Shoom Live in Winnipeg

This post comes a tad late, but none the less. . . . Winnipeg's own Shoom was at the West End Cultural Centre on Thursday of last week recording their fourth album . . . entitled (are you ready for this?) "Live in Winnipeg" *loud roar of audience applause* I had the pleasure of being in attendance with my co-host Slava and we were able to record most of the snippets of them talking in between songs. We didn't record any songs as well, that was the whole point of being there, and we didn't want to reveal anything that we shouldn't have. Anyhow, we were going to interview them, but they basically did their own interview in a roundabout way just by what they said in between songs. Needless to say Slava and I put it all together in a very nice sounding half hour bit for our show, which air yesterday (Monday) evening on CKJS.

And now for those of you wondering . . . the CD is set to be out early August, maybe for Dauphin Festival, and if not, for Folklorama for sure, so if you're going to be in Winnipeg in August, the 5-18 is when you'll want to be around so you can get your hands on a copy of that cd.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Cheers!

Tell them to save a copy for me! I'm one of Shoom's biggest fans (and so is Fr. Bruce).

Would have loved to catch your feature. I saw Shoom one year in Dauphin when they were the house band, and they are very entertaining behind the mic whether they are singing and playing, or just talking. So the lucky listeners who caught your segment no doubt thoroughly enjoyed it.

See you at Folklorama!
