The Revolving Doors — formerly the Alumni Band — returns to play the McMillan Arts Centre Oct. 9.

Revolving Doors are back in rotation

Former Alumni Band returns to MAC for show this Friday

The Revolving Doors return with a new — and appropriate — name when they play at the McMillan Arts Centre Friday, Oct. 9 at 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:30).

The group was formerly known as the Alumni Band when performing at the MAC, as several members of the band attended the building for their Grade 3 schooling many years ago. The band has now fixed on the name “The Revolving Doors” as they never know who, out of their ever-expanding and contracting roster, will be available for rehearsing and performing.

On Oct. 9, it will most likely be a combination of: Bill Naylor, Dean Williams, John Lundine, Ade Barnum, Larry Levlars, Bill Dellert and Liz DeBarros. Instruments will be swapped, lead singers will change and fun will ensue. Most band members play several different instruments and the bass guitar is used almost like “pass the parcel”.

The Revolving doors will focus their set on covers of many well-known and well-loved folk songs on acoustic instruments, so the electric guitars and dance tunes will be left at home this time.

Tickets are $15, or $12 for OCAC members, and are available for pre-sale at the MAC.
