Hailing from Victoria, B.C., The Leg-Up Program is an awesome 17-piece collective of funk, soul, hip hop, r&b musicians.
They’re a musical force to be reckoned with and they’re hitting the stage at The Waverley Hotel Saturday, Jan. 21.
At times, they are a soul band with raspy lead vocals and beautifully sculpted harmonies; at times, they are a funk band with wild horn lines and groovy bass and drums; at times they are a hip hop group with catchy hooks and solid beats; and at times, they are sweet and sultry, keeping the audience fully engaged with the slowest of ballads.
This band has it all.
From Fernfest, Ska Fest and last year’s Elevate the Arts in Courtenay where they threw a crazy street level dance party, this band drives the dance floor hard. Music lovers are super stoked to see them in Cumberland for the first time. Tickets $15 advance at Bop City Records, The Waverley Hotel, by phone 250-336-8322 and online at www.CumberlandVillageWorks.com
