Fairly early in the evening, each member of the band, including their hard-working manager Andy Winkler, was presented with a personalized large framed plaque commemorating the milestone. Video cameras from entertainment TV shows were present. Champagne flowed. And Alex Norman (vocals, guitar) made a short speech. They were also presented with mounted certificates in recognition of their video Nothing Special reaching #1 on the MuchMusic Countdown Chart.
From my perspective, it's been a blast getting to be a part of it all, even if only for the past two years of their career, watching and photographing the band as they went through different stages to get to this point. It wasn't a surprise that I knew many of the people at the party one way or another. A seriously good time was had by everyone, including me, although I expect there were a few people who didn't make it into work the next day (*aaheemm*).
