PEMBROKE – Pembroke’s own Sierra Levesque is set to return to Festival Hall at 7pm on Saturday, October 30th as she opens for Destroyer, Canada’s premier KISS tribute band.
After a nearly two-year hiatus from large scale live performances, 16-year-old rock musician Sierra is very excited to have the opportunity to light up the Festival Hall stage once again.
“During the COVID lockdowns I shifted my focus from live shows to recording original music and learning new guitar solo techniques. I am really looking forward to incorporating these added skills into my opening set on the 30th,” she said.
Sierra will be accompanied on stage by great local musicians Richie Burns (Drums), Kyle McKey (Guitar), and Andrew Swan (Bass), who are all just as excited to return to the local venue where Sierra last performed as opening act for Glass Tiger in November, 2019.
Born and raised in Pembroke, Sierra began pursuing music at the age of seven and plays guitar, piano, bass and drums. She is a regular anthem singer for the Ottawa Senators (NHL), and the Ottawa Redblacks (CFL), and can often be found performing at an array of restaurants and establishments across Renfrew County and the Ottawa region.
She has a song repertoire of over 200 covers and 40 original songs and performed live 98 times in 2019, prior to COVID. Sierra is best known for her powerful voice and relatable original songs that have the energy to help lead the new generation of Rock ‘N Roll.
As a big fan of KISS music, Sierra hopes to start the show with an impressive set of her own which will include some of her original material along with a classic cover or two thrown in.
“Those who would like to keep up with me and my music can find me on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and TikTok under the username ‘Sierra Levesque Music’,” she noted.
Tickets for this rockin’ night of entertainment and further details about the show can be found on the Festival Hall website at www.festhall.ca.
