The Gabriola Lions Club presents its 23rd Annual Concert-on-the-Green featuring Rod and the Mods, Canada's #1 tribute to ROD STEWART.
Rod & The Mods is absolutely the most realistic Rod Stewart show next to seeing Rod himself. Brent Stewart offers one of the most authentic Rod Stewart tributes you will ever see. From the stylish suits and all the signature stage moves to a voice that’s so close you’ll swear it’s Rod, Brent Stewart sets a new high standard for Rod Stewart tributes. Brent’s voice is so amazingly similar to Rod’s that he has actually been hired to sing on recording sessions for producers and songwriters who are pitching their songs to Rod. No one other than Rod himself sounds this close. When not performing as Rod Stewart, Brent tours the world playing lead guitar for Rock’n’Roll Hall of Famer Randy Bachman.
Endorsed by fans including Loverboy's Mike Reno, Randy Bachman, Country Star Patricia Conroy, and Alan Frew of Glass Tiger, it was this very support from fellow musicians that encouraged Brent to pay an ultimate tribute to Rod Stewart.
Vancouver’s Reid Jamieson is a vocal powerhouse committed to making music that moves us. Known for regular appearances on CBC’s Vinyl Café, to recording with Cowboy Junkies, they shine with compelling originals, plus killer covers of everything from 50s era gold to their latest tribute to Leonard Cohen. A classic introvert/extrovert combo, Reid performs with his saucy wife and long-time song-writing partner Carolyn Victoria Mill. Together they have won the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and wrote their way into the Vancouver Folk Festival by winning their Pickin’ a Folk Star Contest. Their new all original album, recorded in Ireland with producer Kieran Kennedy (Maria Doyle Kennedy), is titled ‘Me Daza’ which is Cork slang for ‘most excellent’ – tho the direct translation is ‘I’m dying’ – but aren’t we all? There is nothing traditional about this record, or this dynamic duo. You won’t want to miss what they do next!
