Hoogie, On The Road with Shine Down (2009)

June 16, 2009

   Chatham Kent native Jeramy Donais (Hoogie) has been touring the world with different bands as part of their road crew. In 2009, he is the guitar tech for one of the worlds biggest rock bands, Shine down. Constantly on tour, he has also been called to different parts of the world to help out in his downtime. Most recent gigs include this summer with Filter. Jeremy is from Tilbury and is involved with Wett Boxx entertainment.
  Wett Boxx Entertainment, or its representatives have worked with such acts as Breaking Benjamin, Staind, Shinedown, Econoline Crush, Sum 41, Treble Charger, Simple Plan, Sam Roberts, Theory of a Deadman, Swollen Members, Not By Choice, F.N.A., Estella Fritz, JF Coley, Billy Talent, Tupelo Honey and many more great acts.

Nov update: When we last checked in with Hoogie on Nov 17th 2009, He had just arrived home for a few days off a nine week tour. He just finished working the road with ‘Lamb of God’ on their tour opening for Metallica! I am sure he has some stories to tell.  The last show was Madison Square Garden, NYC. He will be gone in a few days though, to begin a new adventure across this great planet. Tilbury for Life!!

Hoogie On The Road

May 3, 2009

Home: Tilbury Ontario

Here is Chatham Kent native Jeramy Donais (HooGie). He has been touring the world with different bands as part of their road crew.
   This was posted July 2007, when he was guitar tech for Breaking Benjamin. I first met him when he was working for ‘Not By Choice’ (If I remember correctly) & my ol band Janet Theory were on the bill.
    He has worked with Treble Charger, Theory of a Dead Man, Sam Roberts, and is spending allot of 2008-2009 working guitar tech for ShineDown. Got to love it.
