Gord Bamford Honky Tonk & Dive Bar Tour

Gord Bamford has been hitting bars all across Canada on his Honky Tonk & Dive Bar Tour with Jojo Mason and Jade Eagleson. It was Friday night when these guys rolled into Barrie and the famous question Is It Friday Yet? Well it was answered with a resounding YES! It was time to pop a top and hang out with the rowdy crowd! It was a sold out show at Mavericks Music Hall, the energy was high and everyone was ready for a good time!
It was very exciting for Jade Eagleson to be added to Gord’s tour. This has been Jade’s first official tour and he fit the opening role perfectly! Jade was Boots and Hearts emerging showcase winner in 2017. This year he was part of the big Coors Banquet kick-off Party, so he is no stranger on how to get a crowd fired up! Jade has had a lot of success with his hit Got Your Name On It and we are looking forward to more from him!
Gord no stranger to a sold out show was ready for the Friday night crowd and he brought it in a big way! We’ve caught Gord quite a few times now and this by far was one of the best shows we’ve seen from Gord! It might have been the addition of the rowdy Friday night crowd, the dive bar atmosphere or even the fact that he brought out some guests during his set, but this was seriously a high energy fun show! Jojo joined Gord on stage, doing things a little differently. So instead of having Jojo play before his set, mixing things up he inserted him right into his own set which made for a lot of fun! They even sang together Groovin’ With You and I could have definitely grooved with these guys all night long! Jojo played some his own hits for us including his latest Future. Jojo has so much energy and has so much fun with a crowd it was great to see him on this very special tour and the two of them made quite the dynamic duo! So much fun! Gord had another very special guest join him on stage, inviting out Danielle Bourjeaurd. They have a new single out Bigger Glass and I’m sure it’s going to be a hit! Danielle has incredible range and such beautiful vocals! Even treating us to an amazing Janis Joplin cover! I was so impressed with her performance and I am already looking forward to another chance to catch her live. Another something a little extra special that night, was Gord brought out his tour manager Bill for a song. I was blown away with Bill’s vocals and guitar skills too! I was lucky enough to see him after their show and found out he use to be in a band. Well If he ever decided to get a band going again, I am sure he could have quite the success in country! Gord has been rolling with his band for quite sometime now and you can tell they’ve done this a time or two together. They have great chemistry and look like they truly enjoy their time on stage together! I have to also give a shout out to Lisa Dodd who also got a chance to sing Pasadena with Gord and she too has killer vocals, but also she is a badass bass player, one of the best in the biz! Gord closed out the night fittingly with his hit song that is behind the whole tour, Dive Bar. It was a great way to cap off such a fun and energetic night!
