August 8: Smokey Robinson
Everyone, it’s Smokey Robinson. The man has been delighting audiences since the late 50s and has maintained that same energy throughout. He’s given us countless hits with the Miracles and as a solo artist, including “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me”, “I Second That Emotion”,”The Tears Of A Clown”,”My Girl”, “Get Ready”, “Ain’t That Peculiar” and so many more. Come on! Just go to this show!
August 9: Caamp & Yola
To cap of this year’s amazing lineup of Out of Space acts, Canal Shores will be welcoming Caamp and Yola. Caamp started off as the Taylor Meier and Evan Westfall, before expanding the band with Matt Venison to create the folk band they are today. Caamp’s sound is a lovely and welcoming, Yola‘s sound is a nice meeting of contemporary senses and throwback influences. Her voice evokes strong and powerful soul singers while her instrumentation is straight-up country balladry. Her album Walk Through Fire blends these two world together so succinctly and warmly, making for an ideal way to finish off this years Out of Space series.
