NEW GLASGOW – The Riverfront Jubilee is bringing back Jube in January, a local music event, on January 25, 2020 at Glasgow Square Theatre. 

“For the 25th anniversary of the Riverfront Jubilee, we want to create as many opportunities as possible to get people together to enjoy amazing music, since that is why the Jubilee began: to celebrate great music,” explained Janine Linthorne, chairperson for the Riverfront Jubilee volunteer board of directors. “Jube in January is an event that has been on hiatus the past few years. We thought this was the perfect year to bring it back, while celebrating 25 years of the Riverfront Jubilee.” 

The Riverfront Jubilee began as a small local music festival and over the past 25 years has morphed into an East Coast Music Award nominee, Tourism Nova Scotia Signature Event, Nova Scotia Music Award winning three-day music festival. In celebration of the festival’s 25th anniversary the Riverfront Jubilee will be hosting events throughout the year leading up to the August long weekend, beginning with Jube in January.  

Neon Soul Machine (NSM) is a 10-piece party band, based in New Glasgow, with a setlist inspired by everything soulful and groovy, from Motown hits of decades past to funk-inspired renditions of modern-day bangers. One of the most recent products of a vibrant and unique local music scene, NSM have only been rocking out together since 2018, but this band features some of the most in-demand performers in the Pictou County area. With members having performed as freelancers in countless musical genres, and others with noted local groups such as Pictou County Pop Classics, Momentary Lapse: A Pink Floyd Show, Hot Mess, Grooveback, and The Collective (to name a few), Neon Soul Machine keeps people moving with their fresh, soulful groove infused with a generous helping of East Coast spirit.

The Collective is an electrifying six-piece band from New Glasgow, who are currently making waves in the local music scene with their unique, genre-defying blend of indie-pop dance grooves that consistently leave their audiences wanting more. Having just released their debut single, Beast, to an overwhelmingly positive response The Collective is poised to launch into what is certain to be a bright trajectory in the music industry.

Trilogy consists of three Pictou County musicians that have combined their unique styles into one harmonious sound. Whether you’re a country fan, a pop lover or anything in between – they’ve got you covered, keeping you on your toes by creating a sound that appeals to a wide variety of audiences. Not only can Trilogy change it up by genre, but each member can carry a tune on multiple instruments. Each musician in this group brings something special to the table as they all come from different musical backgrounds and experiences.

Musician, Randy Swallow, returned from British Columbia and rejoined Dave MacDonald and James Swallow to form the Randy Swallow band.
