Shining the spotlight on local musicians, Boomerang Six will electrify the Chilliwack Cultural Centre stage with Floe Pham and other artists on Dec. 18.
Pham will head a hand-selected lineup of musicians that will not only span a wide collection of familiar genres, but also bring new ones to the Cultural Centre.
“Boomerang Six is being programmed by Floe Pham, a local musician whose new band Go With the Floe will be debuting with their first live performance at this event,” said Amber Bergeron, program lead. “They perform covers of pop, rock, and inspirational rap music. Joining them will be ShootingStar Idols, an indie song and dance group focused on celebrating and popularizing Asian-Idol culture in Canada. There will also be some up-and-coming young local performers that are just beginning their performance journey, and are excited to be on stage for Boomerang Six.”
The Boomerang Concert series aims to give musicians in the community a chance to create something, and get real hands-on experience performing in a casual, but professional setting, she added.
“We give them the tools, resources, and mentorship they need for a good show, and they take their skills and knowledge to put together a memorable performance,” Bergeron said. “The idea behind the naming of the series ‘Boomerang’ is a metaphor for all the hard work and creativity that is put into these shows. The effort that goes into what you will see on stage will repay these young musicians with more tools, experience, and knowledge to continue pursuing their art form in the future. And not only are all of the performers classified as ‘young’ musicians, but most of the staff working on these shows, from the marketing team to the lighting and sound technicians, are also young members of the community, honing their craft and gaining experience in the industry.”
These local talents will each tell their own stories through their range of alternative, pop and acoustic music.
