Jonathan Roy is a Canadian singer songwriter. He has just recently released a great album titled Mr. Optimist Blues. The single off it is called “Good Things”. I was extremely impressed by Jonathan and his Band. They were extremely soulful, and put on a great show. The blended a lot of Reggae, Rhythm and Blues, and a bit of pop music. His backup band was fantastic. Every musician was very tight and looked like they were having a great time. Keep your eyes open for this guy. Jonathan Roy certainly knows how to put on a good show.
Alessia Cara was on next. Before this Canadian singer and songwriter could even get on stage. The crowd was cheering and couldn’t wait. But we would have to wait just a little longer. We found out it was Alessia’s birthday a couple days ago. Everybody sang happy birthday for her before she got on stage. Alessia came up on stage, and the crowd erupted. This set started off on a high note. And stayed that way for the whole time.
The crowd sang and danced to the whole show. Not to mention the sound was mixed perfectly. Alessia has a very soulful voice, and was very humble throughout the night. Thanking the fans who came out to listen, and thanking her band, who were fantastic. I was really impressed by this show. The energy was at a high throughout the whole night. And the musicianship was amazing. She is an extremely talented singer songwriter, and if you get the chance; definitely check her out. I know I will be in the future.
Happy birthday Alessia! And Thanks for coming to Calgary.
