Sinistrio slides into Cumberland

Saturday, April 25 at 8 p.m. at Studio Live

Sinistiro

Constantly looking for ways to push the boundaries of music, Sinistrio has found their own unique niche in the Canadian music scene.

Drawing comparisons to groups like Soulive, The Bad Plus, Larry Goldings, and Medeski Martin & Wood, Sinistrio is a groove-based trio that seamlessly brings together modern jazz and retro soul with a unique kind of texture, tone and richness.

This talented trio featuring drummer Jon May, keyboardist Steven Fletcher and guitarist Jeff Drummond are quick to admit that even though they may not always know where creativity may take them, it is the journey that is in fact half the fun.

On stage, it is that same journey that draws in audiences and makes the band so unique. Combine that with original compositions, the odd cover or unique arrangement, and you have a versatile, insightful band that is selling out concerts, without ever selling out.

Sinistrio joined forces in early 2006, after playing together they knew something felt right.

Sinistrio has been touring and honing their musical craft, from coast to coast. Sinistrio’s successful self titled debut album, was closely followed by the release of their second album Ride The Dragon, which has been well received all over North America.

Studio Live is excited to present these great musicians in what promises to be an amazing musical evening on Saturday, April 25 at 8 p.m.

Tickets are available in advance for $15 at Bop City Records, Courtenay, Blue Heron Books, Comox and Rider’s Pizza, Cumberland or (if available) at the door $20. Studio Live is located at 2679 Beaufort Ave., Cumberland.
