THE BOX IN CONCERT
FRIDAY, MARCH 6, 2020 8:00 PM
Presented by: Music Express in Association with Word Travels Fast
The Box is a classic eighties Montreal Pop/Rock Band which enjoyed major chart success with hits like ‘Closer Together’, ‘Ordinary People’, ‘Carry On’, & ‘My Dreams of You’. They also perform a live show-stopping cover of Men Without Hats ‘Safety Dance’.
Founded by Jean-Marc Pisapia in 1981, and signed by Toronto-based Alert Records in 1984, on a recommendation from ‘Men Without Hats’, The Box’s debut record sparked two hit singles with “Must I Always Remember” and “Walk Away” generating strong airplay.
Their 1985 follow up `All The Time, All The Time, All The Time”, which marked the band debut of background vocalist Sass Jordan, produced the hits “My Dreams of You” and “Say To Me” which garnered them a Juno nomination and a Felix Award for group of the year.
The band’s third album, `Closer Together’, recorded in 1987, was the most commercially successful. Released just as Much Music was becoming a Canadian force to promote new music, the band’s videos for “Closer Together” and “Ordinary People” received almost constant exposure.
The Box last appeared as part of the ‘Canadian Eighties’ series at the Regent Theatre back in 2018 to rave reviews. We have had many requests from our patrons to bring them back, and we have listened! Please don’t miss out on the exciting live show of this incredible Canadian band.
