Fiftieth Parallel is one of three acts performing in the Tidemark’s Lounge Series tomorrow night. The series runs every Thursday until Nov. 22.

Local talent lounges at Tidemark

The lobby is transformed into a vintage inspired lounge

As autumn rolls in, the Tidemark Theatre’s feature of local talent kicks off in its lobby tomorrow.

With minimal effort, the lobby is transformed into a vintage inspired lounge. Candles and twinkly lights set an intimate mood, but the talent of the local musicians is what set the scene for a comfortable evening with friends while the rain falls outside. This week is no exception with the musical musings of locals Brodie Dawson, Fiftieth Parallel, and Andreas Eggenberger.

Eggenberger was born in Campbell River but his family ventured over to Switzerland when he was seven.

He’s been educated in classical and jazz music and has performed in different trio’s and ensembles. After highschool Eggenberger moved back to his birth town of Campbell River where he picked up an old guitar and learned how to play and write his own compositions.  Accomplishments include winning a Vancouver Island song writing competition which led to performances at the Vancouver Island Music Festival and the Tidemark Theatre.  He has been performing locally for years at different venues and events.

Fiftieth Parallel are local boys who have caused quite a stir with their unique slap-style guitar. Filled with heavy harmonics and intricate grooves, their music will keep your heart thrumming away to the beat of their drum.  They’ve opened for the likes of Shane Phillip, Delhi 2 Dublin, and the Mindil Beach Markets. Cruising around in their 1986 camper van was their main method of transport over the past summer while playing at The Big Time Out and Rhythm on the Rock. Their debut album Weapon of the Future was released in 2011 and they are busy in the studio working on their next album

With Brodie Dawson, It’s her voice that jumps out at you… she makes a clear, direct hit and seduces you with a smoky overtone. She has a beautiful, clear voice and communicates so very well, the honesty and emotion of her down to earth lyrics. Her refreshingly peaceful and sensual personality pours out and lathers the soul with the mood of each song, leaving a clean finish and plenty of imagination for those who appreciate a heartfelt songwriter’s work.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the music starts at 7 p.m. It is an all ages licensed event and admission is by donations. All donations go directly into the pockets of the musicians. All costs are donated by the Tidemark Theatre in an effort to bring the community back into the heart of the Tidemark.
