Location: Olympic Plaza - Whistler Village
Whistler Presents is a FREE outdoor concert series at the new Olympic Plaza. Colin James is the featured act with Gonch Messiah opening the evening's musical entertainment.
Colin James rocks the blues like no other Canadian artist. His musical roots hint of Praries beginnings with some jazz, a lot of rock, folk and even a dash of punk. Colin (image right) has studied the greats including Ry Cooder, Otish Rush, Albert King, Junior Wells, Buddy Guy and the incredible Steve Ray Vaughn... just to name a few.
Some of his most popular hits includes "Voodoo Thing" and "Five Long Years" and he'll be rockin' out these and a lot more including tunes from his most recent release "National Steel" at the Whistler Presents concert on Saturday August 13.
Gonch Messiah are billed as one of Vancouver's premier FUNK bands. Think funky rythm guitar, congas, horns and maybe a little hacky sack and tiedye t-shirts thrown in. Looking for fun? Gonch Messiah put the fun in FUNK!
