Estevan will go from being Saskatchewan's "Energy City" to the province's "Musical City" this week with Long Live The Glory set to perform Friday & Saturday.

Jesse Gibson has been making his presence known as one of Estevan's upcoming musical talents. In 2019 he was named the Estevan Sings Junior Winner. He has also performed at numerous Estevan United Way Telethons with last year's being the first with his group Long Live The Glory.

Comprising of musicians from across the province, the group met at the School of Rock in Regina.

"We first joined the program when the place opened" Gibson explains, "A while later we all joined the house band which got us bigger gigs. We've opened Shake the Lake for a few years now,  we've played Rockin' the Fields of Minnedosa, and then we played at the Grey Cup this year as well."

One of the first bands to graduate from the School of Rock program in Regina, Gibson and his bandmates live all across Saskatchewan. 

"We have one guy in Imperial, one guy in Holdfast, and two guys from Regina," says Gibson.

Being in a band with members separated by hundreds of kilometres can be a struggle, but the group makes it work with rehearsal and writing songs together.

"We try to get together once or twice a month. There are three of us that see each other every week, but when we finally all meet, we do rehearsal and sometimes we just start jamming and then what works, works and if it sticks then everything is good."

Long Live The Glory will be performing at the Bruins home game on Friday versus the Nipiwan Hawks during both intermissions and also on Saturday for the Estevan Humane Society's Whiskers & Wine Gala.
