It's the dawn of a new day. The sun is but a few minutes from rising and you're immersed in a feeling like you've got the entire world to yourself while everyone else is still fast asleep. You walk to the beach from your favourite getaway (perhaps a welcoming family cottage) and proceed to walk down to its shores. Removing your socks and shoes, you sit with your feet in the wet sand as the gentle waves wash up to greet your toes. The feeling is complimented by the cool morning breeze while it graces your face. At this point, no problem in the world seems to exist and you're locked into a moment of absolute peace.

The young musician has been receiving acclaim since his Yesterday's Smile EP debuted in 2016. His music is honest, genuine and, often times, can be taken as that ideal sound you’d love to have playing around the campfire on those relaxing, cool summer nights.
Seasoned drummer, executive chef and all-around nice guy, Chris DeMelo is no stranger to the music scene. Having lent his talents and time to several notable local bands like Drophanger, Ironboud, Mirage, Nostalgic Brightlights, Dustbin Flowers and Flight Of The Songbirds, he's learned a thing or three about the ins-and-outs of the scene.
Without further ado, here's what he has to say:
Last Saturday night marked the official re-launch for Reverb's return! The sounds were awesome, the energy was wild and EVAC was packed as the community came in to show their support. The night was a complete success and everyone had a blast!
