Lincoln Foster Band takes over Avalanche

The Jilli Martini Showcase Tuesdays at the Avalanche will take a break for the summer and resume in the fall.

The Jilli Martini Showcase Tuesdays at the Avalanche will take a break for the summer and resume in the fall.

For anyone interested in being considered for the fall lineup of performers, contact the Avalanche Bar & Grill Facebook page.

To mark the end of the Tuesday Showcase series for this season, Jilli Martini presents the Lincoln Foster Band, a recent collaboration of four fine Comox Valley musicians, who are ready to rock your socks off.

Lincoln Foster, guitarist Mike Bush, bassist John Rankin and drummer Jordan Bernard are the band. They rock. Their music is their own — their music is classic rock-blues-funk-punk — and not necessarily in that order.

Lincoln’s passion for music comes from listening to the original 45s that his parents listened to — Elvis, Roy, Buddy, Gene, Ray — and, of course, the Beatles, Stones and the subsequent invasion. You can hear other influences such as Bowie, U2, Elvis Costello, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Foo Fighters.

Over the last year or so, JET-FM has played several of the band’s songs on air and they have been well-received.

The Lincoln Foster and Jilli Martini bands perform June 12 from 8 to 11 p.m.
