'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 17 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. 

 

Due to COVID 19

we have entered into the 'live broadcast' aspect of presenting entertainment

 a new normal music scene that includes live streaming 

as audience members are now allowed into our venue to witness live performances

we must, as of Sept. 13th 2021, make sure all audience members entering the premise have had at least one vaccination shot so far

as of Oct. 24th it will extended to making sure 2 vaccinations have been taken by audience members entering into the premise

masks must be worn to enter the premise as well

 

 

as a live broadcast business

our crew works with the entertainers and all on site to guarantee

all COVID protocols that we have in place are maintained

to make sure the government guidelines are followed

The Gathering of Toilet Paper for 2022 Benefit

 —  —

The Duncan Showroom, 131 Station Street, Duncan BC

We are that time of year once again when we want to remind as many as possible that the simple commodity that we are so accustomed to, toilet paper, is not always that readily available to certain low income peoples. Imagine having to decide if its monies spent on toilet paper over food in a household with children. Situations such as this create much stress, something not needed by someone down on their luck, especially going into the new year where most of us look forward to a new and prosperous upcoming time of it.

Various local musicians are willing to join us in putting together a ‘telethon’ style event where people can tune in on line and donate financially, just like the days of Monte Hall’s momentous fund raising benefits. Or you can bring packages of TP to the Showroom and be part of the live audience on the day of. Those monies received will buy bulk TP and be delivered to the food bank for distribution in the beginning of the New Year. You know, letting peeps truly feel like they have their ‘shit ‘together going into 2022
