THE HELIX ACOUSTIC SHOW THURSDAY, MAY 17TH/2018
In December of 2017 Helix played their second EVER acoustic show in London, Ontario. This was at an un-named private residence known for hosting other acoustic shows ie. Trent 7 (with M Grinder) & Sarah Smith. Believe it or not, there is a “circuit” for acoustic folk acts right across North America that caters to these type of acts. They are in an intimate setting with lots of talking between songs. Artists may talk about the inspiration for the song, the time period the song was written in, or whatever story they might remember concerning the song. Our show was SOLD OUT and a huge success; so much so that the same people associated with that show got us this one at The Blyth Theatre in Blyth, Ontario. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blyth_Festival
This show not only features all the Helix hits acoustically (check out our SMASH HITS UNPLUGGED ALBUM) but also allows us to stretch out and play other Helix material that we maybe wouldn’t normally play ie. Tug o’ War from the album IT’S A BUSINESS DOING PLEASURE. It also allows us to showcase our vocals and interact with the audience between songs via talking and with photos & videos projected onto the theater’s screens.
This is a show we’re going to be developing as we go on and one we’re very excited about. We hope you jump on board for the ride!
