A Rocking Good Time At Players Bench

The guys in Five Wheel Drive opened up 2015 with a bang. On Saturday night, January 17, the band played to a full house at Player’s Bench Oshawa. Adding in a number of new tunes, the guys had a great night, and we are pretty sure that the guests did too. Thanks to all in attendance. Next up, The Ridges Pub in Pickering on February 20.


Rocking A Christmas Wish December 20


The band will be “Rocking A Christmas Wish” on Saturday December 20, when they visit the Brooklin Pub.  This is the newest establishment in Brooklin and sports a very modern and new look.

Five Wheel Drive will be hosting a fundraiser in support of the Children’s Wish Foundation and Hearth Place.  These two local charities offer unmatched services to many families in the Durham Region area and the band wanted to give back to such worthy causes.

Tickets for the event cna be purchased online at Event Brite’s Online Site or a very limited supply can be purchased at the door.  The night will include a silent auction, live music and much more.

The band hopes that you will take the time at this special time of year to support others that need it most.  100% of the sales of tickets and all other activities will go directly to these two charities.

Tonight, Friday April 11, the guys will invade Frosty John’s Pub in Bowmanville for the very first time.  The band is slated to go on at around 9:30 pm.   The renovations have not been completed yet, so the band will be up close and interactive to say the least.

Tomorrow night the guys return to the Player’s Bench on Oshawa.  Last time at PB, there was a great turnout it was an excellent night of music and dancing.  Saturday is shaping up to be the same.
