located in the heart of downtown Duncan

'it's all about the music'    
    Our heart lies in the attentive audience experience and we are revered for creating and maintaining one of the finest intimate showcase venues in the local / provincial / national and international Canadian music scene for over 13 years. We do believe we have had and will continue to have a positive effect on live entertainment production standards for Canadian venues and we do trust that our endeavours are appreciated by our audiences and performers alike. 

 Quick history: In May of 2014, after 10 years at the Duncan Garage, serendipitous synchronicity stepped in, as always, and allowed us to manifest the next  musical venture, the new Duncan Showroom-upstairs and the word is out that we are now an even more of a special space than our previous location. Visually it feels more open, yet maintaining that same intimacy with the attention to detail we are known for. The sound is said to be even better if possible, thanks in a great part to the latest edition to the Duncan Showroom crew, former owner/operator/janitor from the late Lay Back Lounge in Harrison Hot Springs, Tim- aka Dr Ted Cadillac. His wealth of technical knowledge, his bright shining attitude and his desire to think outside the box are a most welcome addition.
   Then along came the chance Oct. 1st 2015 to also use the space below as a venue and so the Duncan Showroom - downstairs was born where, because of the height of the ceiling, allowed us to raise the stage and thereby create the ability for a dance floor, when applicable, as well as now give ground floor access in downtown Duncan to arts and cultural events for all in our community.

Upon seeing light at the end of the tunnel … do order more tunnel 

 When treading on thin ice, you might as well dance 
   
Having just turned 65, I decided that I needed to pursue my dreams and visions with even more intensity and gusto than previously mustered. This is how I see it:

Tiger Moon / Joshua Smith

the new Duncan Showroom-downstairs, 131 Station Street, Duncan BC

Tiger Moon is a three-piece folk group boasting harmonious sounds, heartfelt melodies and foot stomping rhythms. Performing with a guitar, mandolin, bass and three voices, they draw their sound from Traditional Folk, Canadiana, Soul, Rock and even Reggae. They are a minimalist barn-burning band with syrup soaked harmonies. The band has released two EPs and performed over 350 shows already as a duo, and are currently in pre-production of an album with their three-piece outfit. Tiger Moon will be touring Canada through 2016 again as a three-piece, and are eager to get into the nooks and crannies of Canada!

Joshua Smith What one could suggest as being a Soul-inspired, captivating experience, Joshua is a singer/songwriter who mingles catchy clever lines and infectious vocals in the company of playful story telling. With a nod to “Motown”, Joshua Smith captures tradition and folk-friendly modernism with his songwriting prowess.
