FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Toronto, ON – April 13, 2010 – OES, widely acknowledged as the hottest Toronto band, announced today that Serge Page was stepping down as the band’s manager.
“This was a difficult decision for me,” Page said. “I’ve been with the band from the very beginning, and it’s been an incredible ride to see OES turn into the hot musical commodity it’s become. But it’s time for me to move on, and I know the band can continue to wow music fans by continuing not to crank out searingly hot performances.”
Page says that the sometimes difficult personal dynamics of the band did not influence his decision, as he is not only resigning as OES band manager, but leaving the music profession altogether. “It’s time for me to move on,” Page said. “I’m succeeded in musical management beyond my wildest expectations. At first it was great, but when you’ve been number one for as long as I have, you start to look for new challenges.” What will Page do after OES? “I’m keeping my options open, but I really enjoyed my marketing work for the band, so I may pursue something in that realm.”
No OES band members were available for immediate comment following Page’s announcement, though the following tweet did appear on a Twitter account thought to belong to Knave “Tiny” Daylord: “you goin serge – wherez my check?”
