I’m very excited to see the ever-evolving Wilderness of Manitoba this evening at Peppers. 2014’s Between Colours, features the strong vocals of lead Whitwham and guitarist/violinist Amanda Balsysover the deep dark rhythms of bassist Wes McClintock. The band experiemented with broader, fuller instrumentation on this record, bringing in drummers Tom Bona, Marito Marques and Howie Beck along with Michael Phillip Wojewoda on theremin (!), and Alex Lifeson with a signature guitar solo.
