The Centre Rocks program provides young local artists with the opportunity to perform a paid gig in a professional venue.

Local talent takes centre stage at The Centre Rocks X

The Centre Rocks will once again showcase Chilliwack’s best and newest musical acts in an intimate and cabaret-style setting

There is no shortage of talent in Chilliwack, and on November 18 you can experience it for yourself at The Centre Rocks X. Join local musicians as they showcase both their original work and a few well known hits at The Chilliwack Cultural Centre’s Rotary Hall Studio Theatre, this time with six of the best local up-and-coming performers.

The Centre Rocks is an initiative created to help local emerging musicians gain exposure with a venue to perform at in their own community. Chilliwack musician Sarah Keats has participated in The Centre Rocks in the past, and this time she has taken on the task of curating the performers. Keats has selected five of Chilliwack’s talented acts and she’ll be performing again as well.

Brook Potter, Christa Keats and Joshua Keats will be three of the performers celebrating the tenth installment in this incredible series. Potter’s warm raspy voice is perfectly accompanied by his acoustic guitar skills, Christa will bring her soothing singing voice and stunning stage presence, and Joshua’s guitar skills are nothing short of fantastic and are bound to inspire.

Contemporary folk rock duo, Cole Prpich and Joseph Richter, will take to the stage as The Great Atlas. Richter’s spirited violin lines are perfectly complimented by not only Prpich’s incredible guitar skills, but also by his raw and honest vocals.

Also hitting the stage will be Tigers In Oceans, a band founded by singer and songwriter Ransford Laryea. This musical project based on a variety of musical styles woven into wonderful songwriting should not to be missed.

Perfect for a casual night of great local talent, The Centre Rocks will once again showcase Chilliwack’s best and newest musical acts in an intimate and cabaret-style setting.

The Centre Rocks X is coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Nov. 18 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the Centre Box Office, online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca, or by calling 604-391-SHOW(7469).
