March 22 - CSA Noon Hour Concert: The Small Glories

Co-presented by the Central Student Association & CFRU 93.3 FM 

UC Courtyard at 12pm

"I actually heard someone in the audience gasp! ... The Small Glories had us all totally enthralled." – Whitstable Sessions Music Club, UK

Folk powerhouse pair The Small Glories are Cara Luft & JD Edwards, a dynamic duo planted on the Canadian Prairies. They are a study in contrasts; Cara, all earth mother on her 21-speed bike, environmentally friendly and wholesome, ebullient and engaging; and burly JD, in scruffy beard, ball cap, t-shirt and jean jacket, slightly intimidating (until you meet him). At first glance few would peg them for a highly creative musical partnership. Yet these two veteran singer/songwriters have teamed up and are building a buzz around their tight harmonies, authenticity and visceral performances.

Luft is a Juno Award winner and co-founder of the folk trio The Wailin' Jennys. She has earned her rep as a gutsy live performer and insightfully honest songwriter, with serious skills on the guitar and clawhammer banjo. Edwards is a riveting live performer and prolific songwriter, a soulful singer blessed with one of the most versatile and powerful voices in Canada. Both are musical road warriors who have racked up many miles on both sides of the Atlantic.

April 5 - CSA Noon Hour Concert: Richard Laviolette

A Kazoo! Fest Preview
Co-presented by the Central Student Association & CFRU 93.3 FM 

UC Courtyard at 12pm

"Laviolette has been making some of the most affecting, outspoken, and catchy folk and rock music to emerge in this century." – Vish Khanna, Kreative Kontrol

There is no doubt that Laviolette is a Guelph hero. An old soul, whose songwriting comes from an intimate place, Laviolette’s ballads never fail to connect with his listeners on a deep, personal level. A voice for the marginalized, Laviolette’s social consciousness permeates all of his songwriting, urging us to be better, more compassionate people. Nobody can create a sense of community amongst their audience the way that Laviolette can. His new album 'Taking the Long Way Home' has just been released.

April 6 - TUSH Live Disco Band

Presented by Student Life

UC Courtyard

Remember the band that had you Shakin' it at the Oweek Block Party in September and in the UC in February?...they are back. 

TUSH! is the live Disco Experience. The Big Smoke Disco Sound! We play a mixed bag that embraces the all-encompassing diversity that Disco music and its culture typify. We are equal parts funk, jazz, afro, soul, boogie, rare groove, reggae, gospel and proto-house, with the sole aim of making the people groove. We escape the glitter-soaked trappings of the hit parade by playing the music that we really enjoy, casting light on some neglected and rejected classics!

This is a happening that is not to be missed.

April 7 - Jessy Lanza, Han Han and Softside

Co-presented by Kazoo! + Central Student Association + Wavelength

Mitchell Hall | 99 Woolwich Street
Licensed/All Ages | 8:30 pm doors | 9:15 pm start
Tickets $15 + SC in advance / $20 at door

Jessy Lanza released one of the catchiest, lushest, most beautiful albums of 2016, and we can’t wait for the Steel City singer/producer to return to Guelph. Mixing footwork with Detroit House, ‘90s dance and R&B, Lanza is joined by her co-producer Jeremy Greenspan (Junior Boys), to perfectly match powerful vocals with an inventive mash-up of contemporary and throwback electronic production. The world agrees that it doesn’t get any better than Jessy Lanza.

Han Han makes music like you’ve never heard before. Rapping in her native Tagalog and Cebuano languages and accompanied by HATAW dancers that will blow your mind, Han Han mixes contemporary rap production with elements of traditional Filipino music.
