Evolutionary Band to be featured in Canadian Musician magazine

Confederation Secondary School’s Evolutionary will be among the bands featured in Canadian Musician magazine in the January/February issue on music education.
Canadian Musician is produced bi-monthly by Norris-Whitney Communications Incorporated. Published since 1979, the magazine’s primary interest is to profile Canadian musicians and musical events. 
Avril Lavigne is on the cover of the current issue. In the past, the magazine has profiled Rush, The Sheepdogs, The Tragically Hip, Hedley and The Trews, among others.
“Sudbury can be very proud that our young homegrown musicians are being recognized both nationally and internationally,” says Norm McIntosh, Director of the Evolutionary Band. “We welcome the opportunity to share our success story.”
With a readership of more than 60,000, the magazine is distributed through subscriptions and across music stores and newsstands in Canada. The magazine covers a broad spectrum of artists from a variety of musical genres.
Evolutionary is a 24 piece rock band that includes four vocalists, a nine piece rhythm section, a 14 piece rock horn section and is supported by a 14 member stage crew. As Action Sudbury’s “No Drinking and Driving” Band, Evolutionary has earned a solid reputation for its dynamic performances. 
The band tours from March until June, performing in front of more than 8,000 students per year. Their shows include a high-energy, choreographed presentation with an exciting light display including lasers, strobes, smoke machines and intelligent lighting.
