The highly respected Calgary band, Night Committee hung up their wet anoraks Friday night and squeezed under the spotlights shining on the cozy corner stage at the Ship & Anchor to belt out their brand of high tempo anthemic punk, R&B and soul.
The Night Comm used to be, until earlier this year, a three-piece. Nicola Cavanagh Lefevre (bass & backing vocals), joined the band to pump up the action on the bottom line and give Andrew Wedderburn (vocals & guitar) and Lorrie Matheson (keyboards & backing vocals) more room with the melodies. Joel Nye, at the stern, was laying down the rhythm on drums.
The bountiful, swaggering set featured songs such as Loss Leaders and Gills from Heaven, released in 2014, ending the gig with a big high with Is it Sinking In? from their debut album, Crime (2012).
