MUM alive and kicking! - October 6, 2017

Welcome 2017! - January 15, 2017

2016 was a busy one - with Mic'd up Murrayville (Check out Facebook.com/mikedupmurrayville) every Thursday, Porter's gigs and a wedding reception at the end of the year. I also wrote my first (and probably last) Christmas song. I'll get a link to it up here in the near future.

Lots of things on the horizon for 2017 with MUM starting again on February 16th. I have a trip to Honduras and Belize at the end of January and a trip to Japan in April. We always take our travel guitars - they are great ice breakers. You never now what may inspire you to write your next song.

 

All the best to you for a fabulous 2017!

Porter's Open Mic/Jam Every Thursday! - November 18, 2015

First Annual Porter's Appreciation Party - September 9, 2013

What a great time we had last night! Bill Buurmeester - proprietor of Porter's - had a wine and cheese "musician's appreciation" party last night for all of the musicians who have performed at Porter's during the last couple of years. It was a fantastic opportunity to network and to be able to listen to some very talented musicians! We had Bases Loaded, Lesismore, Dale Sawatsky, Dave Mercer, Bradley McGillivray Band, Three Pound Cloud, Rice, Simon Jarett and more! There were also a few newcomers that were very talented. I would like to thank the boys in the band - Colin, Bill and Don - as well as Siobhan and Raina for coming out and doing a few numbers to make it memorable.

Closing Night for Victoria's House - February 25, 2012

Tonight is the final performance of Victoria's House at the Langley Playhouse. Shannon Lee has enjoyed this run portraying Margaret St James, the eccentric British aristrocrat who dabbles into the occult and knows all about "old houses and the spirits in them."

The cast and crew have enjoyed a fabulous run including a held-over week that wasn't advertised because it was already SOLD OUT!
