River Rock Casino guitar flash mob grand opening.
Recently I had the pleasure to be invited to participate in the grand opening of the Hard Rock Casino. Myself and 50 plus guitar players were backstage ready to storm the stage in a flash mob guitar frenzy!.. Instead of the traditional ribbon cutting, guitars were smashed. A leopard-print outfit once worn by Shania Twain, Elvis’s wardrove and a guitar on loan from Big Sugar’s Gordie Johnson are among the Canadian memorabilia on display when the newly branded Hard Rock Casino Vancouver officially opened its doors.
During the event I had the pleasure to share the pleasure to share the stage with musician pals from Coco Jafro band, we shared lots of laughter and traded guitar licks, of course, all backstage while the invited guests and VIP’s walked the red carpet as one of the guitar player crank out riff suspended form the ceiling. Guests were entertained with fireworks and then two opening night concerts featuring Headly and 54-40.
Santa Lucia LFR featuring singer-songwriter Celina Drysdale Sat Jan 25th @ Joe’s Apt.
One of the most fun things about going out to a gig is finding new music that you didn’t know existed that you really like. Today’s recommendation comes from one of the last gigs I went to back at the end of last summer where I discovered Celina Drysldale-Hernandez. Anyhow, I have the pleasure to sit down with Celina recently which I was rather lucky and jam a few songs with her. So what can I tell you? Love her voice, I’m a sucker for strings and guitars together, a real sucker – there’s something deeply entrancing about the two sounds together.
Her development its coming along just nicely with much progress to make but with a clearly defined musical statement of intent not just because I say so, but because the music is in its own right pretty interesting. Align with that some very well written lyrics and you get a potentially winning formula.
She is opening for Santa Lucia LFR this Saturday at Joè’s Apt, Celina starts at 8pm don`t miss out this great opportunity to experience her amazing voice and song writing talent.
