Crash Test Dummies
July 13 @ 8:00 pm
Peterborough Musicfest is proud to present Juno Award-winning alt rock-folk rock quartet Crash Test Dummies on Saturday, July 13, at 8 p.m. – one of 16 performances presented this summer as part of the concert series’ 33rd season.
Formed in Winnipeg in 1988, Crash Test Dummies roared onto the Canadian music landscape with the 1991 release of its debut album The Ghosts That Haunt Me, which was nominated for a 1992 Juno Award on the strength of the hit single Superman’s Song that also saw the band named Best Group of the Year.
International success followed with the 1993 release of the follow-up album God Shuffled His Feet and its top-charting singles Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm, Swimming In Your Ocean and Afternoons & Coffeespoons. Subsequent commercially successful albums A Worm’s Life (1996) and Give Yourself A Hand (1999) cemented Crash Test Dummies’ already strong reputation as a musical force to be reckoned with. In 1995 alone, the band secured three Grammy Award nominations.
In the fall of 2018, band members Brad Roberts, Ellen Reid, Dan Roberts and Mitch Dorge reunited for a tour marking the 25th anniversary of the release of God Shuffled His Feet – a highly-anticipated reunion that came eight years after the band’s last studio album to date, 2010’s Oooh La La!
