Wow. Didn’t know that little ol’ Whiterock B.C. had a premier music venue! Last night I was privileged to catch my dapper sax player pal Graham Howell (who’s played with the likes of The Powder Blues and Lee Aaron) playing in a David Bowie tribute band.
Yes, that’s right, a tribute band. Now typically I’m not big on tribute bands, unless they rock the house down with ear massaging musical feats of wonder. And that’s exactly A Night of Bowie did. Syl Thompson (Bowie) was fabulous and his entire backing band was drum tight! Ground control to Major Tom baby…
People, if you want to see and listen to great music in a world class music venue that understands the importance of sound and ambience you can look no further. A state of the art studio awaits you with the latest gear and a beautiful decor and lighting. An intimate amount of seating (100) guarantees a great view and sound. Not to mention the owners of the studio answer calls for tickets personally and remember talking to you when you show up. How cool is that?
Last but not least, hanging out in beautiful White Rock prior to the show at the Washington Avenue Grill drinking great wine and staring out at the sea and the beach wasn’t exactly onerous either (and WAG supports live music too!).
