Closing Dinner Entertainment Delhi 2 Dublin Guaranteed to get you dancing!
We are extremely fortunate to be able to have a famous Vancouver based band called Delhi 2 Dublin bring their uniquely Canadian and mixed cultural sounds to our stage! Delhi 2 Dublin has played top festivals in Canada, the UK and the U.S. and, in 2011, expanded its horizons to include performances in the Pacific Rim and Europe. A new album and new international touring opportunities all signal that originality and evolution are all part of the Delhi 2 Dublin experience. Described by one magazine as the “United Nations of rock ‘n’ roll”, they have become one of Canada’s most buzzed-about bands. This year will only see them enhancing that reputation. After all…where else are you going to see a amazing fiddle player rocking out with a kilt-wearing Korean flanked by two bouncing Bhangra percussionists and a vocalist who looks like he would be at home in a Bollywood music video?! Turn Up The Stereo is released August 28th 2012 in Canada and February 19th 2013 internationally.
