The Nipissing University Student Union (NUSU) and Capitol Centre today announced their new collaboration.
On October 29th, River Town Saints and The Abrams will be the acts performing at a concert for both Nipissing University and Canadore College students.
“We are excited to be working alongside the Capitol Centre on this concert and think that this is a perfect venue for students to really appreciate the arts scene in North Bay”, NUSU President Jordan Andrews commented.
“The Capitol Centre is a staple of the community, and with it approaching 30 years of service to the city, we are thrilled to host these amazing bands there.”
River Town Saints, an Ottawa based band, released their debut single ‘A Little Bit Goes A Long Way’ in late 2015, landing them on many “Artists To Watch Lists” for 2016. Their new hit ‘Cherry Bomb’ is a firecracker of a single.
Brothers John and James Abrams have been performing for over 15 years. Their self-titled album’s first single, “Fine,” debuted on the Canadian Country charts in May 2016, with the music video premiering on CMT’s Chevy Top 20 Countdown.
NUSU and the Capitol Centre are looking forward to a new partnership that will bring more youth/student events to the Capitol Centre stage.
Capitol Centre Marketing Manager Kate Ricci noted, “We have an amazing program for college and university students called U-Go. Students get a discounted rate on several Capitol Centre Presents performances. This makes it affordable to come to shows on that very tight student budget.”
