28 Minutes With Bleeker Cole, Taylor & Mike!

June 10, 2020

Remember a band called Bleeker Ridge? Well, they’re now known as simply, “Bleeker”. They’re a kick ass Canadian rock band from Orillia, Ontario and they deserve your attention.

We recently jumped on a 28 minute Zoom session with Taylor & Cole Perkins (brothers) and Mike Vandyk. Not sure where Chris Dimas was for this one.

A quick Cole-notes history of the band:

  • Signed to Roadrunner Records.
  • Toured Canada with Airbourne & Social Code in 2010.
  • Toured the Canadian leg of the Jagermiester Music tour in 2011 with My Darkest Days, Papa Roach and Buckcherry.
  • Changed their name to “Bleeker” in January 2016.
  • Nominated for Breakthrough Group of the Year at The 2017 Juno Awards.

And when we jumped on Zoom with guys, we talked about binging Dragons Den & Nailed It, the creepy Jeffrey Epstein special, a career highlight with Sublime, playing on Hometown Hockey, have aliens visited? COVID19 came up, as did Hulk, Black Panther & Iron Man. We talked about seeing The Doobie Brothers & U2. The genius of Genesis, Queen & Oasis. We talked about superpowers, family, the untouchable The Beatles & Led Zeppelin & lots more.

Hope you enjoy this Youtube video. Share with someone who might too!
