Caldera ready to rock Revy

A super-volcano is about to erupt over Revelstoke when new band Caldera makes it debut this Friday at Revy Rocks night at the United Church.

Caldera consists of singer Rhys Evans, lead guitarist Kade Hansen, rhythm guitarist Everitt

Hawthorn, bassist Drinnon Sternloff and drummer Matthew Masson.

The band was born out of the ashes of Fuse – Evans, Hansen and Hawthorn were all members of that band and they’re joined by the rhythm section of Sternloff and Masson.

The five teenagers have been playing together for the past three months and their instructor Morgan Toutant said they had an instant chemistry – rattling off songs one after another right off the bat.

“There’s chemistry there you can’t put a price on – that’s really powerful,” he said before their practice last Sunday.

The band will play some songs that were in Fuse’s repertoire but has added five new ones, including tunes by Billy Talent, Muse and The Clash.

The band said its looking at writing some originals but first it wants to develop a full show.

The quintet will make its debut this Friday, May 13 at Revy Rocks, an open mic night at the United Church.

Other performers include Hailey Christie-Hoyle, Kenzie Hollenberg, Luke Badger, Bon St. John, Dorothy Kingcott, John Austin, Everitt Hawthorne and Keeley Jasper.
