The Cayley show the scene continues to grow

E-mail Print PDF

It is very cool to see Lethbridge’s music scene to grow and thrive.  Because a scene can‘t surprise with new blood, new talent and new energy reinvigorating people’s passions for music.
 Since I started covering the scene  more than  decade ago,  a lot of the regulars who used to go to show have grown up, got married, had kids and have been staying home more.

That could result in a dearth of attendanThe Cayley at the OwlAcoustic Lounge, Nov. 22. Photo by Richard Ameryce at local shows and a void in the scene, but it is great to see that it is not so. It seems like every day new kids are coming up , forming bands and making music together. It seems like every week there is somebody new on the scene. More importantly, people are coming out to see them. I saw a few familiar faces who came out of hibernation for the show, but barely recognized most of their audience.

 I’ve been hearing a lot about local rock band  the Cayley, but never got the chance to see them until Nov. 22.
 So  I was pleasantly surprised to see the Owl packed to the rafters for the Cayley. I arrived just in time to see the lead guitarist jump on a front row table to play a hot guitar solo, which his bandmates cut loose behind him. 

They had a fun, kind of glam rock feel. A cursory listen reminded me of the Darkness, but with a lot of blues and soul added to the mix. They had some ’60s and ’70s groove and a real exciting , youthful vigour which was welcome.

 And they had a lot of enthusiastic  young fans  in the front row, who called out for an encore. I look forward to hearing  more from them.
