Jim Creeggan’s birthday!

I just wanted to make a special post dedicated to the birth of the Barenaked Ladies own Jim Creeggan! He turns 42 today after spending a week on the Ships and Dip Cruise which just came to an end yesterday afternoon. Many of his fans have wished him a very happy birthday online.

Happy Birthday Jim! We love you and everything you’ve been to the band.


Going over the basics…

The year? 1988. The place? Scarborough, Ontario and Toronto.

Four men got together to create the Canadian alternative rock band, The Barenaked Ladies. The band was begun by Steven Page (vocals, guitar) and Ed Robertson (vocals, guitar), Jim Creeggan (bass, cello), Andy Creeggan (origional keyboardist) and Tyler Stewart in 1990 (drums). Andy Creeggan left the band in 1995 and was replaced by Kevin Hearn (keyboardist, accordian). Later, Steven Page  in 2009 resigned from the band to persue a solo career.

The Ladies are known for their light-hearted, comedic preformance style with humorous banter and improvised raps/songs. They are best known for their hit singles One Week, The Old Apartment, Pinch Me, If I had $1,000,000, and Brian Wilson.
