Three of Vancouver’s most soulful bands get together to celebrate the release of David Ward’s new suite, Transitioning.
This is the third of three concerts that has seen Ward go from a stripped back solo performance to playing one of Vancouver’s premier stages with his own band and a seven-piece chamber orchestra.
This is the debut performance of the suite in the configuration it was recorded. Prepare for an epic display of art rock and soul from the man The Guardian voted “Most likely to: be assured of a golden future.”
Joining the night is Dawn Pemberton and her heavy-hitting band The Good Almighty. Vibrant, genuine and soulful, Dawn has deep musical roots that take her powerful voice from gospel, soul to jazz and funk hitting you where it counts.
Also on the bill, are Star Captains, a fleet of five whose musical space quest is navigated by a shared love for soul, beats, rock, and rhythm. Star Captain’s music is best described as hip-hop + soul + Stevie Wonder (as presented by a time traveling Jimi Hendrix during the 80s).
