Strictly in the Groove
R & B Allstars play Harrison May 26
Bryan Cutler/Harrison Festival
The popular R&B Allstars 12-piece band will be at Harrison May 26.
f you were a music fan in Vancouver in the late 1980s and 1990s, chances are you are familiar with the R&B Allstars. A dynamic, eleven-piece band performing classic R&B, the Allstars was formed in 1980 and gained popularity at venues like The Town Pump, The Commodore, Richards on Richards and 86th Street.
Tickets for the Festival Fundraiser which kicks off at 7:30 pm are $45.00 and can be purchased online at www.harrisonfestival.com, by phone at 604.796.3664 or in person at the Ranger Station Art Gallery in Harrison and Agassiz Shoppers Drug Mart on Pioneer Ave.
a decade of recuperation from “groove fatigue” the band reformed in 2013 and
has been performing with renewed vigour, winning audiences over with their
exciting interpretations of music from classic artists such as Al Green, Sam
and Dave, and Aretha Franklin.
However, Hillhouse believes, raising funds is only one of the positive bi-products of the fundraiser, the other being community spirit. “Putting on an event like this brings the whole community on-board to make the festival happen. It increases their ownership of the event.”
