Event Notes

× Trail and District Arts Council presents Kootenay Savings Music in the Park

Heavyweights Brass Band

with opening act Sly Violet

Thursday June 30th at 6:15 pm at Gyro Park, Trail BC

The Trail & District Arts Council is very excited to get the community together again at Kootenay Savings Music in The Park! NEW! Admission is by donation – $3 minimum suggested. Or buy a Season Pass Button for the whole season for just $50. Your Season Pass button can be purchased on-line or at The Bailey Theatre Box Office in person or by phone. Buttons purchased online or by phone can be picked up at Gyro Park on show night.

Opening up tonight’s sounds at 6:15 pm is Sly Violet. Sly Violet is an energetic, indie folk-rock-pop husband-and-wife duo based in Salmo. Featuring Violet Clarke (guitar, harmonica, keyboard, vocals) and Sly Boston (drums), their shows are lively and upbeat. Their modern folk music is driven by Violet’s guitar, woven with powerful vocals, and completed with Sly’s pocket drum beats. Sly Violet has independently released 3 studio albums. “This is some up beat folk ‘tunage’ best described as ‘modern folk.’ In Violet’s voice I hear the confidence of a seasoned performer such as Neco Case or Lily Frost.” — Colin Lock, Fernie Free Press

Headlining tonight, The Heavyweights Brass Band hits hard from 7-8 pm with its seasoned blend of groove, energy, virtuosity, and originality! For over a decade, this Toronto-based, New Orleans-inspired brass institution has brought people to their feet with an inspiring blend of original music and unexpected covers. Their music has been featured on film, commercials, radio, and television and they have performed and recorded with the best in the game from percussion legend Giovanni Hidalgo to NOLA legends Roger Lewis of the Dirty Dozen Brass band and Joe Lastie of Preservation Hall fame. Their extensive touring experience has given them the opportunity to share the stage with the likes of Trombone Shorty, The Roots, and The Soul Rebels, among many others. In a genre typically represented by groups twice its size, this powerhouse quintet punches above its weight and always delivers the feel-good, let-loose energy that leaves audiences clamouring for one more song!

Music in the Park is held at Trail’s Gyro Park every Thursday starting at 6.15 pm, except for the Night Market shows on July 7 and August 4 when the event will run from 5 pm-9pm. Come down and feel the buzz again at this fabulous outdoor summer event. With entrance by donation, Kootenay Savings Music in the Park is the perfect opportunity to bring a lawn chair or a blanket, get outside and listen to live music with friends. Please remember, No Smoking, No Dogs, and especially No Smoking Dogs!

Admission is by donation – $3 minimum suggested. Or buy a Season Pass Button for the whole season for just $50. Your Season Pass button will be available at The Bailey Theatre Box Office or at Gyro Park on show night.
