Tune in to a Chisel Peak performance this Saturday

Show at The Station Pub 9 p.m.

Special to the Pioneer

The sounds of roots and blues with a hint of electric guitar will return to The Station for Taynton Bay Spirit’s second anniversary celebration.

The Chisel Peak trio will perform on Saturday, May 18th between 9 p.m. and midnight with a wide variety of tunes.

“This will be our first performance at The Station,” said Emily Rawbon, who performs vocals, as well plays the acoustic and electric guitars.

“We’re excited to have been asked to perform at this venue and look forward to seeing our local fan base as well as have an opportunity to perform for our part-time locals and visitors.”

Ms. Rawbon will be joined by Ian Wilson, who does vocals and plays bass, the acoustic guitar and the harmonica, and James Reimer, a drummer and vocalist.

“Over the last five years, we have evolved from a blues cover trio with an acoustic sound to one with a mostly electric sound and enough originals to record our first album,” she told the Pioneer. “As well, our drummer James has upped the ante by singing and drumming to his own song, He’s a Man, a tribute to the fictional character The Dude from the 1998 movie, ‘The Big Lebowski.’”

When asked if their show would include original songs or covers, Ms. Rawbon replied: “Guaranteed! We play a myriad of classic rock and blues numbers including songs from Tracy Chapman, The Kinks, Eric Clapton and R.E.M to name a few. We also perform about a dozen or so original numbers that we’re hoping will be crowd favourites… someday.”

The three-piece roots and blues band from Invermere has a self-proclaimed deadpan sense of humour with a solid sound.

There is no cover to attend the Chisel Peak Performance.

“Just show up, eat, drink and be merry,” Ms. Rawbon concluded. “Dancing is encouraged.”
