Rockin’ blues comes to the Waverley Hotel on June 1 when the Non Prophet Society blows into town.
Non Prophet Society is an original blues rock fusion band based out of Smithers. NPS has been creating a buzz in northwest B.C. since early 2006 performing festivals, pubs, restaurant, roadhouse, weddings in and around the area.
Sweet guitar work, brilliant improvs, and cheeky originals aside, they play until the calluses on on their fingers fall off, or the crowd goes home. In an evening with Non Prophet Society you can expect to hear some catchy new songs and some of you favourite classic rock, blues, and even country hits.
• During his lifelong love affair with the guitar and music in general, James Hay has paid his dues in many rock bands across the Northwest, Lower Mainland, and Vancouver Island regions of B.C.
• Jason Friesen is a transplanted Smithereen, formerly of the Vancouver/Lower Mainland area. Jason plays guitar, bass, and tries to sing. Influences range dramatically from rock, metal, and blues, to country, bluegrass, and swing.
• Gary Miles’ musical background started when he was five, beating the skins off of his older brother’s drum kit. Gary wants you to know that during his extensive travels to Europe and New Zealand, his highlight was playing in a Highland pipe and drum band in Scotland, although he wisely opted to leave the kilt behind.
