Musician Funny of the Week

 

 

 

Surrey's CAPTAIN MANIAC with his weekly radio show, this week a musical hodge podge.

In Episode 144, we return to those years when my so-called musical tastes were materializing and formulating, in what is now known as Classic Rock (but back in the Silly 70s was referred to as plain old Music). We proudly present mass quantities of great old tracks from those golden years — and Stairway to Heaven and Free Bird are STILL nowhere to be found. In tonight’s installment, we not only have a Southern Rock segment and lots of Canadian Content , but additional 70s vinyl rock n roll rarities for you to enjoy. Raise a little hell!

KIERAH RAYMOND

Saturday March 4 | Doors 7pm | Music 8pm

Second who added Sunday March 05 7 p.m.

Powerhouse Celtic Fiddle player - Kierah Raymond - kicks off White Rock’s Irish month with music from her spectacular new CD - “Strong Bow”. It was produced by Adrian Dolan and recorded here at the Blue Frog Studios.

Studying and performing Celtic fiddle music alongside 13 years of classical violin; Kierah is a ridiculously talented fiddle player. At 17, she won a 2013 Canadian Folk Music Award for her 3rd album - “Stonemason’s Daughter” and has written B.C.’s first book of all original fiddle tunes carried by Long and McQuade across Canada.

Kierah has such a strong love for traditional and contemporary fiddle music, that she has developed a special educational performance called “Celtic Traditions Across Canada" which she has taken to over 150 schools in B.C. and Alberta.

Performing with Kierah will be two outstanding B.C. musicians: Adrian Dolan of “The Bills” and of “The Ruth Moody Band” on piano, mandola, mandolin, accordion and viola along with innovative guitarist, Adam Dobres, of the “The Ruth Moody Band”, “The Wailing Jennys”, “Toni Childs”, and “The Dustin Bentall and The Truth” bands.

 

COUNTERMEASURE

Sunday, March 12, 2017 | Doors 6:00pm | Music 7:00pm


 

Toronto-based COUNTERMEASURE is the new sound in vocal music. This genre-defying A Cappella group is led by award-winning composer/arranger Aaron Jensen and features 14 of Canada’s top young vocal talent. They are immediately recognizable by their upbeat blend, sophisticated harmonies, and infectious energy. Performances of “Takin’ It Home”, “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”, “London Bells”, “Lovers in A Dangerous Time”, “Made to Measure”, “I Saw Her Standing There”, “Jump Back”, “Life is Fine”, “Best of My Love” and “Opera Somnia” demonstrate the group’s broad range of lively pop, jazz, contemporary, and original songs, sung in unique arrangements that are sometimes complex, but generally playful.

With their fresh, innovative approach COUNTERMEASURE challenges expectations while breathing new life into the standard repertoire. Their inventive, contemporary sound has earned the group both critical and public acclaim. The ensemble was awarded one of two spots in the Best Jazz Album category from the Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards for their debut CD, “14 Characters”. The album was also nominated for an Independent Music Award. The music video for “Opera Somnia” has been nominated in three categories in the A Cappella Video Awards (2017): Outstanding Video Editing, Best Electronic/Experimental Video, and Best Video by a CAL Group. Additionally, Countermeasure has featured in high-profile jazz festivals, concert series, and galas, as well as on national radio and television. They are a founding artist of SING! The Toronto Vocal Arts Festival, Canada’s premier a cappella festival and have shared the stage with a plethora of vocal and musical giants. They recently returned from their second U.S. tour, and in January, 2015 embarked on their first UK tour, finishing in London as the only Canadian group chosen to perform at the prestigious London A Cappella Festival.

 

THE PAT CHESSELL BAND

Saturday | March 18th, 2017 | Doors: 7:00 pm | Show 8:00 pm

 

"A force to be reckoned with" is how, Canada's top Celtic publication, The Celtic Connection describes Pat Chessell, "...Check out his live show now so you could say you knew him when..."

Pat Chessell has made a name for himself as one of the most exciting live acts on the Vancouver music scene. His passionate, smoky vocals are complemented by Celtic fuelled sounds that stretch into influences of roots, folk, and alt-country. The Vancouver based folksinger began his career at a young age, performing as a guest with Danny Burns of the legendary Irish group, The Wolfhound.

Chessell gained popularity in the Fraser Valley and Vancouver area as he and his backup band served as the house band at the popular Dublin Crossing Irish Pub for several years. Since then, he has transitioned from being a regular act in essentially every Irish bar in the Vancouver area to being a featured act at the Irish Pavilion during the 2010 Olympics; he has since performed in such festivals as West Vancouver's Harmony Arts, Celtic Fest Vancouver, Canadian Rockies Kitchen Party, Cloverdale Rodeo and Surrey Fusion Festival, to name just a few. He has been the opening act for the likes of Jim Byrnes, Derek Warfield and the Young Wolfe Tones, and The Town Pants, among others.

The Guinness will be flowing for the perfect Irish Celebration, as the Pat Chessell Band fires up Blue Frog Studios for a foot-stomping, hand-clapping IRISH SHOW.
