Celebrating the first show back at the sold-out Commodore Ballroom, Current Swell hit the stage to an ecstatic, buzzing crowd.
Pulling influence from a wide variety of genres, the Victoria BC band has a wonderfully unique sound. From reggae and ska to surf-rock and blues-rock, Current Swell delivers a little something for everyone.
Right from the start, a steady swell built right into fan favourite ‘Woman in White’, where a dreamy, full sound was brightened by vibrant horns. From here the band led the audience on an epic journey that allowed people to cut loose after months of patiently waiting for live music venues to re-open.
Featuring some wicked harmonica work from Dave Lang on ‘Rollin’, and impeccable slide-guitar by Scott Stanton on ‘Cursed’, the crowd had a hard time containing their excitement.
Wrapping up the evening on a high note with their biggest hit ‘Young and Able’ followed by the upbeat ‘Honest Man,’ Current Swell departed the stage with a blissfully happy crowd.
It was a great way to end the night and we can’t wait for Current Swell to join us again on this side of the Georgia Straight.
