Hornography plays Spiritbar this Saturday

A musical groove-a-thon is bound for Spiritbar this Saturday as Nelson’s Hornography plays a rare club show.

A musical groove-a-thon is bound for Spiritbar this Saturday as Nelson’s Hornography plays a rare club show.

The band is comprised of a five-piece horn section, featuring Krispen Elder, Rick Lingard, Clinton Swanson, Tim Bullen and Matt Weber, supported by two drummers — Al Black and Tony Ferraro — electric bass player Mark Spielman and guitar player Rich Rabnett.

Together they perform original music composed by Swanson.

For Saturday’s gig, they’ll also be joined on stage by the Hornography Dancers: Slava Doval, Julie Turgeon and Kristina Black.

“It’s going to be a bit of a squeeze to fit everyone on stage at Spritbar,” laughed Swanson. “But it will be well worth it.”

The band, which mostly gets together for festival tours, hasn’t played in Nelson since December 2012.

“It’s a big band to pull together for a one-night,” Swanson said. “We’re finally doing this show because so many people in the community have been asking us when we’re going to play here again, and we just really wanted to do something for our local supporters.”

The opener for the May 3 event is Kootenay Music Award-winning DJ Rafferty Funksmith. Doors open at 10 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance at the Hume Hotel or at ticketweb.ca and $15 at the door.
