From http://www.facebook.com/johnwelshmusic/: With a sound that blends high energy Latin, West African, reggae and folk rock rhythms the John Welsh Band gets crowds moving wherever they perform. Performing in both English and Spanish the John Welsh Band wins over audiences with a high energy show that emphasizes crowd participation, upbeat rhythms and singalong choruses.

Rhythm and Cello will be opening for headliners The Kwerks on April 7th at The Railyard in Mission, BC, to kick off our spring schedule! We are really looking forward to taking the stage, after a few months of private and corporate events. As a result, we miss our loyal fans and friends!
Rhythm and Cello is a Vancouver duo that blends high energy rhythm of the acoustic guitar with the versatility of the seductive cello.
Stephanie Glegg‘s cello melodies, harmonies, bass lines, fills and solos complement John Welsh‘s original songs beautifully, and bring a range of crowd-favourite cover tunes to life, while leaving space for the duo’s rich vocal harmonies.
Come ready to expect reggae (yes, reggae), Latin, folk and rock music, and maybe even a little Celtic or country. Our goal is to move you from your chair to the dance floor by the end of the set. Come on out and let us change the way you think about the cello!
Laura Koch captivates with her standout voice and lays the groundwork on guitar. Ryan Koch harmonizes beautifully, while moving to the music in ways vaguely reminiscent of Elaine Benes (Seinfeld). The full band is rounded out by Gregg Porter (mandolin/banjo), Jay Rennicks (electric guitar), Jonathan Perkins (bass) and Tim Dyck (drums, percussion).
Entertaining stories, eclectic dance moves, and enchanting tunes will make you groove, laugh and maybe even shed a few tears. But you’ll leave with a bounce in your step and a smile on your face, already waiting for their next show.

On January 26th, Rhythm and Cello will be performing during the conference reception of the Early Years Conference 2018. Latin, folk, rock, reggae and country tunes will be among the musical styles attendees will enjoy. The background entertainment will give them a chance to unwind as they recap the day’s learning while meeting new people in their field.
About the Event
The conference focuses on early child development. The event brings together health care providers and leaders, policy makers, families, educators, school officials and more. This year’s theme is Strengthening Resilience in Today’s World – Leading with Kindness and Understanding. The conference runs from January 25th through 27th.
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.
Rhythm and Cello is excited to perform at Acoustic Emporium in the Fraser Valley later this month! We’ll be playing a full complement of original tunes to get you moving – so get ready for some folk, Latin and reggae on acoustic guitar & cello to make your Friday night a little brighter.

About the Rio Samaya Band (from panchoandsal.com):
Based in Vancouver, the Rio Samaya Band is made up of Pancho and Sal, partners in life as well as in music, which is full of wonderfully enchanting latin rhythms and romantic melodies in Spanish including some Italian, English and French folk songs. With a style that flows through the folkloric traditions of Central and South America, Rio Samaya music beats to the natural pulse of our planet, writing and blending it with elements of folk, country, and reggae, as well as the rhythms from Gypsies in the south of France.
Sal grew up playing accordion in Vancouver but has roots in Argentina, sings ethereal harmonies and plays hand percussion instruments. They have a unique style of translating simultaneously from Spanish to English. Guitar, bombo, chachas, accordion, quena, flute, harmonica, piano, charango and ukulele are just some of the instruments they play. Together they create a gentle and compelling sound.
Prepare for a fantastic dinner – the buffet will be provided by Di Reggae Cafe and Chef Daniel Restaurant. Have a peek at their respective menus to get an idea about what you’re in for, but don’t blame us if your mouth starts to water!

Join actor Eric McCormack (Will & Grace) for a night of music and storytelling at the Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage at his show, called ‘The Concert I Never Gave…(except for, like 2000 times in my bedroom)’. It features music from the 70s and 80s, along with McCormack’s entertaining stories about growing up, and about life as a celebrity. Because this event sold out in both L.A. and Toronto, it is being offered in Vancouver for 2 nights: August 5th & 6th.
The charity show is in memory of Eric’s parents. Accordingly, all proceeds support cancer research. Did you know that 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime? That makes it the most common cancer affecting men in Canada. So let’s help Prostate Cancer Canada contribute to advancements in research to improve prevention, diagnosis and treatment!
