Sheepdogs ‘Feeling Good’ at Grey Cup
REGINA – Saskatchewan’s The Sheepdogs kicked off the 101st Grey Cup with “Feeling Good,” mirroring the mood of the hometown fans who turned the Mosaic Stadium stands into a sea of green Sunday.
The Saskatoon band played two songs on a small stage near the north endzone, with a small crowd in front. The band wrapped up their short set with “I Don’t Know” before making way for the player introductions.
Hedley is the main attraction at halftime for the game between the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
The band, from Abbotsford, B.C., was clearly into the gig. They tweeted a picture of themselves wearing CFL jerseys just ahead of kickoff.

Serena Ryder, a native of Millbrook, Ont., who now makes her home in Toronto, played the national anthem complete with a Flying V guitar.
Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen, Marianas Trench, and Gordon Lightfoot performed at last year’s Grey Cup halftime show in Toronto, where the hometown Argonauts defeated the Calgary Stampeders.
