Cowichan's Musical Community Centre

Duncan Showroom
131 Station Street

located in the heart of downtown Duncan

'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 18 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. 



for those of you who either can't make it to the event cause of illness or family emergencies or you don't live in our immediate  area

we 'live' stream all of our concerts to youtube and facebook


(if you are local and watching from home, sitting in the chair of your choice, wearing the clothes of your choice, drinking the beverage of your choice, possibly even inhaling the fresh air of your choice and all for 'free', why not donate the ticket price or parts thereof so we can continue this 'free' to you service)

one way to support the Showroom experience is to view and possibly buy a photo book of past performers

'Pico and the Golden Lagoon' is an enchanting adventure story about courage, new friendships, and the wonders of nature. Pico is a world traveler who flies around in a yellow bi-plane. On her adventures, she is introduced to new eco ideas through the characters in the stories. Pico is in the middle of a mail run when all of a sudden her plane runs out of fuel and she is forced to make a crash landing on a nearby island. Here she meets David, a marooned naturalist, who shows her the charms of the island. Pico meets many wonderful characters including Lou a dragon who lives in a cave at the edge of the lagoon. Does Lou guard the solution to Pico’s empty fuel tank? How will the story unfold? Created from re-purposed and recycled materials, using puppetry, live music, and storytelling. Ages 4+
