Welcome to

 

 YES!
WE ARE OPEN

 as of May 1st 2014

the
new

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

  

   My heart still lies in the attentive audience experience.
 We have provided that for the Canadian music scene for over 10 years,
becoming revered as 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 has stepped in and allowed us to manifest our latest musical venture, 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 out is it has the the makings of an even more special space than our last one. 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

Roy Forbes

the new Duncan Showroom, 133 Station Street, Duncan BC

 

For over forty years now, Roy Forbes has been a prominent and critically acclaimed artist who has made enduring artistic contributions to the Canadian music scene as a performer, recording artist, songwriter, producer and broadcaster.

From his solo recordings that began with the 1975 album “Kid Full of Dreams” to his collaborations in UHF, to his work hosting CKUA and CBC programs, Forbes has proven to be an inspired artist who has never lost touch with the magic of music.

Roy's long awaited new album is finally ready for release. “Strikin' Matches - LIVE!” was recorded at several of Roy's solo shows between 2011 and 2013.

Superb guitar-vocal renderings of material originally presented on “Crazy Old Moon”, “The Human Kind”, and the UHF discs, are seasoned with an essential live take of Love Turns To Ice, as well as About My Broken Heart, first presented on the acclaimed “Some Tunes For That Mother of Mine” in 2006.

The entire combination makes for a most welcome live set from this one-of-a-kind artist who has handed us so many timeless, inspired and beautifully crafted tunes over the past four decades. Roy's gifted engineer Dave Meszaros mixed these songs to a point where listeners will feel like they’ve paid for the best seat in the house.

it has been 2 years since he was last in the valley, touring a new album brings him back...a do not miss concert
