Canada’s legendary CHILLIWACK rose like a phoenix from the ashes of psychedelia in 1969. The band released 12 albums over a period of 15 years, producing numerous Canadian and international hits including “Lonesome Mary”, “Fly At Night” and “California Girl” in the 70’s plus “My Girl (gone gone gone)” and “Whatcha Gonna Do” in the 80’s. Other hits include “Looking at a Baby” which quickly rose to number three in Canada, the twenty minute major opus “What Love: Suite” - a huge cult classic – onward to “Raino”, “Crazy Talk”, “Fly at Night”, “Baby Blue” and “California Girl”. All this work led to 31 hit singles, 16 of them Top 40, 15 gold and platinum certifications, a host of awards, high profile TV appearances and coliseum concert tours.
Chilliwack’s reputation for consistently powerful shows continues, with the live CD There and Back still winning over new fans and delighting long time ones. Bill Henderson and the band are rocking like never before. Hearing today’s revitalized Chilliwack is like hearing those songs for the first time…all over again.

Victoria’s JESSE ROPER is magnetic. With the genuine quality and charisma of his versatile blues-rooted soul, rock and country funk, he delivers an explosive live show as approachable as his charm. With the critically acclaimed album Son of John, “Yukon Girl” and “Hail Mary”, under his belt, Roper released his highly anticipated sophomore Red Bird, “The Hurricane’s Eye” and “Fool in Love”, in 2015. The nostalgic may appreciate his throwback vibe akin to Stevie Ray Vaughan and vintage Texas blues, however, JESSE ROPER 's music remains current. His youthful energy captivates audiences while the organic rawness of his vocals and guitar shatter any stereotype of the blues musician.
Roper's career is quickly gaining momentum. As he becomes a staple on modern rock radio, the wheels on Jesse's faithful van keep turning with extensive touring and the success of becoming a major festival draw. JESSE ROPER always delivers the show of his life, whether headlining major festivals for thousands of fans at Sunfest, Rifflandia and Rock the Shores or on the small stage, up close and personal.
