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
