Alice Francis brings her high-energy live show to the Waverley Hotel Saturday night.

Alice Francis Trio comes to the village

Live at the Waverley Hotel Saturday night

Direct from Berlin, the Alice Francis trio returns to the Canadian West Coast for a limited number of engagements, including the Waverley Hotel in Cumberland, Saturday, June 18.

With support from the Vancouver Island swing dance community, some serious moves are anticipated on the the new Waverley dance floor.

Alice Francis and Goldielocks stage an extraordinary live show. While front woman Francis looks after the song and dance and Sir Chulmin-Yoo simulates a background chorus with a harmonizer, Goldielocks – equipped with Ableton Live and a Novation Launchpad – functions as a one-man big band.

Special guest Daniel Trump

Bringing you the old and mixed with new, West Coast swing cat Daniel Trump will take you on a journey back in time, when the music was classy, sassy and full of brass. With more than 10 years experience, Trump dabbles in various styles of music.

Drawing upon the electro-swing that accentuates many layers and textures, combined with high energy, inspirational vocals, and a dash of debonair, there’s sure to be a zoot suit riot.

Special guest Mt. Eliah

Multi-tempo, multi-genre DJ performances fuse much of the world’s most passionate, pleasing, cultural music with the best of underground electronica’s dance beats. Mt. Eliah skillfully blends 4/4 dance tempos you can sleep to or sweat to.

Gypsy, Latin and African influences, stired up with a generous helping of conscious reggae, reggaton, dancehall, cumbia and other bass-heavy, mid-tempo beats, for a feast of extremely fun, danceable music.

Tickets available  at Bop City, the Waverley, by phone 250 336 8322 and online at CumberlandVillageWorks.com
