Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

SYD­NEY — Car­leton Stone Drives the Big Wheel has earned the right to show­case at one of the coun­try’s big­gest an­nual mu­sic events.

The five-piece Cape Bre­ton pop-rock group re­cently came out ahead of 14 other Nova Sco­tian acts in the Delta Ho­tels Bat­tle to Cana­dian Mu­sic Week, pre­sented by Mol­son Cana­dian. The bat­tle was juried by in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als with bands judged on mu­si­cian­ship, stage pres­ence, mar­ketabil­ity and over­all im­pact of per­for­mance. Car­leton Stone Drives the Big Wheel won their pre­lim­i­nary round Feb. 2 and re­turned to Hal­i­fax the fol­low­ing week where they were de­clared com­pe­ti­tion win­ners, Feb. 9.

The event was pre­sented through a part­ner­ship be­tween Delta Ho­tels, Mu­sic Nova Sco­tia and The Sea­horse Tav­ern, with the win­ner re­ceiv­ing a cov­eted show­case on the Mu­sic Nova Sco­tia Stage: En­ter the Tiki, tak­ing place as part of Cana­dian Mu­sic Week in Toronto, Ont. from March 1014. Car­leton Stone Drives the Big Wheel will per­form the 11:15 p.m. set on March 13.

The Mu­sic Nova Sco­tia Stage: En­ter the Tiki is an in­dus­try and pub­lic show­case that draws the top in­ter­na­tional and na­tional mu­sic in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als each year. The show­case takes place at the leg­endary Rivoli on Queen Street West in down­town Toronto. Past per­form­ers in­clude Win­ter­sleep, Matt Mays, Joel Plas­kett, J.P. Cormier, In-Flight Safety, Tom Fun Or­ches­tra, Jenn Grant, Dog Day, Alert The Medic, and Share.
