Welcome to

 

 YES! 
AS OF MAY 1st  2015
WE HAVE BEEN OPEN FOR A FULL YEAR 

 

the
new

Duncan Showroom
133 Station Street - upstairs 
(24 to be exact, yes 24 stairs to a musical heaven)

  

  Our hearts still lies in the attentive audience experience.
 We have provided that for the Canadian music scene for over 11 years,
becoming revered for providing one of the nation's finest showcase venues.

  We do believe we had and will continue to have a positive effect
on live entertainment production standards
as we do trust our endeavours are appreciated
by our audiences and performers alike.
 

 
   Once again serendipitous synchronicity stepped in and allowed us to manifest our latest musical venture in 2014, the new Duncan Showroom, located in the heart of downtown Duncan, upstairs at 133 Station Street- (the old Phad Thai / Funky Bubble / Emerald Palace and once even a pool hall.)
   The word is out, it has the the makings of an even more special space than the Duncan Garage location. Visually it feels more open, yet maintaining that same intimacy with the  'all seats face the stage ' attention to detail we are known for. The sound is said to be even better
, if possible, thanks in a great part to Tim, the latest edition of the Duncan Showroom crew, former owner/operator/janitor from the late Lay Back Lounge in Harrison Hot Springs, his wealth of knowledge, his bright shining attitude and his desire to think outside the box are a welcome addition...

  We are going to have fun and trust we will see most of you
and remember

 Longevity John’s Finger Snappin’ Toe Tappin’ Money Back Guarantee…

 …if you do not like the music within the first ½ hour of the performance, your money will gladly be refunded  BUT…
should I or any of my spotters take note that you were seen snapping your fingers, tapping your toes
or making any of those absurd air band facial contortions…
this guarantee becomes null and void…thank you

Lindsay Ferguson

the new Duncan Showroom, 133 Station Street, Duncan BC

 

Born in Bermuda, raised in Prince Edward County, Ontario and now living between Bern Switzerland and Wakefield, Quebec, Canada, Lindsay Ferguson is a touring Canadian musician who plays with eclectic and captivating melodies.Taught as an opera singer in her teens (even placing Gold in the Rotary Music Festival) she would see that classical music was only an introduction into her musical sphere. Buying her first guitar in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada, Lindsay would take to Open Stages, catching her first break at the Legendary Fat Cat on George Street. Later, she would record her first album "Sound." in 2007 in Ottawa Ontario, with Producer Dave Draves. It was chosen as the best "Folk Roots" album of 2008 in Ottawa and would gain her attention across Canada by various radio and television stations. Awarded a Song-Writing grant by Canada Council for the Arts soon after, Lindsay would win enough money in Newcap Radios "Big Money Shot" contest, to record her second full length album "Monkeys Under Stars" produced by Dean Watson. She was voted "Best Singer & Song-writer" in Wakefield Quebec in 2012 and her song "Lose My Grip" was nominated for the Colleen Peterson Song-Writing Award, as well as placing her as a finalist for the New Song Music Contest, 2012. Fast forward through a multitude of stages, both dimly and brightly lit, hours of writing, singing, booking and carting gear, and she is now touring Canada promoting her new CD 'Chameleon' http://www.lindsayferguson.com/
