I have a couple of new venues coming up in the next few weeks I want to let you know about. It’s always awesome to see places take a chance on live music so I want to give them a big kudos and ask you all to please make an effort to show them how much we music fans appreciate what they’re doing. I apologize in advance for repeating this theme throughout my post but I truly believe that pro level live music can survive in these ‘hard times’ if the fans show their support.
I’m playing with the trio this coming weekend (Nov 2,3) at The Tudor Ale House at 187 – 176th Street, in South Surrey, right by the border truck crossing. The venue has been updated a lot since the old Tudor Inn days and has a cool vibe. Yes, the pole is gone.
There’s a large party booked for Sat night but I’m sure they could still squeeze you in if you can’t make it Friday . There’s room to dance so we plan to rock it up more than usual. The Tudor is planning to have a band each weekend, if they get decent turnouts, so, if at all possible, come on out and support live music and the venues that make it possible. And, they are offering a shuttle by ‘tip’ only, which you can reserve by calling 778-294-1080.
On Thursday, Nov 1 at 6:30pm I’m playing solo at the Vault and then I’m back at the Vault again Fri, Sat/Nov 9, 10 starting at 8:15.
On Fri, Sat/Nov 16, 17 from 8:30-11:30 I’m playing solo at Bistro 72, a new venue in Newton, which is a very cozy, cool, Tapas/Tasting style restaurant with great food, wine and brew – and reasonable prices. It’s in the newly renovated basement of the well established and popular Old Surrey Restaurant at 13483 – 72 Ave. They don’t have a website up quite yet but I found this number on yellow pages – 604-599-1972. Again, these folks who take the leap to support live music deserve a chance to make it work, so, if you can, please come by and check it out.
You can find more gigs and info here.
I wish you all peace & health.
