Rainbow Room adds ‘all ages’ option for shows

After eight years of offering entertainment to the 19-plus crowd, the Rainbow Room has been approved to offer all-ages shows.

After eight years of offering entertainment to the 19-plus crowd, the Rainbow Room has been approved to offer all-ages shows under a special licence.

The first all ages concert will take place this Saturday, Oct. 18 with Nick Gee and Joey Clarkson in the house.

The special licence allows minors to sit in until 10 p.m., explains Rainbow Room owner Dave Rutherford.

No more hall rentals, or school gymnasiums equipped with patched together sound and lighting systems; this recent development will offer a safe location for people of all ages to enjoy live music without sacrificing the quality of sound or presentation, according to a press release.

Born and raised in Ladner, B.C., indie  pop/rock  artist Nick Gee grew up in a musical family. In late 2009, after a summer of beaches and bonfires, Gee recorded his first EP What You Want is Want You Need, followed last March with Hope.

A semi-finalist in CBC’s searchlight competition, Gee is on an acoustic mini tour of Vancouver Island  and will be sharing the stage with Comox Valley’s Joey Clarkson.

Described as Katy Perry and Blondie meet Cheap Trick, Clarkson’s crystal clear vocals and  evocative lyrics create an innovative contemporary sound that resonates with audiences young and old alike.

Catch these two performers at the Rainbow Room on Saturday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10/adults and $5/youth at the door.
