The Safety Meetings concert series at the Central Cariboo Arts Centre is a big hit.
“So far we’ve had excellent luck, selling out every night, including the second night that was added to Pharis and Jason Romero’s performance this past Saturday,” says event organizer Brandon Hoffman.
“The second night in particular of P and J’s show was incredible. Lauren and the Yahoos opened the night with a fresh indie folk sound. I can’t believe that they’re still in high school; their harmonies sound fantastic. You could hear a pin drop throughout Pharis and Jason’s performance.”
Coming up in a special show Wednesday, April 15 he says they have been lucky to score Shred Kelly.
“These guys are great; super high energy, and a really unique sound blending folk rock with synthesizers,” Hoffman says. “This one is going to be a foot stomper.”
Opening the night will be Jordan Holmes spinning some tunes. Tickets are available at Red Shreds, and it’s suggested $20 for this one. In the same week, Hoffman says Colin Easthope and Tanya Gallagher will be in concert on Saturday, April 18.
“I should emphasize that we’re really grateful for the folks who choose to pay more than the suggested price,” Hoffman says.
“Especially when bands are driving to town for the performance — it’s nice to be able to put some fuel in their tank.”
