Based in Oshawa Ontario, From The Hip is one of Canada's hottest Tragically Hip Tribute Bands. The precision drumming of Rob Therrien and solid bass playing of Andrew Kennedy provide a concrete foundation for the band. Enter Gino LeBlanc and Dave Aston on guitar... serving up classic Hip riffs 'til the cows come home. Finally we have Shawn Duval... just close your eyes and you'd swear Gordie was in the house !
