Thousand Foot Krutch at Wonder Jam 2011

Trevor McNevan bounds onto the stage at the Kingswod Theatre at Canada’s Wonderland singing the opening lines of “Welcome to the Masquerade”. Problems flare up when McNevan’s microphone cuts out halfway through the song. Trevor continues to sing and toughs out the trouble until the mike comes back on just prior to the end of the song.

TFK has been a staple of both Ontario and world-wide audiences over the past decade and a half. Their first album That’s What People Do, in 1997, became a hit in their hometown of Peterborough, ON. “Rhyme Animal” was added to the rotaion of local radio station The Wolf 101.5 and became on of the most requested songs of the year. The Set It Off CD in 2000, continued to reflect the rap hip/hop metal mix of the band. TFK’s musical style changed in 2003 with the Tooth & Nail label release of Phenomenon. The band seem to reach new fans and old alike with their new true heavy rock sound.

McNevan is a tremendously prolific as both a performer, producer and song writer. In addition to Thousand Foot Krutch, McNevan is also lead singer of the pop/punk band FM Static. He has also provided his talents either lyrically or vocally to:

  • Manafest
  • Worth Dying For
  • Hawk Nelson
  • tobyMac
  • Remedy Drive
  • Wavorly
  • Decyfer Down
  • Demon Hunter
  • KJ-52
  • The Letter Black

Crowd favourite “Rawkfist” from their Phenomenon CD has the crowd jumping with fists in the air. All songs have fans singing at the top of their lungs along with Trevor. Great lyrics and the band members musical skills drive these songs.

Playlist:

  • “Welcome to The Masquerade”
  • “Bring Me To Life”
  • “Move”
  • “Rawkfist”
  • “Scream”
  • “Falls Apart”
  • “Fire it Up”

Too bad that Wonder Jam was not one of TFK’s better performances. This is a very polished band on stage with the experience of thousands of live concerts. What was a technical glitch can often throw off a band’s performance. Make sure to see TFK if you have never had the opportunity, they do not disappoint.
