Did you know that Trooper released their first album on this day – Canada Day – in 1975? What could be more fitting for Canada’s Greatest Party Band than to have today be their 45th anniversary! It’s been 45 years of touring back and forth across this vast country – from East Coast kitchen parties, to High North pow wows, to Prairie bush parties and West Coast beach parties – meeting Canadians of all cultures and ways of life and being welcomed, into cities, towns and communities, like long lost family. As Rick Mercer once said: "There are many symbols and institutions we are all proud of in Canada – socialized medicine, the invention of ice hockey, the discovery of Insulin, to name a few … but perhaps no one person or thing says 'Canada' like Trooper." The band is proud and thankful to have shared countless adventures and memories with their fellow Canadians. This 45th anniversary milestone is one that they gratefully share with all of you, so… HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! Please tell us about your favourite/funniest/most inspiring Trooper memory in the comments. Trooper can't wait 'til the day they can once again enjoy new musical adventures with you all.
