Yeah, I agree with you True Warrior.

Awahali-smooth sound
Kau-Ta-Noh Jrs.-just plain jammin'
Battle River-Oh my God!
Mandaree-very respected group, best oldschool sounding group

Just had to give my penny's worth.

The best original these days seem to be coming from the Chippewas/Ojibways and Crees these days: Battle River, Snake Island, High Noon, Red Bull, White Tail and Rockboy/Haystack.

White Eagle- everyone sings Arlie's songs
Mandaree- everyone sings the Baker's songs
Battle River- Kingbirds at their best
High Noon- jamming tunes but they need to get rid of that Darryl guy!
Red Bull- when they have a full crew
Mystic River- they need to be more repectful. I seen a few of these guys manhandling spectators and other singers at Schemitzun last year.
WhiteTail- when they first hit the scene, they were powerful but they must have lost some of their singers.
Haystack- always good old tunes
Snake Island- up and coming

Manhandling, huh? What's this about? They're a good group, nonetheless!

Yes they are a good group, that is why I have them on my list but I was only stating that I witnessed a couple of them disrespecting people at Schemitzun. Inappropriate behaviour for singers as this reflects on their group.

hmmm....think you might be misrepresentin' Big Bear and High Noon.....although they have some Cree singers I'd be hesitant to call them a Cree drum...especially with the songs they sing.....

No one is "Fronting" on your boys man, this is not the forum to discuss a group's negative behaviours. If you must know the truth, pm me and I will enlighten you or ask The Rock as he and I have already discussed this issue in private. later!
