A Blues Yule

This year our 4th annual non-sanctioned, non-official Christmas bash will be a two night affair at the legendary King’s Head Pub and Eatery! Tickets are only $10. Last year’s event sold out so quickly it was decided we needed to go to two nights, Tuesday December 4th and Wednesday December 5th. The doors will open at 5 pm with the first band starting at 6:30 pm. I’m pleased to announce that Price’s very own band, Noise Control, will be opening up the festivities both nights. Noise Control features:

Paul O’Rourke – vocals
Brenda Calder – vocals
Charlene McAlpin – vocals
David Alpert – guitar/vocals
Dave Singleton bass/vocals
Carl Strempler – guitar
Leith McLeod – drums
with special guest Michael Dyck

After the first band there will be time to socialize and order dinner from a select menu (not included in the cover charge). At around 8 pm The Consultants of Swing will be playing two sets of blues and R&B featuring a 5-piece horn section. The Consultants of Swing includes:

Bill Kirkpatrick – vocals/guitar – Retired
Karin Carlson – vocals/trombone – Software Trainer
Carl Strempler – guitar – Price
Adam Halstrom – bass – HP
Greg Boettcher – drums – HP
Dean Clarke – trumpet – Apptius
Rick Strempler – alto sax – Online Business Systems
David Thistlethwaite – tenor sax – Apptius
Shannon Ball – baritone sax – Student
Gary Brenner – keys – Grant Memorial

Get your tickets before they sell out and bring your dancing shoes or just sit back and watch the show! Tickets are available for either night but we are focusing on selling tickets to Price employees for December 5th first.

I thought I would post a clip from a few years ago where Bill Kirkpatrick and the band played the Eric Clapton classic, Wonderful Tonight. Tickets will be on sales soon for just $10.00 each.

Bill Kirkpatrick – guitar and vocals
