Fully Completely Hip: Tragically Hip Tribute
Fully Completely Hip: Tragically Hip Tribute
Just a stones throw from the birthplace of Canada’s most iconic band, Fully Completely Hip hail from the small town of Cornwall Ontario, Canada

After leaving his full time band the Trench Town Oddities in late 2016, frontman Sean Harley knew he wanted to do something new and exciting. He’d been toying with the idea of putting together some type of tribute act but was torn as to which one he really wanted to do. Having a few ideas lined up, things did not begin to crystallize until after seeing the Tragically Hip on tv for their historical concert from Kingston Ontario Canada on Aug 20th 2016. Being a fan of the Hip since he was a teenager, Sean had short listed the Hip (and a few unmentionables) as possible projects but sitting through that show and remembering all the great songs the band had to offer made the decision easy.

In the early months of 2017, on a cold Canadian winters night, Sean gathered together an unlikely group musicians to jam. Even after the first song, the group of musical misfits knew they were onto something special. Made up of seasoned musicians, Fully Completely Hip consisting of fellow ex-Oddities drummer Randy Lalonde, multi-musician Ron Piquette (Winston Marley, Beyond the Void) on rhythm Guitar, Eric Andrasi (Trendy Assholes “Offspring Tribute”) on lead guitar, and Matt Leger (Red Flag) on Bass.

Having hit the road hard in 2017, the band played many markets in the North East including New York and Vermont as well as Ontario and Quebec on the Canadian side. Having played a mixture of club shows, casinos and festivals, the band has already established themselves as one of the premier Tragically Hip Tribute acts and continue to gain new fans at every appearance. Fully Completely Hip are the real deal! Not only will audiences be treated to a great selection of songs from the Hip library but the band is visually pleasing too, bringing to the stage the theatrics and visuals that make the Hip the Hip. It goes without saying that if you are a fan of the Tragically Hip, then you don’t want to miss Fully Completely Hip!

Near North
Built on a foundation of solid songwriting and shared belief in ass-shaking, Near North’s sound has been described as “Bob Dylan stoned at a Pixies concert.” At a recent show, an audience member was compelled to retire to a nearby apartment within earshot and make love; a crowning achievement for any rock group.
