vote

102.7 The Peak’s 2013 Peak Performance Project (PPP) has entered the voting phase. This is your chance to vote for your favourite artist and help them win 102.7 thousand dollars towards their music careers. This year’s top 20 is packed with talented musicians and bands and I’m going to let you in on WFLBC’s top 3!

In no particular order (but lets be honest, we all know I voted for Bodhi) here are my top 3 picks for the 2013 PPP. Surrey BC’s own Good For Grapes are competing for the first time. They have a great sound and have a bright future ahead of them. Here’s their latest video “Renminbi Tips”

Rolla Olak, originally from Vancouver Island, Is in the PPP for the first time as well. He has a great folk vibe and his song “Magic Spell” is on heavy rotation at the WFLBC offices, check it out.

Bodhi Jones, the man, the myth, the legend, is competing in his 3rd PPP. Originally from Salt Spring Island Bodhi is a tallented singer/songwriter with a deep catalogue of original music. Check out one of my favourite tracks off  “Bones”, Bodhi’s latest album. “Suitcase Packed”

VOTE NOW! Voting closes at 5pm PST on October 25th.

Bodhi Jones is back. The last time we had a new album from this talented local singer/songwriter was back in 2010 with “Where Does The Time Go”, which I still listen to often.

I first met Bodhi in 2011 when I was organizing Andrewpalooza to raise money for a friend dealing with Multiple Sclerosis. I asked Bodhi if he wanted to play at the Red Room for the event and he immediately said yes, he helped secure other talent and even helped persuade the lovely Carmen Cruz to host. Bodhi is a great guy, truly my brother from another mother. Here’s the video for the first single off Bones – Drink Like the World’s Gonna End.

Head over to peakperformanceproject.com and check out Bodhi’s page. Make sure The Peak knows WE LOVE BODHI!

Bones is available on iTunes and you can catch Bodhi live at St. James Hall on September 6th for the official Bones release party, get your tickets HERE.

Surrey Canada Day 2012 in pictures with video!

Surrey put on quite the show for Canada day. There were food trucks, a full scale model of a potential LRT train on display that could be hitting our streets, great music and tons of things for people of all ages to enjoy! My highlights were the entire Peak Performance Stage show with 20 great YVR bands pumping out amazing music (Redgy Blackout is going to win…), The LRT display and the main stage featuring local music phenom Hannah Georgas and Canadian rock music icons Sam Roberts Band.

Sorry about the mid song spin-o-rama, it’s a little fast…(barf)

I had an amazing time with my family and friends, this event was a huge success and really helped reinforce why I put all of this time into promoting Surrey. I’m already looking forward to next year! Check out the picture of the huge crowd watching Sam Roberts!
