Fri Nov 18th 8pm – Coco Jaffro – There is no other band that moves us like these guys do… original tunes in a driving funk based tradition.

Sun Nov 20th 2pm – Washington & Cook – Maureen Washington and Daniel Cook bring their funkified urban jazz to the Showroom as often as I can get them to.


Sun Nov 20th 8pm – Marianne Girard – acoustic/country/folk from Toronto, this veteran singer/songwriter is now catching her stride and many a folk is taking notic.  Special guest: Lonnie Glass – a fellow Ontarian, recently and happily settled in Victoria… ‘take a cup of Bob Dylan, a pint of Tom Waits and a quart of Leonard Cohen, mix well.  The result is a gravelly voiced, quirky acoustic playing, modern day troubadour.”


Mon Nov 21st – Alex Vissia – singer/songwriter from Stony Plain, AB, she has been performing since the age of 13… nominated for Junos for young up and coming, she is out touring her debut CD ‘A Lot Less Gold’.


Tues Nov 22nd – Dress Rehearsal Tuesday – various musicians drop in and play a few of their new works… others attempt for the first time… all in all it is about community… no fear… no attitudes… just people getting their ‘legs’.  (drum kit and amps in place)


Weds Nov 23rd – Joey Wright – All you acoustic guitar players get your butts down here… on of Canada’s faster and finer guitar pickers, he also writes sensitive, introspective ballads.


Thurs Nov 24th – Nomad / Kinobe  – sufi acoustic guitar meanderings with west African rhythms.


Fri Nov 25th – Ryan McMahon… singer/songwriters from Ladysmith giving up a solo concert before Christmas.

Sun Nov 27th 2pm – Youth Dress Rehearsal – Like your Tuesday night open mic, but for those under 16.
