Local musicians help out Lethbridge Girls Rock Camp

E-mail Print PDF

I had to cut Jazz in the Park short as I had volunteered to play in a band for the Lethbridge Girls Rock Camp Band Swap at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, June 8, which was in the afternoon this time, following the LGRC family jam.
The event mirrored what the Lethbridge Girls Rock Campers do in that they get together, usually learn an instrument, form a band and rehearse a set to be played at the end of the week, which is what we did.
 Organizer SIl Campus and her band played a quick set of alternative rock, with Campus playing bass as usual.

 My band included Chris Hibbard on vocals and the rest of Sil Camus]s usual band MomBod aka drummer Amberlea Parker and guitarist Mandy Fox. I played Cigar box guitar to open and was joined  by my bandmates for a quick set of punk and ska music by the Interrupters, Social Distortion and Bikini Kill. We also tackled the Rolling Stones “Paint It Black.”

 The “professionals” were next with  Gabe Thaine playing guitar and keyboards and Megan Brown playing fiddle and  singing.

They played a set of mostly original blues and roots music, featuring and original from brown and another from Thaine.
