Paper Lions PEI Music Group Celebrates 15 Years
Had 4 shows in 2004
By John Gavin, Monday, July 22, 2019


Paper Lions from PEI are celebrating their 15 years in the music business.

What an incredible accomplishment for a group

that there's never been like a huge competition within the group!

The group is made up as, Colin Buchanan, John MacPhee, Rob MacPhee and David Cyrus MacDonald.

They have come a long way since their first gig 15 years ago at Canada Day 2004 when they were known as

The Chucky Danger Band. Later they changed the band name to Paper Lions.

They have won multiple awards, toured the world and played at the Olympics.

Their songs were played on local radio stations and there was no shortage of gigs.

They won an East Coast Music in 2006 and have been nominated for several

others including four in 2019 for their album AT LONG CREEK II.

The band is marking its anniversary with a new single and a new album and a big hometown concert

in the works. The band is playing a show at the Confederation Center in Charlottetown on October 19.

One of the songs, Rhythm and Gold, features the late Josh Underhay on the horn.

Josh, who was a candidate for the Green Party on PEI,

and his six-year old son Oliver died when their canoe capsized

on the Hillsborough River, PEI in April 2019.

Josh was a really good friend of band member,

David MacDonald, as they went through UPEI music program together,

so David feels very fortunate to have that little piece of him

on the song.

Congratulations to Paper Lions from Atlantic Seabreeze,

who was promoting the band from their very beginning.
