Local band Reverie hits the stage next week with special guests Michael Wood Band. The folk indie band performs Saturday, July 27 at St. Andrews Anglican Church on Fourth Street in Sidney. This will be their second time playing at the church after the release of their album which was recorded in the church.

“This is our second show at St. Andrews and because we just recently released our first EP we’re really looking forward to seeing people of all ages come out and enjoy the music,” said band member Nicola Hestnes.

Hestnes is joined by Holly Hurwood, Stephanie Benbow and guest member Grant Parkins who will be accompanying the group on bass for the show.

“All the girls originally met through school when we were all in the Parkland concert band together and realized we had the same taste in music,” explained Hestnes.

“Recently we expanded with a new member, Grant Parkins, who plays bass and that has been awesome.”

The girls have been playing around the community for about two years and have even sung backup with the Michael Wood Band with the likes of Prism, Faber Drive and Platinum Blonde during shows at the Charlie White theatre at the Mary Winspear Centre.

The Michael Wood Band is a local four-piece indie rock band who have shared venues in the past with Reverie.

“We’re really looking forward to playing with them again,” said Hestnes.

Tickets for the concert are $10 and are available for purchase at the St. Andrews Anglican Church office (9691 Fourth St. in Sidney) from Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Tickets are also available through the band by contacting reveriebandnhs@gmail.com and limited tickets will be available at the door prior to the show at 6:30 p.m.
