Gaetz Ave Gain Ground with Eastern Tour

Published: 2005-03-17
Although they're fairly new to the scene, pop/r&b duo Gaetz Ave are already making leaps and bounds in their career. Their self-titled debut was just released on February 15th and it has already made a dent in the national charts, and now Danielle Heykants and Ben Mullen will head out on tour across Canada.

Gaetz Ave has already covered the ground near their home in Red Deer, Alberta, so now the two-piece will head out eastwards for their first Eastern Canadian tour. They'll be tagging along with fellow Canadian band Downhere for the 8 date jaunt which will hit both Ontario and Quebec. Before they make the journey east, however, Gaetz Ave still has a few more dates to play in the Prairies.

Not only will Gaetz Ave be touring with Downhere, but member Jason Germaine also edited the duo's 12-track eponymous debut. Although Gaetz Ave's debut was just released last month, both Heykants and Mullen have been making music as solo artists long before joining forces. To download three songs from "Gaetz Ave" for absolutely free ("Here I Go", "Sunshine", "Real Love"), go to the band's official web site at

The track-listing of Gaetz Ave's self-titled debut is:

"Here I Go"
"Real Love"
"Rescue Me"
"Say It Loud"
"Love Me Still"
"Rise From The Shadows"
"I Will Be OK"
"Trust You"
"Show Me"
"Nothing Else I Need"

Gaetz Ave's upcoming performances with Downhere:

March 19-22 Brooks, AB - Catholic Schools (solo)
March 23 Calgary, AB - Harvest Hills Alliance Church (solo)
March 24 Windsor, ON - Riverside Baptist
March 27 Barrie, ON - Calvary Community Church

Yet i have to say one thing. dispite the fact they broke up i still hear their stuff on the radio almost everyday. i think the facts are..when it's music made unto God you cannot prevent the music from making an impact. I myself aren't a huge fan of the couple..but i do know this..i've known them for many years and though pop isn't my thing...they are awesome people who love God..and even though they're "band" didn't last very long..their voices still sing amazingly.

okay, so I attended the Word of Life Church this past weekend with my cousin and I was fortunate enough to catch Danielle Heykants rip it up in worship! AMAZING! It was by far the best worship service I've attended in like, ever! I live in Calgary and contemplate travelling to Red Deer because the worhsip and sermon's are AMAZING!! Whatever Danielle is doing music wise, be it with or without Gaetz Ave I know one thing, Our Lord and Savior has blessed her with an amazing voice and I pray that she continues her work with the Lord! yeah...AMAZING!!
