They play Attainable Records, Feb. 18.
They are touring in support of their latest CD “Airwaves.”

 They formed in Swift Current and attended music school together.
Bassist/ saxophonist/ clarinetist and keyboardist  Dana Rempel even lived in Lethbridge for a year, so he is excited to return for a visit.

“I was there last summer for  a wedding. We’ve all been to Lethbridge, but we’ve never played there as a band, he said.

“We all grew up playing in band — concert band and jazz band. We’ve all studied horns and woodwind instruments. We have a lot of classical, jazz and pop influences. That is how we built the sound,” Rempel said.

“ And I’ve got three years as a music instructor,” he said,” adding the band members have an array of musical influences.
“We like everything. There’s pop and R and B and funk. So we have all of those musical colours,” he said.

He said the live show will be pretty energetic.
“We’ll be playing some older songs from our first EP and the new EP. We’re looking forward to opening up and  going big. There will be lots of dancing and we love interacting with the audience.


 They released Airwaves in August 2015.
“It shows more of our influences,” he said, adding the band’s music changes and evolves  the more they play the songs live.

“A lot of them weren’t quite developed when we went into the studio to record them. We had to really fill them out live,” he continued.
It is an early show with the music beginning at 7 p.m.

There is a $10 cover. Webb plus Max and the Minimums are also on the bill
