Prepare yourself for an amazing performance at the Miners Hall this weekend. Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra will be tearing up the stage on Saturday, November 14 as part of the Rossland Council for Arts and Culture Performance Series.

This is the fourth performance in the eclectic 2015/16 series, which has included Argentinian jazz, surf rock, and Improv comedy. Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra adds another element to the diverse performances with their Bohemian, west-coast, roots/folk style.

Since forming in 2006 the group has been like family: listening to each other musically and personally, and moving forward with a “say yes” attitude, incorporating influences from their myriad backgrounds. In International Musician Magazine guitarist Kurt Lowen said “We strive to have an open and creative space for each other and our music. If we start erring on the side of no it won’t just affect our music, it will affect our friendship.”

Saying “yes” has paid off for the group, as noted in Edmonton Art Trends “People throw around the word “tight” when talking about bands but this collection of artists defines it with split second stops and changes, knowing when to temper the fury of sound with moments of tender silence.” Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra is known for their unique sound, which doesn’t fit into any one musical genre. Each musician comes from a different background: Jazz school, tango and flamenco, African hand drumming and electronic, bluegrass, folk, country, rock and punk. In any of their songs three or more of those genres can be heard, blending perfectly together.

The performance takes place Saturday, November 14 at the Rossland Miners Hall, doors open at 7:00pm, the show starts at 7:30. Tickets are $20 and available at the Charles Bailey Theatre Box Office in Trail, at Out of the Cellar in Rossland, and online at www.rosslandartscouncil.com.
