Somethin’ Crazy going on this weekend

Tsawwassen’s Dave Karmazyn is about to release his first solo CD of original music.

Somethin’ Crazy, a compilation of 15 songs of various genres that he has been working on for more than two years, will be released at the Wander Inn Café on Saturday, March 2 at Lighthouse Church in Ladner.

What makes the album so special is that Karmazyn called on family, friends and neighbours to help create it. It’s a real labour of friendship and love.

The collaboration is grassroots, including everything from adding beautiful oboe melody lines and foot stomping banjo, harmonica and fiddle to special effects featuring a mournful husky howl, song birds, loons and even a haunting digeridoo. The community support extended right down to the design of the CD cover and the building of his website.

In addition to making music, Karmazyn is fundraising with Freshwave Ministries to help bring nutritious food to people that are homeless or struggling to make ends meet.

Entrance to the CD launch show is a suggested $10 donation.

Many of the contributing musicians will be adding their talents at the CD release concert. Also joining him on stage will be the members of The Karmichaels (Mike Hurworth, Russil Alden, Gavin Strang, Rich Mayer and Maribel Karmazyn). Special guests will include Karmazyn’s longtime friend and piano recording artist Bryant Jones from Manitou Springs, Colo., and Juno-nominated Loren Bagelman and his wife Marion Lightly.

The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and includes two sets plus intermission. Copies of the Somethin’ Crazy CD will be available at the concert for $15 or can be downloaded at
