Intellifunk nominated for live album

  • Oct. 6, 2006 8:00 a.m.

November will be a busy month for the Vancouver-based Haida band Intellifunk.
The group has been nominated for a Canadian Aboriginal Music Award, in the best group category, for its live album “I Never Promised You Tomorrow”.
“What a great surprise,” the band’s Jamie Collison told the Observer, just after he learned about the nomination. “I don’t care if we win or lose, getting nominated is the thing.”
Intellifunk – which is made up of Mr. Collison, his son Robert, daughter Gillian and Trevor Ainsworth – has been invited to perform at the aboriginal music award ceremony in Toronto on Nov. 24 and then at a concert the following night at the Skydome.
“We’re in, and we’re totally excited,” he said.
But before that happens, Intellifunk will be appearing at a national concert in Winnipeg, for the Aboriginal People’s Choice Music Awards. That concert takes place Nov. 3, and the band has received a couple of grants to cover their travel costs. That includes $1,500 from Mr. Collison’s union, the CAW.
