ALBUM RELEASE SHOW AT THE FOX CABARET 

The album release at the Fox Cabaret was a massive success. Thanks to everyone who came out to support us. You guys were loud, attentive and amazing. A big shout out to the Fox and our sound tech Q! Excellent work!

COUPLE TOUR PHOTOS 

It's been a couple of weeks, but we had a helluva good time playing up in Kelowna at Doc Willoughby's and Nelson at the Royal. Here's some proof:

On the way to Kelowna!

Dinghy Dock show with Daniel Wesley 

Had an awesome time playing a sold out Dinghy Dock Pub on Protection Island in Nanaimo with my buddy Daniel Wesley this weekend. My old man came over on the ferry with me and it was great to catch up with him and DW. Best moments were when I swore I heard someone in the crowd singing the backups for my Tom Petty cover, but it was actually just Daniel warming up outside, ripping my Christmas tune even though I hadn't played it in a year and Dan's impression of my dad (his high school guitar teacher): "Boys, you can play all the rock n roll you want, but you gotta have a ballad. The girls love the ballads." It was spot on. 

Thanks to everyone who came out to support and to Andrew from Got Pop for putting on a great show. More announcements to come soon!

 

Biltmore Video 

Big thanks to everyone who came out to the Biltmore on Friday night! We had an amazing time and raised a whole thwack of cash for the Overdose Prevention Society (full total TBA). In the meantime, check out a clip from the show! 

BIG JA CONCERT ANNOUNCEMENT 

CONCERT ANNOUNCEMENT 

I'll be playing with the full band live at The Biltmore Cabaret with the amazing Skyote on Friday, March 24th. 

Proceeds from this show will go to support the fight against the opioid overdose crisis affecting our friends, family and neighbours across Metro Vancouver. Too many people have died from what is a real and deadly epidemic. The new numbers will be out next week and the year will almost certainly end with more than 800 people having died. That number is staggering and more needs to be done. This will be our small way of trying to help out. So, let's try to address this mega-serious issue by having a bit of fun, a few beers and some rock 'n roll. Come on out and support a good and pressing cause!

JA LIVE at Persephone Brewing Co. on the Sunshine Coast 

Josh and I had an awesome time playing the Persephone Brewing Company on the Sunshine Coast this past Sunday. It was raining like crazy, but the place was packed with beer drinkers of all ages as well as a bunch of awesome kids. Really outstanding crowd...standing room only for pretty much the entire set. Thanks to my buddy Angie who came out despite being 38 weeks pregnant and to everyone who took it in. We neglected to get a live shot, but here are a couple from the trip. Note to selves: reserve ferry spots on the Sunday of a long weekend. We waited 5.5 hours to get on the boat! All in good fun though.

Slickity Jim's LIVE featuring JDKK 


Josh and I had an outstanding show down at Slickity Jim's. Love the speakeasy feel of the back room. It only holds about 30-35, but we packed 40+ in there. Thanks so much to everyone for cramming in and listening so intently. We hear there isn't going to be live music at Slickity's much longer, which is a cryin' shame because it's a great room. Bittersweet to be one of the last few to play it.
