 Frontman/ guitarist Jay Nowicki has been busy with family and worklife, but is excited to  return to Lethbridge.

“I love Lethbridge,” said Nowicki, adding the Perpetrators only play a couple times a month on weekend in places that are easy to drive to like Dauphin.
“I have a job as a tour boat operator on the river. So that keeps me pretty busy. It’s a lot of fun. It’s like a half hour show except without the music,” said Nowicki, celebrating his son’s second birthday party.

“Walter’s two and he’s already jamming with me. He love the guitars lying around the house and I’ll play and he can keep the time with me,” he said.
He noted it has  been a while since the Perpetrators released their last CD “Stick ’Em Up” in 2013.

“I have enough songs for a new CD, but I don’t think I’ll bring any of them out. Recording hasn’t really been a priority. Being a father and working has been. Maybe when the boat season is over in a couple of weeks, I can concentrate on recording,” he observed, adding he loves playing Lethbridge.

“I’ve been playing Lethbridge since  we released the first album,” he said.

“I’ll be driving out with (bassist) Johnny Scoles. And (Drummer) Emmett Van Etten will be driving down from Edmonton to meet us,” he said, adding they won’t have time to rehearse before their shows in Calgary and Lethbridge.

 “It‘s going to be maybe three chords and the truth and a lot of blues,” he said.
“But we‘re always coming in hot,“ he said

 The Perpetrators play the Slice at 8:30 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 13, 2018. Admission is $15.
