Three acts share the stage at the Waverley for New Year’s Eve

The Waverley Hotel will be rocking in 2017 with an alternative triple bill of live acts. Joy District, Little Bird and Lady K will all take the stage at the popular Cumberland venue.

The Comox Valley’s own Joy District (formerly MCM) is an alternative rock band featuring brothers Eli and Jordi Hilberry and lifelong friends Lenny Parkin and Keelan Gamble. Since 2007, MCM/Joy District has shared the stage with a number of great acts including: Mother Mother, Bedouin Soundclash, Head of the Heard, The Boom Booms, and many more.

Infectious vocal melodies, thick harmonies, a rock solid rhythm section, and gripping guitar solos define Joy District’s modern, unique sound.

Little Bird, the brainchild of Cumberlanders Samuel H. Woywitka and Ronny Bernard, is a band whose sound can only be described as Django Reinhardt, Dr. Dre, Jack White and Modest Mouse all rolled up into one.

Although Woywitka and Bernard knew each other growing up, it wasn’t until they had both moved to Vancouver – Bernard as a blues artist and Woywitka as a producer – that they would collaborate musically.

Sam would produce Ron’s debut EP in Vancouver. This collaboration would sprout the first inklings of starting a group together.

Soon after Woywitka produced Bernard’s debut EP, Little Bird was hatched.

Lady K’s passion for music began as a four-year-old child, playing a paper keyboard and hearing music in her head. After finishing a bachelor of music in education and composition 20 years later, she walked away from the classical world to explore more basstastic realms. Her passion for tropical beats, world rhythms and bass bangers ignites her unbridled enthusiasm, which she spreads effortlessly and relentlessly.

Tickets for this triple bill thrill ($22.50 plus tax) are available at Bop City, The Waverley, by phone at 250-336-8322 and online at CumberlandVillageWorks.com
