'it's 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 Canadian music scene, not only locally / provincially / nationally but internationally as well for over 18 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. 

 

 

for those of you who either can't make it to the event cause of illness or family emergencies or you don't live in our immediate  area

we 'live' stream all of our concerts to youtube and facebook

(if you are local and watching from home, sitting in the chair of your choice, wearing the clothes of your choice, drinking the beverage of your choice, possibly even inhaling the fresh air of your choice and all for 'free', why not donate the ticket price or parts thereof so we can continue this 'free' to you service)
 

one way to support the Showroom experience is to view and possibly buy a photo book of past performers

Typsy Gypsy Jazz

The Duncan Showroom, 131 Station Street, Duncan BC

A musical journey through Django and Swing. Calling beautiful mid-East Vancouver Island home, the "Typsys" are happy to offer up a mélange of Acoustic Swing Jazz, specifically in the traditional Manouche-Gypsy format and style (from the late 1920's through the '30's-featuring many compositions by Jean Baptiste “Django” Reinhardt-as performed by his famous quintet, The Hot Club of France), but also in other varied popular swing style songs and instrumentals. Jazz Manouche groups generally consisted of a lead guitar, violin, two rhythm guitars and bass. This music can be both melancholy and passionate, often played with fire and panache. The Typsy Gypsys keep that tradition alive and are very excited to be able to share this exciting music genre with any kind of audience, including ones new to this experience as well as old school Django fans!

Aleksi Campagne

The Duncan Showroom, 131 Station Street, Duncan BC

Aleksi’s last year has been a whirlwind! In July 2022, Aleksi was selected as a Mariposa Folk Festival Emerging Artist to perform at the festival. In December, his single Another Day was picked by Paul Corby as a Top Single of 2022. In March, he was celebrated by Tom Coxworth as one of the Top 5 Favourite acts at the Folk Alliance International Conference, alongside acts like The Fretless and Mary Gautier. In May, his single Won’t be Scared was selected as the only Canadian finalist in the Kerrville Folk Festival’s Grassy Hill New Folk Competition for Emerging Songwriters. In July 2023, Aleksi launched his debut album to critical acclaim. In a review in Le Devoir by Sylvain Cormier, Aleksi’s debut was compared to that of Patrick Watson and Half Moon Run. And, according to Roots Music Canada, “Aleksi Campagne finessed one of the most musically ambitious accomplishments of the year, an impeccable double album, one set of songs in two conjoined bilingual packages.” And, in January 2024, Aleksi was named Penguin Eggs & Roots Music Canada's New Discovery of the Year!

Triple guitar attack, funky west coast rockin' blues with a rock solid rhythm section laying the foundation. This All Star cast of musicians has played some of the biggest stages with bands like The Headpins, Doucette, David Gogo, Amos Garrett, Hwy 61 and many more.

No gunslinger attitudes here. 3 guitarists that encourage each other, push each other, and stay out of the way when needed.(and the occasional triple guitar harmonies!) We're all about having fun, and it shows in our performances.

$25 tickets
