King Neptune & His Tridents is an all-star gathering of Guelph musicians, who first started playing together in 2003. The event that brought them together was CFRU’s Glam Slam Ball, which was first popularized in Guelph in the early 90s, as a “fake prom” where young students and people waaaay past high school could get dressed up and party like there were no chaperones in the room. Rekindled six years ago at the Ebar, the Glam Slam has gained new life as a hotly anticipated, annual, pre-Halloween bash that marries amazing music with dancing, formal wear, and a unique “prom” theme.
This year, King Neptune & His Tridents pay tribute to pop icon Michael Jackson, performing songs that span his career and are guaranteed to light up the dance floor. This 2009 Glam Slam incarnation of the band features Alison Bell-Smith, Andrew Collins, Bill Whitehead, Chris Hierlihy, Dave Withers, Drew Mcivor, Jeff Munro, Jessy Bell Smith, Johnny Merritt, Jordan Howard, Tristan O’Malley, and Vish Khanna. Patrons are all encouraged to wear prom wear of course but dressing as some incarnation of the King of Pop would be double nice!
