The Bills with Mildly Wild
July 8, Dinner 6pm, Concert 8pm
“The Bills are the biggest blast of fresh air to come out of Canada since The Band”
– Glasgow Herald
With two previous JUNO nominations and multiple Western Canadian Music Awards under their belts, expect the musical magic you’ve come to love from this extraordinary quintet. The Bills are renowned for their instrumental virtuosity, lush vocal arrangements, evocative songwriting, and a refreshing sound that transcends musical boundaries and defies simple categorization. Strings, bellows, keys, voices, skin and bows – these are the vehicles for The Bills’ unique sonic approach. With individual band members sporting world-class credentials in folk/roots, jazz, classical and world music, The Bills truly are a Canadian acoustic music super-group, and their combined creative studio talent and explosive live shows have made them legendary folk/roots entertainers. www.thebills.ca BAND WEBSITE
“Sometimes it all lines up – the song, the voice, the music. You feel every atom in the room do a little shimmy. That’s the feeling we want to share.”
Lead singer Eryn Sharpe, along with Guitarist Leon Nagasaki, and Upright Bassist Nick Mintenko began playing Jazz together a few years ago as the Eryn Sharpe Trio. What started off as a nostalgic obsession with their parents’ (and even grandparents’) music, turned into regular gigs, original song writing, an album, and now a 5-piece band – Mildly Wild.
