THE HIT BUDDY HOLLY SHOW
Starring Zachary Stevenson
Friday June 23, 2017 & Saturday June 24, 2017

(Two of the early shows are sold out and the other three shows are selling quickly. Don't put it off.

Back by popular demand to Blue Frog, Zachary Stevenson celebrates the life and music of legendary rock & roller Buddy Holly, whose career was cut tragically short by a plane crash in 1959. Equal parts actor and musician, Zach engages his audience with high-octane renditions of Buddy’s classic hits as well as humorous stories about his experience playing the 50s icon.

Zachary led the Arts Club Productions of “THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY” downtown Vancouver which sold-out over 100 performances and prompted the Vancouver Sun to name him one of the top ten talents to watch out for.

COLIN LINDEN

Thursday, July 13, 915PM SHOW
This show is for ages 19 and over

EARLY SHOW SOLD OUT, TICKETS NOW ON SALE FOR THE LATE SHOW.

Colin Linden is a genuine renaissance man of roots music. He's a singer and songwriter of great skill, an in-demand and prolific record producer (Bruce Cockburn, Tom Wilson, Colin James), a sideman to the stars as guitarist for the likes of Bruce Cockburn, Emmylou Harris, and Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, and, for the past decade, a member of the highly successful trio, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings.

At last count, the total of recordings on which he has played approaches 400, while over 100 albums bear the “Produced by Colin Linden” credit.

Colin's songs have been covered by The Band, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Keb' Mo', and Colin James, and his well-stocked trophy case includes seven Juno, multiple Maple Blues Awards, and a Toronto Arts Award. He was nominated for a Grammy Award for the star-studded A Tribute To Howlin' Wolf CD, and was involved in the ground-breaking O Brother Where Art Thou phenomenon. Linden has a well-deserved reputation as a slide guitar virtuoso of real originality, and his riveting slide work can be heard on albums from such artists as Cassandra Wilson, The Rankin Family and Whitey Johnson, the hit ABC TV series “NASHVILLE”, and on his own sizeable solo catalogue.
