Oh goodness, I was pumped when Gord Bamford added a Halifax show to his Honkytonk & Dive Bar Tour! Yes, it is the night before flying out early Saturday morning for vacation…but who needs sleep when Gord, JoJo and Jade are in the city!
This tour, Gord wanted to do small venues, bars, etc to stay true to where it all started for him. I thought that was fantastic, two of our team members covered his shows in Lethbridge and Port Hawkesbury and couldn’t say enough about how great the show was.
It wasn’t your same typical line up. Gord performed a few songs and had JoJo, Jade and Danielle perform throughout the show. They all performed a song with him as well. Gord had local country singer TJ King open the show. TJ’s set was great, he performed a few covers along with a couple songs he wrote but hasn’t released yet. The crowd loved them.
Their show was SOLD OUT tonight. Gord always puts on an incredible performance, if it is even possible he gets better every time we see him.
As always, I personally love how Gord introduces his band, then each one of them sings a little bit of a song of their choice! We can’t wait till they roll into Halifax again… hopefully in the not so distant future.
