Spiller back for show in Alberni

Albernis Rainbow Room will be hopping on Saturday, March 31 when Emily Spiller hot the stage.

The Rainbow Room on Fourth Avenue in Port Alberni will be hopping on Saturday, March 31 when Emily Spiller graces the performance area.

A hint of Imogen Heap-meets-Zap Mama with a splash of Feist, Spiller blends jazz and blues with layered harmonies over vocal percussion as a one-woman show.

Nominated for five Vancouver Island Music awards in 2011, Spiller won “Female Vocalist of the Year” shortly after returning from an Australian tour and a showcase at Canadian Music Fest in Toronto.

Spiller travels the globe as a duo with Vancouver’s Doc Prophet.

Armed with loop machines, laptops and microphones, they create live layers on stage like you’ve never heard before.

Doc Prophet is a producer, beat maker, beat boxer and multi-instrumentalist.

He says he’s “a man with a soul for all things music.”

Starting at age 10 with a guitar led to anything Prophet could get his hands on, from drums and bass to looping software and his big love: producing.

Crossing all genres, busting you out of your seat and onto the dance floor is what Prophet does best.

The Rainbow room show also features DJ Lalu, known throughout Vancouver and the Gulf Islands for his infectious global fusion sets.

A musician and producer, Lalu takes you places you never thought you’d go.

Spinning house, funk, reggae and electronic beats from around the world, there’s nothing you can do but move your body when he’s on deck.

Tickets for this triple threat are $10 at the door. Doors open at 8 a.m.
