Calgary was probably one of the more memorable stops on the journey. It was fraught with challenges.
First off, when we got to Epcor Centre and the Motel, a performance space at the notorious One Yellow Rabbit theatre Company to discover that a heavy metal band had booked the big theatre across the hall for a concert on the same night!
We were quite worried that we'd be drowned out, but all told, it wasn't a big problem.
As a matter of fact, one of the patrons actually said that they were too engrossed in the plays to notice the noise!
The venue manager felt bad about the mix up and did his best to smooth things out. He gave us the night for free and let us add a second performance on Sunday without charging us extra.
Had a great last show at the Northern Light Theatre in Edmonton then decided to go out on the town to celebrate.
Roger had already scoped out a blues bar on Whyte Avenue, "Blues on Whyte". As it happened, another Vancouverite, Russell Jackson
and his band (which included the legendary Selwyn Cooper
- former player for BB King) were playing.
Roger introduced Russell to Michelle and she had a chance to get on stage for a couple of numbers! A great time was had by all! Watch the video below:
Despite getting back to the university close to 3am we managed to be on the road to Calgary at a respectable hour.
