Groove Theory Calgary is an open-ended, free form, perfectly imperfect, “do what u feel” jam session that welcomes groovy bands, singers, emcees, spoken word artists and musicians to create and collaborate, on the spot and right on the legendary King Eddy stage.
Check out who’s grooving with us this week:
Souls in Rhythm
From Calgary, Alberta, Canada – funk/soul group SiR has toured much of the nation, and opened for prominent artists such as American hip-hop icon Common, and R&B super-group Boyz II Men. Exiling themselves to a two-year hiatus from performing, Souls in Rhythm has remained dedicated to creating together. The last two years have brought countless writing sessions… And in early 2018 they were honoured to accept a songwriting residency at the Banff Centre, where (over the course of three weeks) they came up with another mountain of new finished songs. Armed with a new wealth of material, they are extremely excited about their next chapter!
Rather than being impressionists of master/classic artists of the genre, SiR has a modern sound and seeks to innovate and contemporize a musical form they love. Canadian Musician Magazine elaborates; “smooth, soulful grooves, melody lines that stay in your head and polished vocals”, SiR’s music proudly pays homage to tradition, while at the same time expanding boundaries.
Producer, songwriter, composer, and guitarist, Jamil Ahmed does it all. In addition to curating the local sounds of Groove Theory Calgary, Jamil DJs groovy sounds every Thursday at the King Eddy.
Sound production equipment for the King Eddy provided by PK Sound and Yamaha.
