The Deep End is fronted by Dawn Pemberton

Vancouver’s The Deep End brings the funk

Music group formed out of common love for soul and funk

Brush off those fall leaves and shake your ‘thang’ with retro funk and soul band, The Deep End, presented by the Harrison Festival Society, Nov. 9 at 8 p.m. in Harrison Memorial Hall.

The Deep End specializes in all of the funk, soul, Motown and R&B standards that you know and love. The band’s irresistible recipe has quickly established their reputation for getting people out of their seats and on to the dance floor. Formed out of a common love of soul and funk music by a group of seven musician friends in 2002, this energetic and infectious group has stirred up a large following all over Vancouver, the Lower Mainland, Whistler and the B.C. Interior.

The Deep End is fronted by vocalist Dawn Pemberton, who Harrison Festival audiences will remember as the boomer soulful voice in the all-female, a cappella group The Shirleys. A versatile and powerful singer, Pemberton has a voice that can shake the ground and soothe the saddest of hearts. The rest of the band consists of pianist/vocalist Shannon Thue; guitarist/composer Jeff Younger who the media describes as “the mad scientist of the electric guitar”; bass man extraordinaire David Marion; drummer Mike Zobac; trumpeter Kristian Naso and sax player Dan Pigott.

Together their musical joy is undeniable and guaranteed to get your toe tapping if not your whole body hopping.

Tickets are $22 and can be purchased by phone at 604-796-3664, online at www.harrisonfestival.com or in person at the Ranger Station Art Gallery in Harrison, or Agassiz Shoppers Drug Mart.
