Dave Quanbury returns with new band and pop sound

E-mail Print PDF

It’s great to see Winnipeg  musician Dave Quanbury back in Lethbridge albeit with an all new, more pop and keyboard based sound rather than his usual folk flavoured, guitar based sound. I missed him the last time he was at the Slice last May, so was glad to see hm again.

 For once, I was thankful for a late starting show, as I was coming to the Slice from the Pink Floyd Tribute at Average Joes, Saturday, April 21 at around 11:30 p.m. I missed the opening act, but was just in time for Quanbury and his band, Jamie Wright on keyboards and singing harmony and Alasdair Dunlop from Sweet Alibi playing bass and also singing harmonies.

 They had a lot of keyboards and machines hooked up, but  they had a pleasant, really laid back, melodic, psychedelic indie pop sound happening.

They even a had a touch of East Indian Bollywood music on one song. Quanbury did triple duty on guitar, vocals and on keyboards . The set mostly  focussed in the new CD “Still Life With Canadian” including  “Bollywood Ringtone” and “Maharaja.”

 All three of them had appealing, melodic tenor voices.

They ended their first set with the catchy new single “Ghost Daughters.”
