Whoop It Up...With UMFM
August 22, 2023: Episode 9: Mark Reeves
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!
