PELLA, (11/10/2014)(readMedia)-- Davenport native Daniel Kuttler will perform across the Midwest with Central College's A Cappella Choir. This 60-voice ensemble performed Nov. 7-9 at schools, churches and performing arts centers near Des Moines, and the group will make an extended Midwest tour in May.

Director Mark Babcock, an associate professor of music, said tour performances help the group to raise their artistic vision and serve as ambassadors of Central College. "I am extremely proud of their professionalism, consistency and persistence this fall," Babcock said.

Central College is a residential liberal arts college dedicated to the education of 1,500 undergraduate students. Founded in 1853, the college is affiliated with the Reformed Church in America and NCAA Division III athletics. Central is a recognized leader in study abroad as a result of its international, residential programs.

Communion Clubnights in November are right around the corner with another incredible new lineup! Every month Clubnights brings together a roomful of talented artists for a unique musical experience and November is no different. We are excited to announce some of this month's artists including Highasakite, Count This Penny, The Soil and The Sun, and Mikhael Paskalev. Check out the full lineup's for all cities and get pre-sale tickets at www.communionmusic.com

Oslo residents, Highasakite make pop music, but an adventurous brand of indie pop full of contrasts. Once you hear Highasakite you'll wonder how you ever got by without them, they have an endless sound oscillating between density and spaciousness. Their debut album, Silent Treatment is filled with radical texture and startling immediacy, Ingrid Helene Håvik's idiosyncratic vocals perfectly joins the albums eccentricity and accessibility. With drummer Trond Bersu, Øystein Skar and Marte Eberson on synthesizers, and Kristoffer Lo on guitar, flugabone and percussion make up the rest of the band. All of this combined gives the band a richer texture and more potent sound.

Count This Penny formed in 2009 when Amanda and Allen Rigell cancelled their cable and picked up a couple guitars. In the time since, they've appeared on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion, seen their debut EP chart in the iTunes singer songwriter Top 10, and shared stages with The Head & The Heart, Shovels & Rope, Kacey Musgraves and The Lone Bellow.  After amassing sold out shows throughout Wisconsin, they were named one of "10 Wisconsin Bands to Watch" by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The duo has since expanded to a four piece band for their forthcoming EP Wolves Are Sheep. Catch them at Communion Club Nights in November.

The Soil & the Sun is corn-fed, Michigan-made, Experiential Spiritual Orchestral Rock. Originating in 2008 as a two-piece band, the group has grown and matured into a seven-piece community of friends and musicians. Oboe, violin, guitars, accordion, percussion, piano, keys and vocals, cooperate to create complex harmonies, layered melodies, and driving rhythms. The careful orchestration and intentional instrumentation will speak to your soul.

Mikhael Paskalev makes pop music with a twist, but roots in indie and alternative country rock, inspired by names such as Paul Simon, The Shins, Edward Sharpe, The Mamas and the Papas and The Everly Brothers. His songs are recognized by the instrumentation, unusual structures and strong melodies. At times they are shamelessly catchy, but never leave the lovely and raw soundscape in which he and producer wonderkid Joe Wills chooses to operate.

Listen up New York City, this month's clubnight will be running their Les Amis thrift store in support of The Bowery Mission. The Bowery Mission feeds over 8,000 people on Thanksgiving day alone! All the money raised will go directly to feeding the homeless on Thanksgiving day so come out on Tuesday, November 4th at Rockwood Music Hall and shop for a good cause.

We couldn't be more excited to bring all of these artists to you! It's been one year since we launched Clubnights in the US, and we're glad to have such a fantastic community of artists and listeners in our family. With over a year of tours under our belt -- we still feel the best is yet to come and we'll be back next month with another round of specially curated shows. Stay tuned!

Thanks for your support and we can't wait to see you at the shows! Thursday, November 20, 2014 in Rock Island at RIBCO Daytrotter.
