Redgy Blackout is coming to Rossland February 14th. Redgy Blackout’s diversity defines their sound which ranges from funk and swing to reggae and rock. Presented by Teck Trail Operations, they will be playing in the intimate setting of the Rossland Miners’ Hall.

Redgy Blackout’s debut album “The Leap” features banjo and guitar from Jeremy Breaks along with Scott Perrie on trumpet and vocals.  With Colin Medhurst on bass and Pat Poirier on drums, it all fuses together into a fresh retro sound. They took ‘The Leap’ to college radio this summer and had spins on over 150 stations across North America. They charted in Louisiana, in New York City on the renowned M3 radio and in Colorado, where they had a number 1 with their song “Nothing at All”.

Redgy shared the stage with Randy Bachman, Sean Verraught and Jim Byrnes when they won the opportunity to play at GM Place for the opening ceremony of the World Police and Fire Games. At the Vancouver International Jazz Festival they played to a full house and during the past two years they have appeared at many of Vancouver’s top venues including The Railway Club, The Biltmore and The Media Club. In 2008 they opened for Hedley at the CN Center in Prince George.

‘The Leap’, is about looking life square in the eye and living a more aware life on planet Earth, a world in which we are all living.  So jump, dance, swing and rock with Redgy Blackout and take the leap into the unknown. Tickets are only $18 in advance and $20 at the door, available at the Rouge Gallery in Rossland (2123 Columbia Ave) and at the Charles Bailey Theatre Box office in Trail (1-866-368-9669).
