HUMBOLDT — Live Voltage, an AC/DC tribute band out of Vancouver, will be performing in Humboldt for one night in early August.
The band is on its Saskatchewan tour, said Kevin Brooke, a director of Arts Humboldt, with its first stop in Humboldt on Friday, Aug. 2 at the Legion Hall in the Humboldt Royal Canadian Legion Branch 28.
The classic rock tribute band’s sound is “not something that happens very often in Humboldt,” Brooke said, “so take advantage when it happens.”
The band’s five members originate from Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia and Manitoba. Their ages vary just as much, with the youngest member being 19 and the oldest 54.
“What makes Live Voltage so unique is that, given the age differences, they operate more like a family than just a band,” according to the Arts Humboldt website. “You can hear it in the tightness and maturity in the music. One of the biggest reasons the band operates so smoothly is due to their motto: No ego!”
Arts Humboldt is a non-profit organization focused on promoting arts and culture within the city. The group’s ultimate goal is to bring a theatre to Humboldt. The city hasn’t had a theatre since the Sutherland Theatre was demolished in 2012.
Tickets are available at Shoppers Drug Mart or can be purchased online at www.eventbrite.ca. The event is open to people 19 or older and proof of age is required. Doors open at 7:30 pm and the concert starts at 9 pm. More information is available on the Arts Humboldt website at www.artshumboldt.com.
