Layered, melodic, poignant, and authentic. These aren’t words we use lightly, but when we are talking about the music of the incredibly talented Dave Orrett, we must start somewhere. Dave himself would say the music is where words end….and where celebration, healing, and euphoria begin.
It has been 11 years since former Hugh’s room regular Dave Orrett performed original music live but at last the time has come, and Hugh’s Room seems the perfect place. This is the kind of music you want to lean in and listen to. Stories and harmonies that span over two decades are mixed with a wealth of new material.
A brief history starts over 15 years ago when the Dave Orrett Band toured Southern Ontario and Quebec. His poignant acoustic music earned him regular airplay on CBC radio as well as TV spots in Toronto and Ottawa. In 2008, stepping away from composing, Dave focused his energy on the production of dozens of other artists. He also spent a decade developing a major music academy in his name on Bloor Street; Orrett Music Academy, which has already inspired thousands of young musicians.
On June 8, Dave returns with what can only be called an absolute All-Star Band of all new musicians featuring:
Composer and Pianist – Dave Orrett
Singer – Oliver Pigott (Canadian Idol, The Celebration Army)
Guitarist and Singer – KC Roberts (KC Roberts and the Live Revolution)
Bassist – Alex St. Kitts
Drummer – Chad Davis
Singer – Malak Sound
Cellist – Sam Bisson
Synth – Dan Miller
Each member of this formidable band leads their own successful band in the city. Bringing them together is a testament not only to Dave’s music and positive spirit, but is also a sign of the musical excitement this night will surely bring.
Expect a bold fusion of styles from classical to pop, funk to folk, even jazz and rock. Book tickets now for an evening of brilliant music among friends. Due to demand, ticket purchases are highly recommended in advance.
