“So far, we’ve seen tremendous support for this series from the community,” said Adam Fox, NMC’s Director of Programs. “Live band karaoke was a big hit at our last event, so we’re bringing it back for our final installment of the season. We’ll be asking fans on NMC’s social media pages to give us their top CanCon requests, and the most requested tracks will get added to the final setlist.”

Whether it’s a date night out or a pre-game with friends, Studio Bell After Hours is the newest addition to Calgary’s nightlife scene.
