NEW BAND! Mayes has added a full band to this year’s touring schedule. Her and Jay Nowicki have had years of success as an electric duo on stages across the globe, but with a new album comes a new, bigger sound. The talented pride of Ontario, Jimmy Bowskill, will take the reigns on lead guitar for Mayes with the rhythm section of Bernie Thiessen on bass and Jesse Millar on drums!
“I am beyond excited to hit the road again and unleash this new album and even more so with these super talented guys! This is my best record yet, so it's go big or go home at this point!” says Mayes.
Tour dates are posted and updated on the tour page of this website constantly so check back to see when Romi and her new band are coming to your town!
"AFTER THE SHOW", a documentary on Romi Mayes and long time friend and collaborator, Jay Nowicki, played at CINEMATHEQUE in Winnipeg - October 9th, 10th and 11th, 2014! Filmmaker Steven K Johnson spent almost two years completing the full length documentary on Romi and Jay, following their careers with a focus on the making of their 2011 album 'Lucky Tonight'.
'After the Show' is a tribute to all independent musicians, chronicling the utter commitment to an art form where success is measured by creative persistence instead of widespread financial fame.
