MUSIC YYC FUNDRAISER: COWPUNCHER, THE RIVER AND THE ROAD, THE WISERS

Wednesday 05th, March 2014 / 16:10

THE PALOMINO, FEBRUARY 28, 2014

Music YYC is an inspired initiative that is currently working to further support, encourage and enhance the vibrant music scene that is undoubtedly embedded within the fabric of Calgary’s culture. Despite being relatively new, Music YYC has been making huge strides when it comes to exposure, along with the amazing musicians that reside in our city, and Friday’s fundraising event at the Palomino was extremely successful in supplementing just that.

The event took place in the acoustically solid and infinitely cool basement of the Palomino Smokehouse, which acted as a perfect venue for the energetically eclectic crowd that came out to see a few killer bands. With many familiar faces of those who are focal points in Calgary’s music scene, as well as many fans that keep the scene alive, it was a perfect merriment of cultures coming together to support an outstanding cause.

The Wisers started off the performance portion of the night with their own brand of bluesy rock & roll. The crowd on the dance floor was tentative and sparse initially, but slowly as The Wisers energy increased – as well as the crowd’s level of alcohol consumption – everyone began rocking out with them.

The River and the Road followed, serenading the audience with their charmingly happy folk tunes. This four-piece act from Vancouver rounded out their original sound with acoustic guitars, a banjo, electric bass and drums. TRATR successfully encouraged the crowd to start dancing with their magnetic stage presence, insane group drumming sessions and their noticeable musical talent.

Adorning themselves with masks, headpieces and other creative (borderline creepy) accessories to enhance their unique appeal, Cowpuncher finished the night. This five-piece local band blends folk and roots with rock & roll sensibilities. Both enthusiastically engaging and dangerously dynamic, Cowpuncher ended the night with tons of dancing, foot stomping and smiles all around.

Being Music YYC’s first official fundraising event, it was fitting that the vibe of the entire evening felt fresh and extremely inspired. Despite the -30 degree weather, the crowd, the bands and the event organizers embraced each other warmly, leaving an impactful impression on everyone fortunate enough to be there.
