Wild T and the Spirit kick off Orchard House series

Penticton’s Orchard House hosting a series of intimate concerts

Wild T and the Spirit will kick off a new performance series in the intimate setting of Orchard House.

Located in downtown Penticton, Orchard House (157 Orchard Ave.) announced the Up Close and Personal performance series, a new entertainment venture that features musical acts in an intimate setting with a dance floor.

Wild T and the Spirit are a power trio from Toronto that mixes blues, rock, funk and reggae. The band has entertained audiences throughout Canada, the U.S. and Europe for over 25 years. They have released seven albums over this time and shared the stage with such great acts as Bon Jovi, Deep Purple, Grand Funk Railroad, Joe Bonamassa and Pat Traverse to name just a few.

Orchard House was converted from the Masonic Temple into a performance art center that is home to local dance schools as well as The Yard Katz, a local classic rock/blues band, who host a monthly blues jam at the venue.

The first Up Close and Personal show is scheduled for Friday, May 18. Tickets are $40 (plus applicable fees) and are available at The Grooveyard in Penticton, at 239 Main St. Special guests, the Yard Katz, will start the evening off. Doors open at 7 p.m. with music starting at 7:30 p.m. For further information visit www.orchardhousetheatre.com.
