This Week in Chester 

Tomorrow, Thursday, Alex Cuba will be bringing his "sugarcane-sweet melodies, pop-soul hooks and powerful guitar riffs" to the Chester Playhouse stage at 7:30 pm.

Alex Cuba was born in Cuba and was immersed in music at a young age. He went on to study guitar and bass and after moving to Vancouver, recorded his first album. He then recorded his solo debut album Humo De Tobaco which earned him his first Juno award for World Music Album of the Year.
His latest album, Healer, takes him back to his roots, with guitars and vocal harmonies - an upbeat, acoustic soul album full of optimism.

I told my wife she drew her eyebrows too high.
