VIDEO: Arkells Surprise School Students
Arkells are currently on tour in support of their latest album Rally Cry... so they made an unexpected extra stop in Alberta this week to visit some fans at a Calgary school. The band surprised students at the Calgary Arts Academy and joined them for a performance of "People's Champ." Students at the school won a prize for their rendition of Arkells song "People's Champ"... but when they were asked to perform it again at an assembly, they had no idea that Max and the band would be joining them.

Pretty amazing day in Calgary. Snuck in to the @CalgaryArtsAcad as they performed their 200 person rendition of People’s⚡️Champ. Together with mayor @nenshi, our friends at @musicounts surprised the school with $5,000 worth of musical equipment. Arkellz is for the children. pic.twitter.com/0uQgxhLk2A— ARKELLS (@arkellsmusic) February 7, 2019
