Wade Benson CD Release with guest Arun Pal Band

May 8, 2012 @ 8:30 pm

$15 – $18

What do you get when you pair a rootsy singer/songwriter with the grooviest rhythm section in the city… a night not to be missed!  This is a rare chance to see Wade’s new album ‘The Pal Sessions’ live by the musicians who built it.  “I stole a friend’s band for my last album and regret never having had the chance to get on stage with all of them”.

“Adding and reacting to the grooves that Arun and Dave were laying down in the studio was easily the most gratifying musical experience I’ve had to date.  I cannot possibly put into words how excited I am to be playing live with these guys at Hugh’s Room!”

The Arun Pal Band will be opening the night and supporting Wade’s set:-

Arun Pal (Piano/Drums/Singing at same time and Guitar) with Dave Jones (Drum Kit, Bass and maybe Guitar!) and Sam Dlugokecki (Bass, Percussion and maybe Guitar!) form the Arun Pal Band.

Over the past 15 years Arun has released over 25 CDs as a co-member, writer, performer and producer of numerous Canadian bands including 3 solo projects.  His latest effort highlights his piano/drum/singing at the same time circus act!  It also features more earthy rhythm and drum compositions supported by his talented band mates who are also multi-instrumentalists.  Look for Arun’s new live album in both audio and DVD formats.

“To say Arun Pal is prodigiously talented is an understatement” (Errol Nazareth – CBC Radio 1)
