Joining Miller and his band on this tour will be special guest Peter Frampton.

“2017 was an amazingly beautiful, creative and rewarding music experience for our band and our audience,” says Miller. “The band and production crew are working on creating an even better concert experience for 2018 and plan on wading even deeper into the musical waters. Peter Frampton and I enjoyed last summer. There is so much to explore and we are looking forward to seeing our friends in Canada and the States soon.”

Frampton adds, “Having had such a fantastic tour together last summer, Steve and I decided to keep going this year! Jamming together each night during Steve’s set is one of my favorite moments of the evening. Can’t wait to get back out there.”

Royal Theatre, 805 Broughton St
Tickets on sale to the general public Friday, December 15!
Tickets: $55.50/$45.50/$35.50 (plus service charges)

With her transcendent and energizing vocals, Grammy Award winning vocalist Ms. Lisa Fischer simply must be experienced live.  Featured in the Oscar-winning documentary ‘20 Feet from Stardom,’ Lisa has toured with Sting, Tina Turner, Chris Botti, Chaka Khan, and Nine Inch Nails, as well as every tour of the The Rolling Stones since 1989.  The Guardian describes Lisa’s voice as “so big and so spine-tinglingly beautiful that on a nightly basis it does the near impossible: it steals the show from the Rolling Stones.”

In performance with Grand BatonJC Maillard guitar, Aiden Carroll bass and Thierry Arpino drums, Lisa re-invents songs by Led Zeppelin, Amy Grant, Little Willie John, and The Rolling Stones as well as her own originals.  With a genre-bending fusion of jazz, progressive rock, and psychedelic soul, with African, Middle Eastern, and Caribbean rhythms, this band’s unique sound is powerful, inventive and classic.

After decades of bringing raw soul to the stage for world famous artists, Lisa Fischer is emerging as the most inventive and heartfelt interpreter of classic rock songs working today.

The VJS is thrilled to present Ms. Lisa Fischer & Grand Baton in Victoria again (between a seven night run in Paris and two nights in Tokyo) after their knockout headlining performance at the 2015 TD Victoria International JazzFest.

Tickets on sale to the general public Friday, December 15!

A Christmas Carol: Now playing at the Belfry

A Christmas Carol
by Charles Dickens

adapted by Michael Shamata

A CHRISTMAS CAROL at the BelfryUPDATE: Held over to December 23.

A big thank-you to the Belfry Theatre for inviting us out to the opening night of a Christmas Carol.  This was our first visit since the renovations to the main lobby which are absolutely breath taking.  We couldn’t have had a better night on the town meeting some of the board members, Belfry supporters, and of course, watching such a classic production.  You too, can be a part of the festive magic.  A Christmas Carol runs through December 17.  Tickets can be purchased from the Belfry Theatre Box Office

A ghost story for Christmas, the Belfry’s acclaimed production of A Christmas Carol has returned, along with some of the best-loved Dickensian characters of all time. A story of love, generosity and second chances, it takes us through the darkness and into the light of true joy and celebration!

Why Michael Shamata chose A Christmas Carol

It is simply the most powerful story that I know – for any time of the year, and it is a beautiful way to celebrate the true meaning of the holiday season. It makes people happy and reminds us that it’s not too late to become a better person; to think about others and to be grateful for the love in our lives. I have had a profound relationship with this piece for over a quarter of a century, and could happily spend as much time again in its embrace. —Michael Shamata

 

“One of the best productions I’ve seen on the Belfry stage in 20 years…gorgeous…everyone will love this show…” CBC Radio

“4.5 stars…smart…a visual delight…if you’re going to pick just one yuletide entertainment…this one’s a solid bet.” Times Colonist

“This is the best holiday show I know, for people of any age, creed, or colour. Its message of love is universal and one that we need now more than ever.” Toronto Star

The Stampeders LIVE at McPherson Playhouse in 2018

The Stampeders - McPherson PlayhouseThe Stampeders LIVE
McPherson Playhouse
April 4, 2018

No seventies group represented Canada’s musical identity to the world like The Stampeders. A quick look at Canada’s music scene from 1971 until 1976 confirms The Stampeders were truly the country’s international musical ambassadors, touring more extensively in Canada and overseas than any other Canadian group during that time. In 1977 the trio: Rich Dodson (lead guitar), Kim Berly (drums) and Ronnie King (bass) parted company but reunited, fittingly at the Calgary Stampede, 15 years later in 1992.

Since then they’ve been recognized by SOCAN for their Lifetime Achievement, been inducted into the SOCAN Songwriters Hall of Fame on five occasions and the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame for their 1971 seminal hit Sweet City Woman.
