Bozzini’s releases fall concert lineup in Chilliwack

Kicking off the 2017 fall concert series at Bozzini’s is Jon Brooks on Oct. 8 in Chilliwack

Bozzini’s fall 2017 concert lineup features a diverse collection of world class artists in the most intimate of venues.

Kicking it off on Oct. 8 at Bozzini’s Upstairs is Ontario-based Jon Brooks who may well be Canada’s most underrated singer-songwriter despite numerous accolades including being a four-time nominee for English Songwriter of the Year (2007/2009/2012/2015) from the Canadian Folk Music awards and only the fourth Canadian since 1975 to win the prestigious Kerrville (Texas) Folk Festival New Folk Award.

He is, in fact, the perfect artist for a crisp autumn evening with songs that offer us something greater than warning; they offer us the possibility of spiritual renewal, greater justice, love, and healing with a few murder ballads thrown in. Brooks will be accompanied by Neil Cruickshank (Brickhouse).

Little Miss Higgins returns to Bozzini’s after a nine-year absence on Oct. 19 with her wonderful collection of western blues backed by her crackerjack of a band, the Winnipeg 5 which includes Sean Burns.

From the Great Northern Plains of Western Canada, Little Miss Higgins struts and serenades her way, guitar in hand, lips blazoned red, onto any stage. As a songwriter and musician, she has been influenced by a range of artists like Memphis Minnie, Billy Holiday, Big Bill Broonzy, Bessie Smith, Django Reinhardt, Patsy Cline, Ella Fitzgerald, Joni Mitchell, Dolly Parton, Maria Muldaur, to Canadian roots and blues musicians like Big Dave McLean, Tim Williams, Sue Foley.

As the son of Guess Who/Bachman-Turner Overdrive guitarist Randy Bachman, Canadian-born pop singer/songwriter Tal Bachman was raised in a musical environment, absorbing the breadth of his father’s enormous record collection and teaching himself to play guitar.

A demo tape helped him secure a deal with Columbia Records, and the songwriter issued his self-titled debut in 1999. “She’s So High” became an international Top Ten hit the following year. Bachman performs two intimate, (mostly) acoustic shows (early and late performances) on Saturday, Nov. 18.

Closing out the year will be their Christmas Holiday Show featuring Twin Kennedy (formerly the Kennedy Twins) who have performed multiple sold-out shows in Chilliwack.

Their musical bond is as strong as their small town roots. Twin Kennedy, comprised of West Coast identical twin sisters Carli and Julie Kennedy, have been making music together since they could talk.

Born and raised in the small town of Powell River, Twin Kennedy grew up perfecting their sibling harmonies and dynamic live performances, while making their name known throughout their small community as a family band. Twin Kennedy will be performing two shows on Dec. 16.

Ticket prices range from $16 to $25 and can be purchased in advance at Bozzini’s, or charge over the phone at 604-792-0744. Further details at www.bozzinisrestaurant.ca.
