An 11-year-old solo artist and two up-and-coming bands are the star attractions this Saturday evening at Happenin’ Heights IV – fourth in a series of live music events at a coffee house in Clayton Heights.

Like the three previous live music evenings, the event will showcase local up-and-coming solo artists and bands in a relaxed setting where audiences can gather over food and refreshments.

Madison Bell is young, but she’s been performing for the last two years at local talent contests, festivals and coffee shops. She also sang “on the big stage” at Surrey’s Canada Day event, says Happenin’ Heights organizer Greg Eymondson.

She’s “only 11 years old yet sings like a seasoned rock star!” he says.

Crossroads is a quartet of teens who play hard-driving tunes by Led Zeppelin and The Who, while The Jon Harris Band is performing an acoustic set.

The group is also pleased to announce a sponsorship agreement with Tom Lee Music (Langley).

“With a bigger, more professional sound system and an ever-expanding talent pool, this next event should be the best yet!” Eymondson says.

The performances get underway at 7 p.m., Feb. 22 at Wired Monk Coventry, 103 18408 64 Avenue.

You’re advised to get there early to ensure a good seat; the evenings are “growing exponentially” in popularity, through social media and by word-of-mouth, he adds.
