It's time to take a trip through the life story of...you.
Hot on the heels of the success of their debut release "The Twilight Fall", Chelsea McBride's Socialist Night School is taking their lush soundscapes on the road for their first tour ever. This two-set musical event starts on a rainy beach under purple skies and orange clouds, and takes you on a nostalgic journey through your childhood dreams, the growing pains of your early adulthood, and the peace of mind that comes with finding who you are. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes sad, The Twilight Tour takes you for a ride...but always brings you home.
Chelsea McBride’s Socialist Night School is a Toronto, Canada based 19 piece modern jazz orchestra led by fast-rising, 25 year old orchestration trail-blazer Chelsea McBride. Award-winning veterans like William Carn, Colleen Allen and Brownman Ali stand next to the city’s hottest 20-somethings in this contemporary modern big band. The Socialist Night School’s debut full-length album “The Twilight Fall” has been hailed by critics as “a dazzling set anyone with even an interest in big band should check out” (Chris Spector – Midwest Record), “a progressive jazz epic…a musical experience that delights in many ways” (Memphis Marty Delia – The Jazz Music Blog), and most recently received 4 stars in Downbeat Magazine. Bandleader Chelsea McBride’s compositions are influenced by the lineage of Bob Brookmeyer, Maria Schneider and Darcy James Argue, and the Socialist Night School is a storytelling vehicle for McBride’s evocative writing style.
