Album Notes
“This ain’t no symphony,
this is a Rock n’ Roll epiphany,
this IS Blackdog Ballroom!”

“Blackdog Ballroom is one of the most unique bands in the city. Not followers of any particular trend they have their own style”
— T-Mak World

First and foremost Blackdog Ballroom is a Rock & Roll band that resonates an immediate passion. Their music exudes personality and charm highlighted by their exhilarating live performance and evident in their captivating presence.

“Very tight and well structured, seems like a band who knows what they’re doing!”
— Stuart Epps, Producer - OASIS, Led Zeppelin, George Harrison

With the release of their debut album, Blackdog Ballroom are primed for an exciting year. The new release is reminiscent of a time when you couldn't wait to hear what the next song would offer. With an eclectic mix of influence ranging from Pop to Punk, Mod to Motown and Rock to Roll, Blackdog Ballroom have cultivated a distinct blend to create their unique sound.

“Blackdog Ballroom knows all the rules which allows them to break them at will”
— Pezmosis Music Radio

Featuring powerful vocals, slammin’ guitars and a driving rhythm section Blackdog Ballroom's magnetic energy is fuelled by Michael Stanfield. Michael's provocative lyrics, infectious rhythms and insightful themes are perfectly complimented by Mat Power's inspired lead guitar with Rob DeSimone and Hayley Carro holding down the pulse and backbeat of the band. Since their formation Blackdog Ballroom have experienced such accolades as Michael being named a winner in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for the Blackdog Ballroom song " Alright ", three times nominated for " Best Live Band " at the Toronto Independent Music Awards ( TIMAS ), an invitation to perform at the TIMAS award show where they received the award for " Best AC Band ", the song "CLEARVIEW" from their upcoming release receiving a semi-finalist placement award in the International "Song of the Year" contest and most recently securing spots at Canadian Music Week 2013, Indie Week 2013, Canadian Music Week 2014 and Indie Week 2014.

“Mixing equal parts rock and funk, with some pop and punk influences thrown in, Blackdog Ballroom is 100% edge-of-your-seat rock n roll badassery at its absolute finest!”
— Support Unsignd Music

Blackdog Ballroom's performances are high octane celebrations filled with heart and soul delivering an invitation to once again believe in Rock & Roll keeping their ever growing fan base coming back for more!

“They played an energetic show playing some really tight well constructed radio friendly songs. Highly recommend seeing this band live.”
— T-Mak World

The club was jam packed and Blackdog Ballroom was ready. Launching their new album, “This Is Blackdog Ballroom”, the four-piece ensemble blew the roof off the club and had the crowd rocking from the get go. The energy was palpable and kept at peak level until the last chord was struck. Stanfield is quite at home on stage and behind the mic. His love of performing is obvious. He easily interacts with the audience, even inviting the photographers to join the band on stage. The music….somewhere between rock, mod, punk and pop….a combination that keeps you moving and, yes, dancing. For the first set, BB performed the entire album. From “Sounds Like Now”, (headbangingly punkish) through to “Controlling Freedom”, the pulsating beat doesn’t stop. I am listening to the album as I type this and my fingers are flying across the keyboard trying to keep up. Don’t look for any ballads here.
- Pat Blythe, Segarini:Don't Believe a Word I Say

It’s finally here! Blackdog Ballroom have released their debut album, and it’s a hot one. The Mod-fueled band from Richmond Hill, Ontario, have built quite a reputation in the Toronto live music scene. Finally that energy and superb songwriting talent gets channeled into an album
- Spill Magazine

“Their music is undeniably amazing!!! Yes the name of this band is Blackdog Ballroom and they are nothing short of impressive. From the amazing vocals to the strong instrumentals this band will definitely keep you rocking!!”
— March to the Beat
