Rhythm and Cello is proud to announce that we will be among the many live acts performing at this year’s Phoenix party!
Phoenix Party: The Theme
The theme of the party is Phoenix: Rise from the Ashes. Party guests are invited to come dressed as anyone who no longer walks the Earth/Middle Earth/Hosnian system, etc. Characters may be real (e.g. Bowie), fictional (e.g. Boromir), or figurative (American democracy?). The idea is to fuel the rebirth of their legacies, stories, or memories about them.
Rhythm and Cello will join other musicians, including Tony O’Hara, Ivory and Wood and The Kwerks, as well as a special appearance by Adrienne Smith, who will join sister Stephanie on stage for an a cappella performance. All music has been selected with the Phoenix theme in mind. Think Bowie, Johnny Cash, the Beatles, MJ, Leonard Cohen, etc., and some movie soundtrack favourites as well!
To complement the music, a strong line-up of slam poets will take the stage to share their magic, in keeping with the theme.
This private event is by invitation only – cover at the door.
Kick back in the Tasting Room at Backyard Vineyards with some award-winning wine, grant-funded music and great friends! Rhythm and Cello is thrilled to be back at this beautiful local winery with some great new tunes (and of course old favourites). Think rock, folk, Latin, reggae, and even a little country! There’s something for everyone – it’ll be up to you to discover the perfect wine pairing! Not a bad responsibility for a Friday night…
This event is free for Backyard Vineyards customers. We look forward to seeing you there!
Testimonial from the Winery
Backyard Vineyards had the pleasure of showcasing Rhythm and Cello – both John and Stephanie had the place alive with their eclectic toe tapping music. Everything from CCR and the Beatles to passionate Latin renditions – the crowd did not want them to leave. A great atmosphere to be had by all! We will definitely be having them back again.
-Felicity, Backyard Vineyards
