Oh Village is about to embark on their first cross Canada tour and are making their Regina stop at the Creative City Centre on August 17th. Doors will open at 8:00pm and music will start at 8:30. Regina’s own Danny Goertz will be opening the show!
Created in the summer of 2009 under the name Ivory Coast, Oh Village began playing local shows around the Fraser Valley solely for the love of music. As they played more they gained both experience and momentum, and their fan base grew. In April 2011, they gained publicity and a professional music experience by finishing second in Youthink Magazine’s Best Teen Band Competition, beating out over fifty entrants from across the province. Oh Village’s rising recognition drew the attention of a local studio, and the band subsequently released Headlights / Red Death in February 2012.
They mix piano, drums, bass, guitar, and vocal harmonies with non-conventional instruments such as the cello and trumpet, and have been lauded as having a “unique sound, a blend of folk, rock, and alternative.” The four friends have brought together their love for writing original music and their individual musical influences to create a down-to-earth sound that is both uniquely honest and completely inspired.
