What’s in a Name? Barenaked Ladies to Perform at ANC 2017

2017-02-27

One of the highlights at this year’s Annual National Conference (ANC) is a performance of the world-renowned rock group, Barenaked Ladies. However, SNA wants to assure you that not only will you find their rock music thoroughly enjoyable and totally appropriate…but no naked ladies will appear on stage.

SNA's Annual National Concert Closing Event Concert

“Gotta see the show, ‘cause then you’ll know,” sings bandmember Ed Robertson on Barenaked Ladies’ chart-topping hit, “One Week,” a song featured on the band’s new live album BNL Rocks Red Rocks. That’s as good a description as any about seeing these rock icons in concert, an experience filled with the kind of energy, precision, finesse and outright celebration that is a tribute to Barenaked Ladies’ remarkable longevity. The band is still together after nearly three decades, producing 14 studio albums which have collectively sold more than 14 million copies, won eight Juno Awards, earned multiple Grammy nominations, a U.S. chart-topping single (“One Week”) and the theme song to one of TV’s most popular shows, “The Big Bang Theory.”

“I don’t think there’s a secret,” Robertson explained to People magazine last year when asked how Barenaked Ladies managed to not just survive since they first got together in 1988, but thrive, continuing to sell out venues wherever they go. “It’s work. You’ve got to respect each other, you got to give each other space, but you also have to support each other… This band learned early on to communicate, right from the beginning we didn’t want to burn out. We wanted to keep making music.”

The group will be playing selections from BNL Rocks Red Rocks, which will place you front and center into one of the most amazing—and, dare we say, FUN—concerts on the current rock circuit. “It’s not easy to be hyperactive, brooding and whimsical all at once,” the New York Times pop critic Jon Pareles once wrote. “But the Barenaked Ladies do just that.”

So there you have it; it’s not the name that counts, but the opportunity to attend one of the most entertaining, energetic and lasting bands today.
