The Return Of Tornado Tuesday @ 4 Peaks Nightclub
May 21 @ 9:00 pm – 2:00 am

Join us this May 21st for the season opener of Tornado Tuesday at 4Peaks Nightclub! This weekly night will be running all summer long with a focus on underground electronic music with local producer and DJ, Riki Rocket and friends on the decks.

With a fresh rotation of monthly talented producers and DJs from Western Canada joining our summer schedule, expect to hear the best in breaks, house, techno, ghetto funk and bass music and on 4Peaks new sound system!

To kick off the season we have Calgary based Nic Nemesis coming in with a style of house music that he describes as chunky, funky, and dynamic. Always the entertainer, the DJ Nemesis brand of house is one tailored towards moving hips and feet on the dance floor. This new direction caught the attention of key promoters, and in 2016 Nemesis was invited to perform at Chasing Summer Music Festival, a position he’s continued to hold every year. He’s also shared the stage with artists like Billy Kenny, Kill Frenzy, and Gorgon City, all names he describes as influences to his sound.

Make sure you arrive early to take advantage of our Happy Hour prices from 9 – 11pm.

Children of the Wave

Surf Rock-Doom Metal pioneers Children of the Wave are doing a tour of BC (and one day in Alberta!) to promote their debut self-titled album!

Children of the Wave are a groundbreaking tribute band, playing exclusively Black Sabbath songs in a bright, fast, and exciting surf-rock style. Their first album Children of the Wave is a complete reworking of Black Sabbath’s classic treasure Master of Reality. The album was released in October 2017 on Good Egg Records, to a sold out crowd in the band’s hometown of Prince George, BC.

Children of the Wave bring an exciting live show that breathes new energy into your favourite Black Sabbath songs. Fans of all genres will enjoy this unique and exhilarating concert experience that melds the heavy with the light-hearted.

Richard Garvey

Richard Garvey is guitar-strumming, banjo-plucking, and sing-along-starting performer and community organizer from Kitchener. His award winning songs explore the highs and lows of love, injustice, and the marbled mess of the human condition. Whether he’s playing to a living room or an amphitheatre, Richard brings clever songs and a sly sense of humour to inspire solidarity, hope, and change. If you’re looking for the latest incarnation of world-changing, foot-stomping, and heart-filling folk music, see Richard Garvey

May 30th Live @TheOliveBistro Travis Matthews and his Dad @ Olive Bistro & Lounge
May 30 @ 8:00 pm – 1:30 am

Tickets are 10$ with food bank donation or 15$ without. All proceeds from tickets go to the musicians, Save the date!!

Travis Matthews is a musician from Edmonton, Alberta who has been gaining popularity at an alarming rate within the Albertan Folk music scene. Having opened for acts such as Gunning & Cormier, Ruthie Foster and Kat dancer, Travis is experienced in entertaining small and large crowds alike. After a year of playing sold-out venues opening for these acts, the feeling of loneliness from performing solo became too prominent for Travis. He began searching far and wide for the perfect musician to share the stage with. It was around that time that Travis’ dad began to feel bad for his sons’ fruitless search and decided to reveal his true identity (which he had been keeping secret from Travis all this time). That identity, to Travis’ shock, was being the lead guitarist for K.D Lang and The Reclines (1983-1990) as well as Ian Tysons acoustic trio (1998-2008). Travis was flooded with mixed emotions once he heard the news and let his Dad tryout for part. Travis’ dad dusted off his old baritone guitar and brought magic to Travis’ songs in ways he’d never dreamed of. Travis claimed that he was, “good enough I guess” and accepted his father into the act. They are now coming to a venue near you to sing sweet nothings into your lovely ears. So get yourself some tickets and don’t miss out on this one of a kind experience.

Ora Rangi Sound Healing Experience @ Jasper Wellness
Jun 15 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join Filip and Vaclava for a Sound healing relaxation experience:

It is the primary technique of holistic music therapy in which the participants are affected by the beneficial sounds of natural tuned native instruments – such as the didgeridoo, singing bowls, shamanic drum, harp, mouthbow, or koncovka – played by the therapist. These instruments possess a unique ability to produce notes capable of healing the human body and harmonizing all bodily systems. A calm and relaxed state is gradually induced. The participants’ bodies get fully relaxed as tension and pain drain out of them.

It helps re-establishing the client’s emotional, physical, and mental balance, improves concentration and boosts the body’s immune system.

Ora Rangi

The Māori phrase “ora rangi” can be loosely translated as “living music”. When we began studying holistic music therapy under Dr Lubomír Holzer at the Palacký University in Olomouc, Czech Republic, we had no idea just how alive music could be. As time passed we started to discover the transformational and healing potential of natural music thanks to our dedicated lecturer and natural tuned native instruments. A new life has begun!!!

Several years later we embarked on a journey to find out more about another country as well as ourselves. We found New Zealand captivating and inspiring enough to state the following intention:

“To live in harmony with the order of the universe; to serve all creatures well; to become ora rangi.”

Filip:

“Through natural music I am able to experience the world and myself at a whole new level. It is a never-ending adventure. I will be glad to share it with you.”

Vaclava:

“Music is the joy of my life. Natural music also allows me to get in touch with the essence of myself and the world around us. I am looking forward to our mutual meeting and sharing.”

Choral Days with Jane Berry @ Jasper Community Habitat for the Arts
Jul 24 @ 10:00 am – Jul 25 @ 6:00 pm

Take a two day workshop in voice and physical expression!

In two days Jane will walk students through a musical repertoire that will expose them to simple choral arrangements of current popular songs while the vocal techniques that they will learn will blend classical and popular styles of singing.
She will bring some choral arrangements of her own to work with the group while having them design a work of their own over the two days.
She also brings elements of movement and physical expression into the work so this workshop will appeal to anyone who is interested in theatre as well.

“What I really love doing is building confidence in singers and getting them to express themselves in ways, and pertaining to topics, that they find important. I love the challenge of working with individuals of varying skill and knowledge levels and when they create music I get them to develop abstract scores so there really is no need for knowledge of music notation or singing experience.”
_______________________________________________

Jane Berry moved to Edmonton to start her PhD of Philosophy in Music Theory in the fall of 2011. Shortly after her arrival she began singing with Pro Coro Canada and quickly became integrated within the local choral community. She is the director of ETown Minors (a choir developed for at risk youth), section lead for ETown Augmented and in-house arranger for both groups. She is co-founder of Femme vocal ensemble, has taught a number of courses at the University of Alberta, sings with various new music ensembles, volunteers with local youth and works as a composer and visual artist.
Jane holds a Masters of Arts in Music Theory from the University of Ottawa (2011), a Bachelors of Music in Composition from Acadia University (2005), and is currently working on a degree in Education at the University of Alberta.

Fall Program – 200 Hour Abhaya Yoga Teacher Training Jasper @ Jasper Wellness
Sep 20 @ 7:00 am – Sep 20 @ 6:30 pm

Abhaya 200 Hour Interdisciplinary Yoga Teacher Training:

Yoga is a continually evolving practice, as we combine practice with intention and our everyday life, we can find a harmonious balance of yoga on and off of the mat.

What was once presented as the do’s and don’t of yoga may not translate to the world we live in today.

Over the years we have learned from many traditional gurus, and have seen yoga become mainstream.

There are a multitude of practices and modalities associated with the word yoga therefore we will study Eastern & Western traditions of body, mind and spiritual practice.

This teacher training will take a non-authoritative approach to teaching yoga so that the practitioner can evolve and develop his or her own style and approach to the practice, being able to speak from one’s own experience.

Our hope is that you will be able to experiment during this training to discover who you are at the core of your being, and use this to influence your own personal practice and growth, or pass on knowledge and passion as a yoga instructor.

✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

Join Jasper locals Marla Pollock, Steph Sophocleous & Jenna McGrath plus guest teachers as they take you on a journey of self exploration and discovery.

This training will give you broad knowledge, and a solid base to begin your personal or professional yogic journey. This training will leave you with your 200 Hour Yoga Teaching Certification that you may use to certify with the Yoga Alliance. Our program is fully accredited by the Yoga Alliance.

Topics covered in depth for a solid understanding and base in:

– History of Yoga
