On March 22, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at the Shambhala Music & Performance Hall listen to Stephen Beck (progressive rock, heavy metal), Calvin Reid (hard rock, metal, jazz).
Stephen grew up in a small town, on a small farm, in a not-so-musical family. Music was rarely played in the house and most of what he heard was what his mum liked to listen too on road trips. Stephen's relationship with music started when I was 6 and first heard the CCR tune Travelin' Band. I felt something I had never felt before and immediately wanted to play it. I badgered my older brother Robert to teach me how to play guitar well enough to learn it and he did. I then became obsessed with the guitar. I had regular lessons for over a decade, but was still unsure what I really wanted out of life until November 2018 when our CMA class played the Selkirk Gala. I always knew music was going to be a part of my life but this was the tipping point that assured me music is my path.
Calvin Reid is a 24-year old studying music in the Kootenay’s of British Columbia. Born and raised in central Alberta, Calvin has been playing drums for almost twenty years. His early exposure to hard rock and heavy metal had cemented within him a very stable foundation of rhythm and loud, hard playing styles. On top of this, his academic studies in jazz and contemporary music throughout the past two years have propelled the growing musician towards a very unique and nuanced sound. His visions of epic, and inspiring heavy metal music from youth still hold strong, and the young musician wants nothing more than to bring people together through the celebration of it in all of its forms.
Doors open at 7 and admission is by donation.
