Ambre McLean

Hey there Pearls!

Live at The Pearl on May 2nd is singer/songwriter Ambre McLean (Busted Flat Records). We are very excited to have this lovely artist back again for another amazing show. We have never had a bad show with Ambre, so don't miss out! Here is a bit about who she is.

"Ambre's voice is an insturment itself: gorgeous, sometimes with a rich, bluesy feel, other times a sweet mellow sound, alternitively soft and ferocious, always carrying these tunes straight to your musical heart" David Yazbeck, CKCU FM.Ambre has been gifted with the ability of appearing small on stage, but once she's up there it doesn't take long for her powerful voice and talent for her to appear larger than life. She fills the room with the songs that will make you remember lost loves, abandoned dreams, and new hopes. She has performed on the CBC Music Searchlight Competition, and made it to round three, which surprised noone except that she did not finish by winning!

Tickets will be sold for $15 general and $10 for artists, students, and seniors. The show will be starting at 8:00 pm with the doors opening at 7:30 pm. Get your tickets now so that you don't miss out!

Hey There Pearls!

Anyone been to England lately? If you have than you may have come across this fine group. Live at the Pearl Company is the amazing band Lucid! They are venturing out from the Isle of Wight in England, wight onto our stage (Haha! see what I did there?), in their First tour through Canada! Welcome to Canada, Eh! We can't wait to have them here, and we know you can't wait to see them! Here is just a bit about who they are!

Calling all Brits, this is for you! Lucid is composed of a 6 piece folk/rock/pop band from the Isle of Wight, England. It is made up of 2 beautiful ladies and 4 lovely gents. With a mix of Piano, Guitars, Violin, Bass and Drums, and 5 amazing singers, who produce breathtaking harmonies, you know this will be a good one! Having spent the past 7 years building up a lengthy repertoire of original material (with some covers, of course!) and creating a high quality performance with a tight/well honed live sound. With endless performances they have built up a great fan base in the UK and in some other parts of Europe. With this tour ( and hopefully more to come) they are hoping to broaden their horizons further with their wondrous appeal.

This band has the passion and the experience. Now they just need some Canadian loving. The show should be at the regular time of starting at 8:00 and the doors opening at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $20 for general admission and $15 for students, artists, and seniors. You don't want to miss out on this show! Buy your tickets online or email us and reserve a ticket now!
