    Celebrate the longest hump day of the year with one of Vancouver's best singer-songwriters and the talented musicians in his circle. Experience a mix of original folk rock and cover tunes, great vocals and hypnotic guitar licks; new songs from the band's upcoming release and favorites from Rick's first three albums. Enjoy a meal in the comfort of this friendly, licensed dining lounge. Joining Rick Parnell's band for the first time will be local actress, singer and drummer Jenn Kobelt, who appeared in the band's music video "Next Time Around". Thrilled to have Jason Knapp open the evening with songs from his recent solo release "In January", hailed as "honest and surreal".

Q: I see your guitar is a six. Well I was wrong in saying it was a 12. It has an amazing sound.
A: Thanks Lester, Hart and I both use Stonebridge guitars to record the acoustic parts. They feel and sound amazing. Studio 403 also uses a multiple mic technique to capture all of the sound.
