Alan Syliboy and The Thundermakers bring their celebration of Mi’kmaw culture to King’s Theatre! Their multi-media show is a unique mix of traditional music, new songs, storytelling, and visual projections that include animations.
The band includes Alan Syliboy, percussionist and storyteller; his son, Evan Syliboy, lead guitar; Hubert Francis, lead vocalist; Lukas Pearce, bassist, sound designer and video mapping projectionist; Matt Gallant, drummer; Joanne Hatfield, vocalist, guitarist, flute, piano and percussion; and Aaron Prosper on vocals & percussion. It’s tradition with a rock edge.
Alan Syliboy was born and raised in Truro, Nova Scotia. Living in the Millbrook First Nation community, he journeys through his life with a demeanor of strength. Alan has built an ever growing list of accomplishments throughout his lifetime, although many people are most familiar with his beautiful and unique works of art that captivate and inspire us.
