Three young bands perform for cancer society

Three hip young lakecity bands are coming together for a concert this Saturday to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Three hip young lakecity bands are coming together for a concert this Saturday to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Dynamic Downfall drummer Bob Favell says the bands have all been touched in some way by cancer.

“My grandma and great grandma died from breast cancer and it’s all something we believe strongly in helping so when I asked the band if they were up for giving the money to cancer they were all for it,” Favell says.

Dynamic Downfall is a hard rocking group of youth who have been playing together for about three years now and were recently invited to a demo recording session at the UBC Okanagan campus in Kelowna,   Favell says.

In addition to Favell on drums the band includes singer Nathan Mortimer, Colton Douglas on guitar and Nick Carrier on bass.

The bands Calling April and Larry Don’t Pull That Leaver will be opening for Dynamic Downfall.

Larry Don’t Pull That Leaver is a softer rock group which includes Kalie Cook on drums, Colton Baker on vocals and guitar, Nick Carrier on vocals and guitar and Colton Douglas on bass.

Calling April is a more punk rock style band with some members from Dynamic Downfall. Lee Williams is on vocals and guitar, Jose Salazar on bass and Chad Webster on drums.

The concert takes place in the Gibraltar Room March 24. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the concert begins at 7 p.m.


Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door. Tickets will be available at the Guitar Seller and Sight and Sound, or LDs Cafe or by calling Favell at 250-296-3515.
