Smith and Jones take over barn dance

For the past 12 years, Smith and Jones have independently carved out a solid place in the Canadian West Coast country music scene.

For the past 12 years, Smith and Jones have independently carved out a solid place in the Canadian West Coast country music scene. And as far away as Australia.

Their vocal style and artistic sense shows in pretty much everything they do and how they project their music.

Brian Zalo, Craig Alan Mac and Shawn Brown are definitely a strong force and influence for other groups in B.C.

The music, the energy and sound is not to be taken lightly. These guys are pros in every sense of the word and you don’t want to miss what they bring to the big round music table.

Here are just a few comments from some of the top people in the music industry.

“The past 20 years has afforded me the opportunity to work with and hire many talented performers. Smith and Jones set themselves apart from the others. I would not hesitate to hire Smith and Jones for any and all shows we are involved with.” — Don Adams artist/public relations, Active Mountain Entertainment Corp., producers of the Merritt Mountain Music Festival.

“Many things impress me about Smith & Jones. Their stage show is definitely at the top of that list. Brian and Craig complement one another vocally, and the band is always rehearsed and tight. I’m proud to endorse their talent and work ethic.” — Tom McKillip, award-winning producer for Aaron Pritchett and Lisa Brokop.

“Smith & Jones have the magic ingredients for success — excellent songwriting ability, catchy tunes and fine vocals and harmonies. Definitely deserving of airplay.” — Aleta Tulk, 88.7 KIK-FM, Tablelands Country, Mareeba, Australia.

Smith & Jones perform Aug. 11 at a barn dance at the Norwood Equestrian Centre. Doors at 6384 Tsolum Rd. in Courtenay will open at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at South Country Feed, Shar-kare Feeds and Tack-M-Up Stables in the Driftwood Mall.
