December packed with talent at the Showroom

There’s a vast variety of entertainment coming your way in December at the Duncan Showroom.

Here are just a few of the upcoming shows: On Friday, Dec. 5, Katrina Kadoski returns to Duncan with her award winning multi-media play, Cougar Annie Tales, about the life of an iconic Vancouver Island frontierswoman. A hit at the 2012 Victoria Fringe Festival, she has toured this production across B.C. and it’s always a hit in Duncan. Tickets are $15 in advance or $18 at door and the show starts at 8 p.m. both nights.

On Sunday, Dec. 14, the Showroom will be hopping with two shows.

At 2 p.m., it’s time for Mary’s Annual Xmas Recital featuring all of Mary Eagan’s vocal students in a holiday showcase. Ten dollars at the door gets you in.

Later, at 8 p.m. that same day, Valley fave David Gogo stops by with his acoustic show. It’s Gogo heard over the back fence, Delta style. Tickets are $20 in advance.

On Thursday, Dec. 18, starting at 8 p.m. you may be ready for a change of fare. Come on in and hear Rodrigo Figueroa play some acoustic Latin guitar from Chile, combining his rock influences with his traditional musical roots. Tickets are $15 in advance or $18 at the door.

With Christmas creeping up, on Friday, Dec. 19, David Vest, the king of boogie woogie piano, is in for an 8 p.m. show. This Maple Blues Award winner is another fan favourite. Tickets are $20 at the door.

And, of course, on Sunday, Dec. 21 from 3 p.m. till 11 p.m. (or so) Longevity John Falkner and pals roll out the Duncan Showroom Xmas Showcase. Various local musicians come play three or four songs (some six or seven) to celebrate the season as community while collecting food and money for the food bank as well. A donation of $10 at the door is suggested.

Finally, on Christmas Eve, Wednesday, Dec. 24 starting at 9 p.m. it’s time for the Xmas Eve Jam/Movies night.

"We open the doors so as to spend time together with those that feel a touch lonely, by donation," says Longevity John.
