 An impressive  Tuesday night   crowd showed up at the Slice , Nov. 30 to bid adieu to local synth pop musician  Ty VandenDool, who is relocating to Calgary.

 I caught the end of  the early starting show, and aptly most of VandenDool’s set was  “leaving” themed.


 Vandendool danced as his two keyboardists and a bassist soloed.


 Vandendool may be  young, but his heart definitely  lives the ’80s.


His sound is very much influenced by ’80s synth driven pop music.

 I arrived in the middle of his song “Don’t Go.”


 After a few more  songs about departure,” the appreciative audience called him back for an encore. to emphasize the ’80s influence, he tackled a-ha’s  1985 hit “ Take on Me” and he almost hit the high falsetto of the chorus.,” which drew applause.


As so many young people who leave Lethbridge, Vandendool will be back. He played his new single noting “ I’ll have to come back in February to support this single,” he said.
