Retro Rhythm Review

Thursday, June 14  @ 9:30pm
Old Market Square

After a five-year hiatus and diaspora into the far corners of the global music scene, this all-star Winnipeg cast reunites and gets the formative “family” band back together.  Band leader/traffic-director/bass-player Jonny Moonbeam (aka Daniel Jordan of Red Moon Road) and soul-singing-sisters “The Satellites” — Heitha “Sol Satellite” Forsyth (Sol James), Rayannah “Rocket Satellite” Kroeker (Rayannah) and Jacqueline “Jax Satellite” Harding (Rainbow Stage) — belt it out with the backing of beat-machine Michael “Mungo Moon” Jordan (Royal Canoe, The Liptonians) on drums, organ-donor Alex Campbell (Sweet Alibi, JD Edwards Band) on Keys, Guit-Ariel Posen (The Bros. Landreth, The New Lightweights), and the tightest horn section this side of the Tower of Power: trumpet-monk-of-funk Simon Christie (Dirty Catfish Brass Band), saxophonist Niall Bakkestad-Legere, and trombonist Jared Castles. The Retro Rhythm Review reunites with the music of the ‘60s and ‘70s played by kids from the ‘80s. They dare you not to dance.
