Local indie bands, including members of Mother Mother, No Sinner and Hey Ocean are taking to the Biltmore stage for one night only in tribute of your favourite Disney classics.
Anyone remember those Disney Sing-Along songs on VHS? If you can quote all of the lyrics (spoken and sung) to Hakuna Matata, then next week’s shindig at the Biltmore Cabaret is for you. The Wonderful World of Disney – A Tribute Show is all about paying homage to those wonderful Disney songs of our childhood.
The Facebook event is filling with audience-sourced suggestions like I’ll Make a Man Out of You (Mulan) and A Whole New World (Aladdin), but there’s still some time to submit your pick. But please, just don’t request Let it Go. I may go crazy if I hear that song one. more. time.
Here’s the complete lineup of talent that will be participating on the night:
- Colleen Rennison (No Sinner)
- Ryan Guldemond (Mother Mother)
- DUSTIN BENTALL & Kendel Carson
- Jessicka & The Gentle Party
- Debra-Jean Creelman
- David Beckingham (Hey Ocean)
- Shuyler Jansen
- Mani Khaira
Tickets start at $8 and are a bargain for seeing so many bands on stage. But really, we’re all there just to relive our Disney-spangled childhoods. As for me, there’s one song that I’m especially looking forward to in full duet form:
