Local band, Autumn Kings, selected for Canadian tour as part of LiveDifferent from 118 bands
Local Windsor band Autumn Kings have been part of the local music scene collectively for more than a year and individually for several. They have just selected to tour Western Canada as part of LiveDifferent, an organization whose presentations have emerged as one of the most popular assemblies in Canadian schools, reaching several thousands of students each year with a message of hope, purpose, and perspective. The presentations inspire students to take immediate action to make a difference in their individual lives.
Autumn Kings exploded into the scene just over a year ago and in that short time, the young men achieved a sizeable following in Southwestern Ontario and Michigan. After applying at the beginning of the year to be a part of LiveDifferent for the 2016 fall semester, the band discovered in early June that they were being considered along with five other bands from the initial 118 that had applied. The news arrived on July 1 that they were the band that would tour over 100 high schools in cities including Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Toronto and many more.
“We are honoured, humbled and beyond excited to be doing what we love and helping to motivate others at the same time”, says Jake Diab, lead guitarist/backup vocalist.
Autumn Kings is comprised of four men – Jake Diab, 19, Joseph Coccimiglio, 22, Tibor Bognar, 18, and Jeremie Brousseau, 17.
The band will be embarking on the tour August 21 and will tour for four months until December 15th.
