Well it’s BVJ time again and even time I am awash with fond memories of the biggest festival in western Canada. Not only all the great times and friends I have made over the years but also how my career as an artist started really to grow there. When I was 18 I went to BVJ for the first time and saw the Mavericks, Jim Witter, and Danny Hooper. I actually jumped the stage and sang with Danny for a song and after that I vowed I would not return till I was performing there myself. Two years later I returned with my first band performing at the Beer Gardens Stage and began making a name for myself on the festival scene thanks to the Big Valley Jamboree. Over the years I have performed kick off parties, beer gardens, Big Valley Christmas Parties, Main Stage with the Road Hammers, and now as the returning host of the Song Writers Stage. Over the years This festival has begun to feel more and more like family to me. And this year will be the first year for my kids as we get set to bring the whole family to experience the Big Valley love. So Thx BVJ for all the years of love and support and I hope to see ya’ll there again this year!
