Music For Big Kids

DANIEL WESLEY has born right here in the Peace Arch Hospital. In his early 20's he moved over to the Brookswood district of Langley and started writing songs. He was soon back in White Rock @ Turtle Recording Studio recording his two debut CDS. The second album spawned his breakout radio song, OOH AAH. The song was chosen by CFOX radio as part of it's local homegrown "SEEDS" album. And as they say the rest is history.


DANIEL and his young family now call Roberts Creek home on the Sunshine Coast. We caught up with Daniel in cyberspace this week to find out how things are going, and what to expect Thursday evening when he rolls back into town to rock The Rock at the free concert on East Beach.


Daniel, it will be two years since you were on the beach for a show in your old hometown of White Rock. What have you been up for the past two years?

I went back to school and got my electrical ticket. I’ve been working full-time as an electrician as well as doing music. actually the day of the show will be my first day of being a musician only again. I found it difficult to juggle the two jobs and need to get back to the rock and roll.

You have a young family. How old are the kids now?

We moved to Roberts creek last summer and have been living life to the fullest.
Finn is 5 and Shea is just turning 3

Have you been writing new material?

Yes we have recorded a bunch. But I have found it difficult to work full time be a dad and do music full time as well. So taking the rest of the summer to finish writing some songs I have as well as working on new ones.

Are there plans for a new album?

Absolutely. The only reason why there has been a delay in new material is because of the juggle of the jobs. But now I’m doing music full time we should see new material by next year.

Since your last visit you released a double CD of your last performance at the legendary Commodore Ballroom. How was that experience?

Magical. It was really a dream come true. I have always loved live albums and I’m really happy with how it came out. We had to leave some songs that I love off because I made a few mistakes live. But that’s the nature of the beast. It’s 25 songs. One side acoustic Ish and the other side full on dance mode. My kids always want it on in the car. So for better of worse I listen to it a lot.

Any really special gigs for you since we last heard and saw you?

I just played a few solo gigs in Gibson’s on the Sunshine Coast that were terrific. I live there now and to see some people I have met that I am happy to call friends was really special. As well as having my wife and my sister who lives over there. I love playing solo too. It’s much harder but I’m able to play songs a different way which is very refreshing.

Who will be in your band when you roll into THE ROCK Thursday?

Lucky enough to play with these guys. They lay the vibe heavy.

Darren Parris on bass for a decade
Mike Kenney on keys and guitars for 8 years n
Flavio cirrilio on drums who has been playing the skins with me for a year or so. He is a beast
Stu Aspinall on tour manager and tambourine background vocals Permanent.

Any other shows locally over the summer and or into the early Fall if folks see you for the first time Thursday?

We will be announcing a few shows in the Vancouver area just after this show. It’s a surprise. Sorry can’t tell
Xoxoxo

KAL DAVID & LAURI BONO
CA$47.00
Friday July 20, 2018
Saturday July 21, 2018

Doors 6:00 pm | Music 7:00 pm - EACH NIGHT
Doors 8:45 pm | Music 9:15 pm - EACH NIGHT

To say that Kal David is just a great Blues guitarist would be a shame, although he is that, indeed. Other
Blues guitarists don't come close to his wide range of styles, the colors on his palette. Kal David is a fine
and experienced guitarist who can bring you to your knees with his soulfulness, but don't miss his depth.
Kal David is a singer. A true vocalist, a professional with way above vocal chops. His gritty, yet polished
vocals take you on an emotion filled ride. The world is about to wake up to a true living legend of music.

Miss Lauri Bono, music partner of Kal David for many years, is a fully featured member of the band. She
is an amazing and dynamic female vocalist. With Lauri, less is always more. Miss Bono sings in a way that
she can sound like soft velvet or turn on the gravel and guts and then pull you right back into another
soft passage. It a gift that she has chosen to share with Kal David as they travel the globe making
records, playing concerts and major VIP events.

There is something so special about the chemistry between these two artists. Although each can stand
alone, they are a team. They work synergistically for the greater good of the performance or the
complete record. There is no comparing who is better than the other, they exist because of and for each
other......Perfect Harmony!!
