Thursday, Jan. 14 at 8 p.m. at the downstairs Duncan Showroom, it’s Vince Vaccaro.

He’s returning for the new Showroom experience, with a special guest, Sam Weber.

He may have been born in Montreal, but Vaccaro has deep roots in Cowichan too.

His music reflects a deep connection with the coast and the surrounding environment, and, especially since the death of his father, the performer is looking to appreciate what’s near and dear.

Whether backed by his band of roots rockers, or performing solo acoustic, Vaccaro’s offerings are always honest, as his fans know.

“The songs are about life, they’re about all the colours that exist out there. I’m experiencing the world around me and writing about it. My loves and passions are for the ocean, for the beauty of this place we live in, for so many things…its hard to sum it up,” he says on his blog.

Vaccaro has appeared at such Island festivals as Rock of the Woods and Rock the Shores and shared stages with many great Canadian and international artists including Mumford & Sons, Temper Trap, Matt Mays, Weezer, Sam Roberts, City & Colour, The Sheepdogs, Bedouin Soundclash, Matthew Good, Jets Overhead, 54-40, Kim Churchill, Jon & Roy, Current Swell, and many others.

Tickets are $20 each. Get them through www.showroomproductions.ca

In case you’ve never attended an event at the Showroom before, be aware that no alcohol is served. “It is about the music, not drinking with musical background,” says owner Longevity John Falkner.
