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

James Keelaghan

The Duncan Showroom, 131 Station Street, Duncan BC

His new release, “Second Hand,” has done spectacularly well at radio, with countless plays across Canada and around the world. On this months important international Folk Alliance International Charts, he has the #2 album, the #2 song and four songs in the top 20. It had been a while since his last recording of new music, but clearly it was worth the wait.

The Canadian folk veteran also recently sold out a string of dates in Alberta. Not only is the new material as good as anything he has ever written, but his performances are also as engaging as ever. James Keelaghan is an artist who is clearly on top of his game.

Singer/Songwriter Zach holds no constraints in his creative process. His organic songwriting style and folksy vocals bring a homespun roots charm to influences from indie folk, retro pop and alt-country music. With deep cutting lyrics and dramatic instrumentation, Zach’s sound is marked by passionate emotionalism

Kendal is an awesome singer/songwriter from Ladysmith

RainFest - Calico

The Duncan Showroom, 131 Station Street, Duncan BC

BC Folk/Americana band called CALICO based out of Victoria & Vancouver. The band formed in March of 2020 at the start of the pandemic and the members of the band are seasoned professional musicians playing in bands like The Paperboys, Kutapira, Coco Jafro, Los Duendes, I'm The Living, Buckman Coe, Tonye Aganaba, Turunesh, Mazacote and the list goes on.

The themes of growth and transformation embedded in our music are directly linked to the experience during the pandemic. Amidst the isolation and chaos (Tony Cecchetti (lead vocals & rhythm guitar), Chris Couto (BG vocals & drum kit), Will Lloyd, (electric guitar) and JeanSe Le Doujet (BG vocals & bass) found ways to connect through writing music together while in the intimacy and confines of our own homes. From this, the collective CALICO was born.

The hope is that the nostalgic and deeply poetic dreamy music created by CALICO moves you.

Maybe it reminds you of a place or a feeling, a lover, your childhood dog, a walk with an old friend on a starry night, or maybe those you miss most in life and don’t see enough. May it bring you joy, peace, and love.

The Islanders Hot Club (Le Hot Club des Insulaires) has been entertaining fans since 2019 and has performed at many Francophone (and Anglophone!) events and concerts around Victoria and Vancouver Island. The group is co-led by double bassist Tim Croft and guitarist Nick Mintenko. In true gypsy fashion, these two multi-instrumentalists have been known to trade out instruments on a whim! The co-leaders also double on vocals (singing en français!).
These experienced players re-live the classic era of French and Gypsy Swing music. With modern arrangements and melodic grooves; this trio (sometimes quartet) of vagabonds keeps it swinging all night long.
