Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
I am thankful for many things, including good friends, happiness, health and a rewarding career that has given me the opportunity to see an amazing amount of live music (especially this year).
Over the past week and a half I’ve seen three more great shows, which brings my Canada 150 total to 91 and on-track to break my Sesquicentennial goal of 100 shows.
Last week a friend and I let loose at The Rainbow Bistro to the always fantastic grooves of The Tony D band, which was boosted by help from their friends. I always know they will be hosting a great show, and this one was no different.
Last Saturday was something different, courtesy of the NAC Presents series (this is the first of five NAC Presents shows I’ll be seeing this season). Oh Suzanna played the newly renovated NAC Fourth Stage. Her brand of Folk/Roots/Blues/Country storytelling, along with the accomponying stories about growing up in Vancouver made for a memorizing show that brought back a lot of memories for me.
Last night it was back to Blues/Rock with River City Junction & Friends at the Atomic Rooster. When I saw the band earlier this year, I vowed to see their shows more often, and Sunday’s show was the perfect opportunity. I had such a fantastic time, I left wondering why I don’t attend these early Sunday evening shows more often.
