Performing August 23, 2023 – Our FINAL summer concert: Checo Tohomaso and VOC Sweet Soul Gospel Choir
Performing from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m., the first half showcases Checo Tohomaso keeping sweet soul alive, taking inspiration from Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, and Marvin Gaye. For the second half Checo is joined by the VOC Sweet Soul Gospel Choir to deliver some dancing, toe tapping, energetic music!
Stick around for the grand finale!
The Carnival Band – performing from 8 to 9 p.m. for the Lantern procession.
Many of the Carnival Band’s favourite tunes are originals by band members. The remainder of their monstrous repertoire includes samba, calypso, swing, afrobeat, jazz, funk, disco, and traditional music from around the globe.
The band believes that community music is grounded in collaboration, with the aim of empowering the individuals involved. Songs and performances are a means to creative expression and community cohesiveness, rather than an end in themselves.
If you have a desire to learn and perform, they can help make your dream come true. Some instruments are available for loan, and some of the band members teach music professionally. They do this because they love it, and because it makes the neighbourhood smile!
