DAVE LANG & THE INSOLENT RABBLE
May

9:00 pm21:00

DAVE LANG & THE INSOLENT RABBLE

Dave Lang and his group “the Insolent Rabble” play jazz and swing like it was meant to be played. Their music is irreverent, fast, and fun. The only flats they worry about happen on the road and they can’t pronounce Phrygian but they’re pretty sure it has something to do with cold beer.

This band changes the way people think about jazz. Their original tunes like “Ou Est La Vache” and “She Just Went Crazy” are as well received as their novel arrangements of jazz standards.

MARLEY DAEMON and COMBUSTION LENTE

DOUBLE BILL

MARLEY DAEMON's songs are about revolution – psychological, social and environmental. Her songs call us home to ourselves, drawing us back into connection with the natural world and the freedom that is available in every moment. 

As we experience a planetary shift (in ‘climate’ – both inner and outer), many of us grapple more urgently with questions of human identity, our relationship to nature, and what it means to live an authentic life. Sung with emotional and haunting melodies, Marley’s lyrics offer us insight into the human condition, speaking to the most modern concerns of our personal and planetary predicament while retaining a timeless beauty.

http://marleydaemon.ca/

Québec native COMBUSTION LENTE (aka Myriam Parent) has lived on the Canadian West Coast since 2004. The indiefolk-classical artist records a first album in 2010, Urgence; a collection of ukulele-based songs well received on the local and canadien French music scene. 

Supported by her sweet new Victoria band, Combustion Lente is thrilled to launch her most recent album, Bon gré Mal gré (For better and For worst) in May 2016. An eclectic album, half instrumental pieces, in which the musician embraces her classical piano roots.
