Holiday Special offers 4 in 1 at Cowichan Theatre

The Jon and Roy Holiday Special featuring four acts in one concert comes to the big stage at the Cowichan Theatre on Friday, Dec 12. "Jon and Roy have quite the following," acting theatre publicist Nikki Nilsson said. "Their holiday specials began in Victoria in 2008 and they’ve only skipped one year in this annual tradition that continually sells out in Victoria." Their musical guests are Vince Vaccaro, Carmanah and Luca Fogale.

Jon and Roy are singer-guitarist Jon Middleton and drummer Roy Vizer.

Neither can recall exactly when or where they started playing music together, but they distinctly remember it was very soon after meeting.

The rest is history. Middleton’s unique voice, his expressive guitar playing and Vizer’s inventive percussion, meshed perfectly and more than a decade and four critically-acclaimed roots albums later, the duo of Jon and Roy rolls on the good times.

Vince Vaccaro, who has lots of Cowichan fans, has shared stages with many fine artists including Mumford Sons, Weezer, Sam Roberts, The Sheepdogs, Bedouin Soundclash, Matthew Good, 54-40, Kim Churchill, and Jon Roy.

Tickets are $28 each. Get them online at cowichantheatre.ca or call the Cowichan Ticket Centre at 250-748-7529 to reserve for this fun holiday performance.
