Special to the Sydenham Current
After the recent success of the Wallaceburg Arts Council’s Dala girls show at the Jeanne Gordon Theatre, the organization has shifted gears to the next show in its winter series, Turbo Street Funk, on Saturday, February 16, again at the Jeanne Gordon Theatre.
Dala dazzled the Arts Council audience with their amazing vocal harmonies, quick-witted humour and a laid-back mellow show that just carried you off.
Turbo Street Funk defy convention; whether they’re playing a festival, pub, concert hall, or even on a busy street corner, the infectious sounds of Turbo Street Funk always sound at home. With a performance style rooted in the New Orleans horn band tradition, Turbo Street Funk combine Top 40 hits with top notch originals in an incendiary show that gets people moving.
Formed in 2011, Turbo Street Funk started as a professional busking band, performing on the streets of Toronto four days a week each spring and summer while members of the band attended university. The band received high praise from local journalists for their fresh sound and popularity with Toronto audiences.
After Turbo Street Funk, the Arts Council will again shift gears as it welcomes one of the finest touring bands in the world today, Ben Caplan and the Casual Smokers. That show is slated for Saturday, April 13 at the Jeanne Gordon Theatre.
Both shows are at 8 p.m. and tickets can be obtained on-line at www.eventbrite.ca or at www.wallaceburgartscouncil.com or at the Wallaceburg Museum (519-627-8962). For more information call 519-627-5978.
