you know what to do!
Looks like May will be a busy month for live entertainment. Hope y'all will venture into the wild and check out some of the fabulous and CheckCa-friendly shows.
In case you are not already aware, there is band out there playing funk, soul, neosoul, R&B, jazz, and other goodies on the Winnipeg scene called Soul Station. Hmm, that music list sounds very much like Check Ca! The core members of the band are jazz up-and-comers Joanna Majoko, Jocelyn Gould and Karl Kohut, though Soul Station has also had amonst its rank Curtis Nowosad, Kevin Waters, Julian Bradford, and other talented folk. In case you want a taste of what these cats can do, check out Joanna Majoko's jazz gig at The Current Lounge (at the Inn at the Forks hotel) on May 9 (Friday) from 9-midnight.
... and you definitely want to check out Check Ca friends from Balanced Records, a local record label that features some of Winnipeg's (and Canada's) hottest electronic deejays. May 10 (Saturday) is the Balanced Records 13th Anniversary Party at the Fox & Fiddle in the Exchange area. Promised on the bill are deejays Kasm and Redworm (who also host Quadrafunk right after Check Ca on Friday nights!), the happily-awaited return of Solidaze, and recent Montreal transplant The Seed Organization. Balanced will also be around for MEME later this summer too!
Check out the 1st edition of 'Hip Hop Karaoke' hosted by Union Sound Hall (110 Market Street, Winnipeg) on Thursday, May 15, 2014. Check Union Sound Hall's Facebook page for more details on the event and the register for hip hop domination (well, at least in karaoke ).
Saturday, May 17, 2014 will see the latest edition of '1001 Nights' at the Pyramid Cabaret hosted by MEME. Check out DJs CHRIS KOMUS, NATHAN ZAHN, THEO TZU and KASM. Should be a fun and interesting night.
More to come...
