Maple Ridge rock band Angel Down is ready to set the stage for Canadian icons Finger Eleven in Mission next week.

The band features LT on drums, Joel Logan on guitar, Gordie Buerk on vocals and Jay ‘Danger’ Graham on bass guitar.

Originally formed in 2007 as a hard rock cover band, Angel Down’s recent switch to original tunes is paying off.

Buerk says the band’s on an upswing of popularity with a management deal under way and a plethora of new shows and big name acts to support.

The band is currently recording on a album titled Sundown, which will feature eight original tracks.

Other bands on the bill include The Envy, a rock ensemble recently signed to KISS rocker Gene Simmons’ recording label, and Oshawa’s Hail The Villain, who have been storming the airwaves with their hit single Take Back The Fear.

• Angel Down play an all-ages show with Finger Eleven on Wednesday, Feb. 9 at the Clarke Theatre in Mission. Tickets are $34.50 plus service charges and tax online, $34.50 when delivered or $40 at the door. For tickets, visit www.ticketmaster.ca or call 604-805-3495 for delivery in Maple Ridge. Doors open at 7 p.m. Angel Down takes the stage at 7:30 p.m.
