Tidemark provides venue for artists

The Tidemark Theatre in Campbell River has partnered to present the Lounge Series to help showcase local musicians

In an effort to bring more music to the community of Campbell River and to open a new venue option to local and touring Canadian musicians, the Tidemark Theatre has teamed up with Ellisa Hartman of River Town Productions to create the Tidemark Lounge Series.

All costs have been donated by the Tidemark, including staff time, equipment, and venue rental.

The series kicked off last Thursday night with a bang and will be every Thursday night from now until November 22.

Last week provided stunning performances from Doris Wagner, Alana Johnson, and Wire Choir. Wagner won her audience over with her humour and her sultry voice, singing old standards from the 40s, 50s and 60s.

Johnson intrigued her audience with childhood stories about growing up listening to her influences of jazz gods and goddesses, which greatly showed in her renditions of Sarah Vaughan and Ray Charles classics.

Wire Choir finished the night with its mix of original and creative covers in the jazz genre.  Their fine musicianship and instrumentation was extremely well executed and a thrill to listen to.

This Thursday promises to be another great evening filled with more amazing music.

Admission is by donation at the door of the Tidemark.  Doors open at 6:30 p.m., show starts at 7 p.m.  The venue is licensed and the concession is full of beverages and snacks. Artists will have CDs and merchandise for sale. All proceeds go towards the musicians.  For more information, visit www.tidemarktheatre.com or www.facebook.com/tidemarktheatre and look under events.
