A couple of the lakecity’s youngest bands will be performing in a special concert at the Central Cariboo Arts Centre next Wednesday.

With eclectic names Red Monkey Black King and Gluten Free Time Machine these creative young musicians and singers bring a bright new twist to the lakecity music scene.

Red Monkey Black King delivers a brand new blues rock experience with Ilan Peimer on vocals and rhythm guitar, James Still on lead guitar, Kayne Robinson on Bass and Eli Peterson on drums.

The band has been together for six months and draws inspiration from their favourite musical artists, as well as their own lives.

Expect to hear a handful of their new originals, along with a few covers of old favourites.

Gluten Free Time Machine features Benjamin Lamb-Yorski on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Eli Peterson on drums, and Nathan Maas on lead guitar who are working on completing their first album this summer that will feature a number of their own originals.

The group plays a variety of musical styles seeking inspiration from everything around them including their own favourite musicians.

“You’ll see, throughout our music, a diversity of genre and technique that is difficult to find anywhere else,” explains Lamb-Yorski.

Their concert takes place at the Central Cariboo Arts Centre Wednesday, July 27 from 7 to about 9 p.m.

Tickets are $10 in advance at Red Shreds Bike and Board Shed and The Guitar Seller or from band members, or for $15 at the door.
