Hey Everyone!! Our CD Release Parties were a HUGE amount of fun and success! Thank you to everyone who came and supported us and helped out. We are feeling the love, BIG TIME! So many people went home with our new CD Walk On along with t-shirts, stickers and tattoos and many folks have given us rave reviews. Thanks!

We just posted a new song on our MySpace page! Plus, check out our YouTube site to see us performing one of our new songs, Dino Rap LIVE from the Gabriola Island Community Hall. So much fun!

Our First Blog!!

September 8th, 2008

Hey everyone!

Tina here! We’re doing all sorts of fun stuff lately and thought we’d set up this funky blog thingy to let you know what’s happening!

Summer time was so busy for The Kerplunks. We traveled all over this beautiful province of BC playing in some really cool places. In June, we drove all the way to Smithers BC and played at the Midsummer Music Festival. Then we came back to Southern BC and played at some wonderful outdoor events, music festivals and parties. Check out our photo site to see some more pictures! We met all sorts of great people and had a great time.

School is in again! That means The Kerplunks will be touring some schools in BC in the coming months. We will for sure be coming to Brechin Elementary School in Nanaimo at 9:00am on November 17th. Then the same day we’ll be heading up to Courtenay to play at Puntledge Park Elementary School at 1:30. Watch out for a Rocky Mountain Tour in March. We love to travel!

Some exciting news! The Kerplunks are nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award for Outstanding Children’s Recording! Yay! This means that we get to go all the way to Edmonton for the Gala Awards Ceremony and hopefully play some shows as well. Stay tuned!

More news! The Kerplunks are having a new website built right now! We’ll let you know when it’s done. We can’t wait!

Here are some websites where you can go and see fun photos, listen to songs and find out where The Kerplunks are playing next.
