Kelowna Arts Council is proud to partner with The Marmalade Cat Cafe to bring you OUR Coffeehouse!
Doors open at 6:15. Open Mic from 6:45 pm til 8:00 pm, followed by Aaron Gordon in the Feature Spot!
Okanagan based pop/folk-rock singer/songwriter Aaron Gordon has honed his craft to forge a unique blend of adult contemporary music that runs the musical gamut from poignant and heartfelt ballads to hilarious, energetic and uplifting tunes. Raised on classic and modern rock with a splash of country and blues, Aaron gravitated towards playing drums, learning guitar and writing his first songs at age 12. His musical tastes branched out in his teen years to include more edgy stuff like Dubstep and Metal, but his true creative outlet would prove to be much softer and more intimate.
Aaron has played in a couple of regional bands but says he’s played tons of open mic nights and solo acoustic performances which is where he hit on his signature sound. Today he performs both cover and original material with a loop station across BC playing such events such as Pop Okanagan, The Interior Provincial Exhibition, and countless fundraisers. In 2011 Aaron released his first EP entitled “Moving On” produced by Ange Alero and is working on the music for the 3rd EP with the 2nd ready to record.
Whether he’s singing love-lorn angsty songs or regaling a crowd with a humorous upbeat tune, long-time fans of Aaron’s and new fans are in for a sensory treat as they join him on the next leg of his musical journey.
$10.00 at the door. Only $5:00 for Kelowna Arts Council Members!
