For the Lakeside Leader
You asked for more country music – you got it! Stage North Association is bringing Alberta Country Music singer Drew Gregory to town on Saturday January 15. We are pleased to present this great opportunity to get out and enjoy some live Alberta talent right here in Slave Lake.
Drew Gregory was awarded Country Music Alberta’s Male Artist of the Year in 2015 and 2019, and awarded Single of the Year for ‘In A Better Bar’ in 2019.
“The songs of this award-winning Alberta country music sensation are infused with a down home realism, a gritty honesty and vibrant sense of rootedness that comes from years spent working the land as a farmer – an aspect of his life that is deeply connected to his talent as a musician, singer and songwriter.” – www.drewgregorymusic.com.
Gregory has played many concerts and festivals, including the Big Valley Jamboree, Bud Country Fever, Country Thunder and Dauphin Country Fest.
Gregory made his debut appearance on the Nashville North stage during the 2015 Calgary Stampede and has been a staple every year since.
Recently, Stage North Association partnered with the Rotary Club of Slave Lake hosting a very successful Old Fashioned Christmas Coffee House on Dec. 11. The event brought in a $3,145 donation to Santas Anonymous.
A festive evening was had by all who attended. Sponsors West Fraser, Black Tiger Fuels, Whitecap Chevrolet Buick GMC and Cast & Court, as well as the Elks Club and many other volunteers helped make this a great success.
For this Saturday’s show, along with the talents of Drew Gregory, patrons can enjoy pre-ordered country BBQ wings and ribs by Back to Basics catering and as always the Elks Club bar will be open. Stage North Association will follow the province’s COVID-19 Restrictions Exemptions Program, which means: mandatory masks, proof of vaccination/exemption/negative COVID test (within 72 hours) and social distancing practices will be enforced upon entry to and during the show.
Tickets can be purchased online with a credit card, or pay cash at one of our local ticket outlets: The Source, Re/Max, the Rotary Library, Distractions. Prices are: Adult Advance $30, Student/Senior Advance: $25, at the door: $40.
The remaining Stage North shows for this season include: pianist/comedian Sarah Hagen, on February 26; bluegrass band The Slocan Ramblers, on March 13; and lastly, the East Coast musical artists the Ennis Sisters, on April 8.
