There will be toasts and treats and hours of tasty beats Dec. 31 in Cumberland.

Expect music and celebration Waverley Hotel style with the Bananafish Dance Orchestra. Tickets are limited.

Bananafish is an eight-piece powerhouse groove sensation! With a three-piece horn section and a five-piece rhythm section, the music starts playing and the dancing never stops.

From Latin to funk, jazz fusion to reggae and ska, this band has been proven to keep you movin’. It’s members are all Vancouver Island residents and have either attended or graduated from the VIU jazz degree program.

Bananafish Dance Orchestra played throughout B.C, including Vancouver and Victoria with appearances including Rhythm on the Rock last summer. We are stoked to bring their dancy grooves back to the Waverley!

Opening the night is Annie Becker.

When Becker sings, people listen. Her soulful, sultry voice and undeniably playful charisma will have your feet tapping before you know it.

Her music is flavoured with a blend of bohemian-style pop, a touch of soul, layered on top of a folk foundation. As Annie’s voice booms over catchy musical harmonies, it displays hints of Regina Spektor quirkiness delivered with the power of Adele with a cheerful honesty that remains dominant throughout every note she plays.

Although Annie’s artistic journey is one of connectivity and humanity, that collective outlook stands in contrast with the fierce individuality of her music.

For more about the musicians, visit www.myspace.com/bananafishdanceorchestra and www.myspace.com/anniebeckermusic.

Tickets are available at Bop City, the Waverley or online at www.cumberlandvillageworks.com. Doors open Dec. 31 at 9 p.m.
