Why You Will Love Lively Youth
“Our client chose SQUID/Lively Youth for their closing banquet. They wanted to give their attendees a good show featuring local talent that shows off the cultural influences of our region in a fun and energetic performance. What the artists delivered was so much more than even we anticipated with the audience leaping to their feet at the end to a standing ovation. The performance started with a dark room as SQUID entered with such high energy incredible talent and the room was captivated. Lively Youth took the stage as SQUID finished their performance and again wowed the attendees with traditional songs, fantastic vocals, high energy fiddle and overall wonderful talent. I would not hesitate to hire both again to dazzle attendees with performers who are among the best talent our region has to offer.”

“I absolutely loved Lively Youth! I booked them for the CIS Basketball Championship Banquet and they had the room hopping- university basketball players and their coaches from across the country took to the dance floor to learn a few Cape Breton dance moves! As a music industry person, I so appreciated their talents and as a fellow Cape Bretoner, they made me proud! I highly recommend this group for an event- they certainly “liven” the atmosphere! Great talent!”
“The audience was completely engaged and engrossed in every note and lyric they played ! It was a complete joy to watch the performance!!”
