Whoop It Up...With UMFM

On episode 9, Broose is joined by Win­nipeg musi­cal main­stay Mark Reeves!

Pow­er­house soul, blues and R&B rolled into one. A breath of fresh air, Winnipeg’s Mark Reeves is a clas­sic exam­ple of one of those rare, blaz­ing­ly tal­ent­ed inde­pen­dent artists who leaves unsus­pect­ing audi­ences slack-jawed and eager for more. Like some kind of caf­feinat­ed sin­gle malt whiskey, Reeves’ bluesy roots rock goes down smooth and easy, but packs a pow­er­ful kick that can’t help but move you. Any­body who loves R&B will imme­di­ate­ly be inspired by Mark’s infec­tious, dance-all-night groove thang — but there are pro­found­ly beau­ti­ful moments, clever lyri­cal humour, and an unpre­ten­tious musi­cal wis­dom that makes you sit back while you catch your breath.

Don’t miss Mark Reeves as part of this year’s Whoop & Hol­lar Folk Fes­ti­val in beau­ti­ful Portage La Prairie on Sat­ur­day, August 26th as he per­forms twice on the main­stage — at 4:45 and 6:45PM!
