Morinville – Saturday night’s Canyon Rose Outfit / Señorita Justice show proved two things – Morinville will come out and support local bands in a concert venue and those local bands are worth coming out to support. About 200 people came out to the show, the first concert in the Community Cultural Centre (CCC).

The show opened with Señorita Justice, a five-piece band from Sturgeon County who formed in 2007 for a battle-of-the-bands competition, a challenge the group won. Señorita Justice has since played the JET Nightclub, The Nest, the Taphouse, the Hydeaway, and BOONSTOCK. Inside My Mind, a song the band wrote and played Saturday night, received airplay on NAIT’s internet radio program

Headlining the CCC’s inaugural concert was The Canyon Rose Outfit, a band that blends the best parts of several musical genres both old and new into something that is incredibly unique and completely infectious. Whether covering Lou Reed’s Walk on the Wild Side or belting out their own Face in a Shattered Mirror, the Outfit fit well with the wide spectrum of generations present at the show.

Saturday night’s show was recorded for a live album by Smith Music. A videographer was also present to record the concert for a DVD.
