Tin Town Tuesday at Avalanche

Tin Town will be next week's featured band at the Jilli Martini Showcase night at the Avalanche. 

Tin Town will be next week’s featured band at the Jilli Martini Showcase night at the Avalanche.

Tin Town is a cool, bustling little town within a town, tucked away in a corner of Courtenay off Cousins Avenue. This is where the band Tin Town was born.

This eclectic group of musicians and talents came together by chance, to create an unmistakeable sound and a plurality of styles and grooves.

This band currently consists of eight members. There are multi- vocalists, keys, horns, drums, bass and several guitars.

Band founder and singer-songwriter Sperlin (of the Freakin’ Coffeeshop) is a pleasure to watch and listen to as he leads the band effortlessly, with his incredibly calm and chill demeanor.

You wouldn’t know it, that he has only been singing and leading a band for just over a year. His style and confidence will have you fooled.

The Jilli Martini Band will start the night off at 8 and Tin Town will play at 9.

Tin Town will also appear at the Bridge Lounge on the following Saturday (May 5) opening for the Boom Booms at the Bridge Lounge.

May 5 is Elevate the Arts day, Check out this all-day, all ages, all over downtown event in the heart of Courtenay. Tons of local musicians will be playing at varying locations, including the Jilli Martini Band! Join them at Joe’s Garage.
