of pool in between."

   The Able Kind is planning to be in the studio, recording their third EP, before the year is out.

So Long and Thanks for All the Great Times! 

   After many years of supporting the music community, The Pawn Shop on Whyte ave. has sadly closed its doors.
   To name a few; some of our most memorable nights there were to see bands such as: The Real McKenzies, The Devil Makes Three, Good Riddance and local greats The Lams, Preying Saints and Mad Bomber Society.  Also to mention, fun nights watching cover-bands take the stage. The Able Kind are proud to have played the reputable Pawn Shop, also.

   - "I remember being there on a sold-out night for Mad Bomber Society. I got on stage to sing a chorus with the band and knew we had to play there, too."

   From local bands stamping their footprint to seasoned touring pros and the fans who came to see them, The Pawn Shop will surely be missed.

Rock the West End 

   The Able Kind melted faces at the Raised Fist Productions' show, this passed Saturday at Rendezvous Pub.

   It was again a sonically diverse line-up bringing people from different walks of life under the same roof. Together, basking in the atmosphere, the crowd seemed amongst peers (at least if only for the night).

   The band is buckling down to work on a new demo to be recorded in the near future. We will keep you posted on the release of an accompanied single.
