Al from Arkavello here, letting you know what is currently going on, musically and otherwise.
We`ve had a slower couple of months then were used to, in terms of playing shows. However, the shows we have played have been quite fun and we seem to be drawing larger crowds every time we play! It also has given us an opportunity to step back and take a good look at what our music means, and what we can do with the business side of things.
In our short time as a full time band looking for a big time break. We have gone from playing community halls and central parks in small Alberta towns, to having a manger and playing fantastic venues such as the Starlite room, and in that short period of time we have been hard at work honing our craft and creating more songs that delve deeper into the world of the unknown.
We have also made into the finals of the Landmark events showcase series, this is huge for us as it presents a great opportunity to play in front of many A&R reps of major labels, and indie labels. The finals are taking place on Saturday May 9th at the Starlite room, just short of one month before we embark on our first tour all around western Canada! We are so grateful to have the chance to do these shows.
So far our Calender is looking like this:
March 28th - Overtime Sports Bar in Calgary
April 25th - The Well in Drayton Valley
May 9th - The Starlite Room in Edmonton
May 29th - Victoria, British Columbia*
May 30th - Vancouver, British Columbia*
May 31st - Kamloops, British Columbia*
June 2nd - Calgary, Alberta*
June 3rd - Edmonton, Alberta*
(*) venue to be announced
We feel like if we keep working hard our future will continue to grow, and our music will spread across the world.
Thanks for reading
