This new CD is packed with amazing talent. Fronting the band is both Rebecca Noelle (La Voix, The Peptides, David Gogo, and The Rumours) and Jeff Rogers (The Cooper Brothers and Silver Creek) on vocals. Both musicians have very successful careers on their own but have decided to bring their talents to the project.
With a sonically monumental performance and an energizing visual display, The Commotions command every room they play, drawing in audiences with their sizzling brass section, thumping backbeat, and sensitive ballads.
Come and join us for our CD release party at Ottawa's Babylon Nightclub on December 1.
Everyone is invited and encouraged to join in on the fun, so invite your friends. Come and see what all the excitement is about!
