one of america's finest guitar pickin', song writin', storytellin' singers that just happens to be on the west coast and will be performing here at the Showroom, again....yes again, has been a few visits where we missed the opportunity but not this time...

'Nashville-based singer/songwriter Mark Stuart has played with country and roots-rock groups like the Long Gone Daddies and Steve Earle's Dukes. While playing with that group he met his future wife, Stacey Earle. After the couple married in 1994, Stuart also became Stacey's accompanist on her albums and tours. His album Songs From A Corner Stage was released in 1999 on Steve Earle's E-Squared label.'

personally very excited about this concert

Sweetdreams

Duncan Showroom, 131 Station Street, Duncan BC

from Nanaimo, they performed at the 39 Days of July this year and was very impressed and so here they are at the Showroom "The band, comprised of Matt Chesterfield, Jason Felker, Nick Begg, Kendall Patrick, and Raven Woods, offers a self-described nostalgic indie rock sound that is both uplifting and chill, perfect for sitting in a pub or a summer road trip. "

I am a big Kendall Patrick fan and anything she is involved in must be spectacular and fun to do....
