DOUBLE-BILL OF CLASSIC ROCK

PRISM with guest JERRY DOUCETTE

Wednesday, November 10th – Cascades Casino Summit Theatre in Langley

Tickets $29.50 (plus Facility Fee and Service Charges) at Ticketweb.ca and Casino Guest Services

Classic Rock 101 and Rock.It Boy Entertainment are proud to present legendary west coast rockers PRISM with very special guest JERRY DOUCETTE in concert on Wednesday, November 10th in the  Cascades Casino Summit Theatre in Langley.  Tickets are available for $29.50 (plus Facility Fee and Service Charges) at Ticketweb.ca and from Casino Guest Services. “Spaceship Superstar”  “Take Me To The Captain”  “See Forever Eyes” Thirteen albums deep and a lot of years in and PRISM is still rocking them coast to coast in Canada. Started originally in the mid seventies as a project by producer Bruce Fairbairn, PRISM utilized a good portion of the Vancouver groups Seeds of Time and the jazz band Sunshyne, and they released their debut self-titled album on GRT Records in 1977 with a roster that was quite stunning. “Open Soul Surgery”  “Armageddon”  “Take Me Away” The first PRISM line-up included Ron Tabak (vocals),  Lindsay Mitchell (lead guitar, vocals), Tom Lavin (rhythm guitar, vocals – later formed the Powder Blues Band),  John Hall (keyboards), Ab Bryant (bass – later joined Chilliwack and the Headpins), Rodney Higgs (drums, keyboards – real name: Jim Vallance, later went on to form one of the most successful Canadian song writing duos in history with Bryan Adams), Bruce Fairbairn (horns – later went on to be one the industry’s premier producers) and Tom Keenlyside (horns – later went on to the Powder Blues Band).  Bryan Adams co-wrote for the band and sometimes sat in as a session guest on the albums. “Don’t Let Him Know”  “Young and Restless”  “Night to Remember” A roster of amazing musicians has passed through PRISM over the decades, but the things that remain constant are the hit songs and band’s commitment to delivering them in clubs, concerts and festivals with nothing but 100 percent intensity.  Expect nothing but the best from these guys. JERRY DOUCETTE is the big man who gave us the rollicking guitar classic “Mama Let Him Play,” in 1977 from the album of the same name –  a song that ruled the FM airwaves as a flagship for freedom, independence and the right to party your face off eloquently framed with one of the great guitar solos of the time.  That album went platinum and few more good ones followed including The Douce Is Loose (1979).  He continues to deliver slick guitar and powerful songs with dedication and passion and is undeniably one of Canada’s great guitar men.
