Selkirk talent to perform at Nelson’s Spiritbar

Two Selkirk College bands - Soul Crush and the Tenth Street Collective - are performing at Nelson's Spiritbar on Thursday, April 19.

Soul Crush will be performing at SpiritBar on Thursday, April 19. Composed entirely of Selkirk College music students, led by Laura Landsberg, this explosive R&B ensemble is a must-see.

From Aretha Franklin to John Mayer, a balanced mixture of old and new, Soul Crush will be covering the classics with young and exciting energy.

Although the venue is not all ages, the music is. Whether you’ve just hit the nightlife, or are well-aquainted with it – the show holds trills for all audiences.

Whether you’re itching to bust moves on the dancefloor or just wanting to sit back and soak in some amazing live music, this is the place to be.

Between the wonderfully-woven blanket of sound given by the four-part harmonies and the naturally fluid groove of the rhythm section, Soul Crush is sure to leave you wanting more.

The opening act of the night will be the Selkirk jazz ensemble, Tenth Street. Collective, led by Paul Landsberg.

This talented group takes the audience on a groove-based, energetic adventure while maintaining the cool sophistication of the advanced musical art we call jazz. The tunes posses equal servings of rock, jazz and funk; resulting in a truely spectacular and highly dance-able concoction of modern jazz.

Tenth Street Collective will be playing covers by artists such as John Scofield, Marcus Miller, and Mike Stern.

Come out and support your local musicians and graduating Selkirk students of 2012!

Help the vibes survive til closing time with closing DJs Rolf and Leif.

Doors open at 9 p.m., party starts half anhour later.

Tickets are $5 at the door or free for Selkirk students. (Don’t forget your student ID).
