Vidos host CD release party at Fernridge Hall on Friday
It’s the date everyone has been talking about.
But for The Vidos, Dec. 21, 2012 is not so much about the Mayans’ dire predictions of the end of the world as it is about launching themselves onto the world.
This Friday the Langley band will hold a CD release party to introduce their disc, appropriately titled 2012, to music fans of all ages.
For those who don’t yet know, The Vidos are: Kirk Mustaff, 15, who plays lead guitar, Brett Hornall, 17, the band’s bassist and lead vocalist, and 16-year-old Nolan Nielsen, who backs them up on drums.
Opening for the band will be another independent artist, folk singer Michael Reddick.
“They chose him because he’s another local musician making waves,” said Deanna Hilts-Knudsen, who acts as photographer and unofficial promoter for the band.
Although they are all still under age, The Vidos have been competing and holding their own in a local rock radio station’s Battle of the Bands against older and more experienced competition, she noted.
“These are the most incredibly talented young men, busting out of the Fraser Valley.
“Individually, they are gifted musicians,” said Hilts-Knudsen, “but what they’ve done together is beyond anything.”
The all ages party at Fernridge Hall, 2389 200 St., starts at 6 p.m. Admission is $2, CDs are $10 each.
