For those of you not Familiar with Mr Thornley here is a quick education:

Ian Thornley is a Canadian rock singer, guitarist, and songwriter. Born and raised in Toronto, Thornley studied music at Boston's Berklee College of Music, where he formed his first band, BIG WRECK, in 1993. BIG WRECK signed a US record deal with Atlantic Records and their 1997 debut album, In Loving Memory Of..., which hit 2x Platinum and included 3 massive singles with “The Oaf,” “Blown Wide Open,” and “That Song.” Although the band split after their sophomore album The Pleasure & The Greed in 2001, Ian continued making rock music under the band THORNLEY with consecutive gold albums Come Again and Tiny Pictures, which spawned the hit singles “Make Believe,” “Come Again,” and “So Far So Good.” Ian recently got back together with former Big Wreck guitarist Brian Doherty, and produced the third Big Wreck album, Albatross. The first single from this return to form held the #1 Canadian spot on rock radio for its title track “Albatross”. Ian is regarded as one of Canada’s finest guitar players and this is not a guitar clinic to be missed!

Thanks and hope to see as many of you out as possible!!
