Sawbucks Pub Fire

I am sad to report we had a FIRE on April 24th. Thankfully, it was after hours and no one was hurt!

I apologize to our customers for any inconvenience that this may cause you. We miss you already. You are a big part of our lives.

The good news is there isn’t a lot of structural damage, but there is extensive smoke and water damage. The restoration company is on scene.

We do not have a reopen date at this time, but will keep you abreast of the developments.

A special thank you to Surrey Fire Service who acted very quickly to knock down the fire. It could have been so much worse.

Warm regards,

Rod Egerton

Johnny Cash Tribute

David James & Big River create authentic tribute to the Man in Black

Friday, September 18th.

No Cover Charge before 8 PM – $10 After 8

David James and Big River are often described as one of the most authentic Johnny Cash tribute shows touring today. Thousands of fans agree with those reviews, as they routinely sell out shows in venues large and small across Canada and the U.S.

James and his band – Todd Sacerty on bass, Duncan Symonds on guitar and pedal steel, and Colin Stevenson on drums – look and sound like the legacy of the Man in Black, and when they step on stage, they live it. From the way Cash holds his guitar to the way he talks to his audience, the legendary musician lives again when James steps to the mike and says, “Hello – I’m almost Johnny Cash.”

The professionalism of the musicians on and off stage is a testament to the memory of Cash that fans have come to expect from David James and Big River.

The extensive catalogue of songs, from classics like Walk the Line, Get Rhythm and Boy Named Sue, to newer hits like Rusty Cage and Hurt, attracts audiences of young and old alike to relive the music of Johnny Cash.

James has dedicated himself to recreating an authentic tribute to Cash, focusing on not only his rich baritone, but also his mannerisms and his interaction with the crowd, whether it’s an intimate show in a high-end casino or an outdoor festival like the Calgary Stampede or the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) in Vancouver.

“It’s not only about the voice,” James said. “It’s about living and breathing the man – his posture, his mannerisms, his moves and his quirks. I want our audiences to go home feeling like they just observed the man himself.” James is succeeding.

According to Lisa Wilton at the Calgary Sun, “James does his best to look the part – black is the primary colour from his hair down to his shoes – but it’s his uncanny vocal similarity to Cash that is most impressive. Even when he talks, James has the singer’s low rumble down pat.”

The Man in Black might be gone, but David James and Big River are fulfilling the continuing demand for his music and keeping the memory of the legend alive in the hearts and minds of fans everywhere.
