1) The Weekend
From humble beginnings in the summer of 1995 when two young girls from London, Canada, Andrea Wasse (vox/guitar) and Lorien Jones (vox/bass) found kindred spirit Lincoln Cushman (keyboards) wandering the streets, The Weekend’s reason for existence has been to rock the tired masses. The Weekend's self-titled debut full-length record, produced by Andy Magoffin at the House of Miracles, contained ten sensational gems that did just that. The Weekend’s fresh-faced approach, infectious vocal harmonies, sweet keyboards, crunchy guitar and heartstring tugging lyrics have become a beacon of rock hope in this era of bland music saturation.
“The Weekend” spent 16 weeks in the Top Ten radio charts for Campus Radio nationwide which led them to opening for such notable acts as Green Day, Matthew Good Band, Big Sugar, 54:40 and Default. Their music has been featured on television in episodes of “Family Law,” Mary-Kate & Ashley Olson's “So Little Time”, and the CBC series “Our Hero.” The Weekend’s pop rock candy floss flavored sound has made them one of the most popular independent bands in the country, being featured on CBC Radio's “Just Concerts” along with radio and websites around the world. In 2001, MGM Distribution released their debut album domestically in Australia, and there are plans to tour “down under” this fall.
2) The Weekend is also the name of the now defunct duo consisting of Abel Tesfaye (now The Weeknd) and Jeremy Rose.
