The Cunninghams have made some stunning achievements. In April of 2008, they were the winners of the cross-Canada Mazda Muzik Tour Contest, which gave them the opportunity to open for legendary Canadian rocker Sam Roberts to a packed Opera House in Toronto. The band has several times taken the coveted Edge 102's street-front studios stage as part of its Steamwhistle indie music nights and are a regular at some of Toronto√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s most legendary venues such as the Horseshoe Tavern and El Mocambo.
In November of 2008, the band released its debut album entitled That Oughtta Hold √¢‚Ç¨ÀúEm to mass critical acclaim; an album that the band felt, at the time, would be an almost insurmountable feat to surpass. However, the First Family of Rock & Roll, with their aptly-named sophomore effort entitled High Class Rock and Roll, has delivered. Recorded at Toronto√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s legendary Phase One Studios, this unique m√É¬©lange of thunderous rockers and soulful ballads is sure to have fans salivating at the chance to hear what everyone has been anticipating over the past year. It is worth getting your hands on.
The band has embarked on several small tours of Southern Ontario and continues to astonish audiences from venues all over Ontario and Quebec.
Over the past 18 months, the band has written and recorded several new tracks, including 20th Century Communist Blues. The band's line-up has also changed; however, the rock and roll remains the stronger than ever.
Currently, the band consists of Nigel Cunningham (Guitar/Vocals), Pierce Cunningham (Guitar/Vocals), and Colonel Cunningham (Drums/Vocals).
The Cunninghams are currently preparing to enter the studio to record yet ANOTHER record. Stay tuned!
