On-stage per­for­mance se­ries con­tin­ues with McMaster

Medicine Hat News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Luke McMaster con­tin­ues the Medicine Hat Brew­ing Com­pany ON-Stage Se­ries next week at the Es­planade.

McMaster’s lat­est solo project, “Icons of Soul,” sees the singer-song­writer up his game when it comes to the Mo­town and soul sounds that have al­ways been a part of his mu­sic. The new mu­sic is said to flow with a fun vibe that makes them feel in­stantly rec­og­niz­able.

The show will be held Nov. 15, start­ing at 7:30 p.m.

McMaster, a Man­i­to­ban, col­lab­o­rates with iconic Mo­town song­writ­ers like Fe­lix Cava­liere of the Ras­cals and La­mont Dozier. He’s pre­vi­ously worked with Ri­hanna and shared the stage with Cana­dian leg­end Randy Bach­man and pop su­per­stars Justin Tim­ber­lake and Christina Aguil­era.

This is the sec­ond of five ON-Stage Se­ries shows on the Es­planade cal­en­dar. The pub­lic sits on the stage with the per­former, cre­at­ing a more in­ti­mate vibe than a reg­u­lar show. Ear­lier this year, Tram­pas Brown de­scribed it this way:

“We bring peo­ple in through the back­stage hall­ways. They come through the no-ac­cess signs, and we set the bar up on the load­ing dock. The per­former stands where they would nor­mally stand but in­stead of fac­ing the seats they’re fac­ing the back­stage area.” Ta­bles and chairs fill the rest of the stage to cre­ate an in­ti­mate ex­pe­ri­ence for ev­ery­one. Brown, the Es­planade’s su­per­in­ten­dent of op­er­a­tions and pro­gram­ming, likened it to a club or cabaret set­ting.

Up next is Don Amero on Dec. 6, fol­lowed by Hills­burn (Jan. 24) and Earle & Cof­fin (Feb. 27).

Tick­ets, are avail­able at tixx.ca, by call­ing 403-502-8777 or in per­son at the Es­planade box of­fice or the Medicine Hat Mall cus­tomer ser­vice desk. A bun­dle pack for the four re­main­ing ON-Stage shows is also avail­able.
