Random Chants - CANCELED

Random Chants is a musical duo consisting of two local, long-time musicians from very different genres.  The combined talent and experience they bring offers an interesting and exciting musical experience.

Kevin Sopchyshyn is an incredible multi-instrumentalist and vocalist with roots in heavy metal and rock.  His talents continue to grow with every chorus sung and chord strummed.  With bands such as Mayhem and Mother of Hundreds under his belt, it is no wonder why he is the incredible performer he is today.

Jeff Manners is no stranger to the stage, having been a part of multiple variety shows, musicals, and bands.  He honed his talent during his time with The Bounty Hunters and The Country Bandits, bringing that experience and knowledge with him to become the musician he is today.

Random Chants is the culmination of years of hard work and dedication to the musical craft and is a show that you will not soon forget.
