The Leg Up Program
January 21, 2017 @
The Waverley Hotel
From SkaFest in Victoria to Elevate the Arts here in the Valley, this band puts out the serious dance grooves.
An exciting co-presentation of Elevate the Arts and Cumberland Village Works.
Originating in Victoria, BC, the awesome 17-piece collective of funk, soul, hip hop, r&b musicians that make up The Leg-Up Program are a force to be reckoned with! At times, they are a soul band with raspy lead vocals and beautifully sculpted harmonies; at times, they are a funk band with wild horn lines and groovy bass and drums; at times they are a hip hop group with catchy hooks and solid beats; and at times, they are sweet and sultry, keeping the audience fully engaged with the slowest of ballads. Amongst it all, is a group of people who simply love to make music and inspire others to get up and dance and become a part of all the fun! Each one is a talented musician and their original material stays with you like any hit song. It’s safe to say, this band has it all. This instant party band works hard and it shows.
From Fernfest, Ska Fest and last year’s Elevate the Arts in Courtenay, this band drives the dance floor hard. Stoked to see them in Cumberland for the first time.
