Soul Crush will be performing at The Royal on Thursday. Composed entirely of Selkirk College music students and led by Laura Landsberg, this R & B ensemble is a must see. From Aretha to John Mayer, a mixture of old and new, Soul Crush will be covering the classics and will be blending in some bluesy modern tunes.
Although the venue is not all ages, the music is. Whether you’ve just hit the nightlife, or have been in it for a while — the show holds something for all audiences. If you’re looking for good music to dance to or just a good time in general, this is the place to be. Between the rich wall of sound given by the four-part harmony vocalists and the fluid groove of the rhythm section, Soul Crush is sure to leave you wanting more.
Opening for the rhythm and blues band will be Selkirks’ Jazz ensemble, 10th Street Collective, led by Paul Landsberg. The ensemble brings a new age approach to jazz. The songs are a compilation of rock, jazz and funk, which brings a modern feel to the band. The 10th Street Collectives will be playing covers by artists such as John Scofield, Marcus Miller, and Mike Stern.
The show starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are available at the door for $5, with all proceeds going back to the school.
