I have been working hard to fill this summer up with fabulous concerts. I’m so please with how it has all danced out and look forward to hitting some stellar stages and sharing our music with you all.

Thrilled to be invited to the 29th Annual Mission Folk Music Festival. This festival has been on my hit list since I joined the Hot Club back in 2001. We will be featured on the Saturday MainStage along with workshop fun and more. Tickets are only $29 and there is camping (musical jams) to enjoy on top of all the day time music. I can’t think of a better place to be!
For 26 years, the Harmony Arts Festival in West Vancouver, has been a signature summer event. The 12 day festival draws crowds from all over the Lower Mainland to celebrate a harmonious balance of visual, culinary, literary and performing arts on the spectacular West Vancouver waterfront. World-class musical performances, inspiring visual art and mouth-watering gastronomic events!
HOT CLUB HITS THE ROAD – Summer 2016 Mini-Tour
You can’t imagine the effort that has gone into getting our band out of the Greater Vancouver area. I have tried on a number of occasions over the past 15 years but only managed to succeed a couple times. I am self taught at this booking dealio and with all the festival and grant applications, communications, contracts, billets, travel expense etc. I often hit a number of road blocks and eventually drop the ball. Seems we hit a stroke of luck this time and will head to the Kelowna area at the end of August. Thanx to my old friend Karma Reine for instigating this adventure. We will return to the wonderful Dream Cafe in Penticton Friday, Aug 26th as well as the West Kelowna World Music Festival and Kelowna’s Parks Alive! on Saturday, Aug 27th. More details to come but please help us spread the word and help make our little mini-tour a great success!
