Tim Brecht
A classic rock one-man band and a Vancouver favourite

9:00pm | Saturday July 19, 2014

No Cover

Originally from Kelowna, B.C., Tim Brecht moved to Vancouver in 1976 to join the popular rock band “Weather”. In 1980, Tim embarked on a solo career using backing tracks of himself playing the missing live instruments. Tim was one of the first local artists to use this technique. With the advent of computer-controlled synthesizers in the mid-1980′s, Tim put together one of the first one-man synthesizer shows and was a huge hit at Expo 86 in Vancouver. Since then, Tim has performed countless shows at pubs, clubs, and corporate events from Spain and Mexico to the Yukon and back. Tim’s unique blend of state of the art technology, refined musicianship, and comedic timing will have the crowd “dancing on the tables” one minute and “rolling in the aisles” the next.

Reviews

“If you are at all familiar with the local entertainment scene, you’ve probably heard the name Tim Brecht. Tim is a solo musician who has become famous for his unique style, which combines state-of-the-art technology with refined instrumental technique and razor-sharp wit for a great performance that can best be described as “totally fun.”

Paul McCabe

“Tim Brecht combines talent, a wicked sense of fun and technology to please crowds. His guitar can synthesize any instrument, including drums, and he achieves life-like horn sounds by blowing into a black tube called a “breath controller.” When he sings, Brecht utilizes a “pitch transposer” which harmonizes three-part vocals for him. The only drawback with this gadget, Brecht says, is when he forgets the words, the machine does, too. Brecht plays an astonishing variety of music, taking everything he covers and making it uniquely his.”

It’s true Germany and Argentina will contest the 2014 Fifa World Cup final on Sunday in front of an expected TV audience of more than a billion…and 100+ of those sports fans will be in front of our BIG 10′ HD screen — here at the great sports bar and pub in the White Rock and South Surrey BC area.

There will be prizes (lots of them) and all kinds of specials. So join us. This event only happens every fours years and we’ll help you make it great.

The game starts at 12:00pm, but be sure to get here early to get a great seat.

Some would say The Rolling Stones.

Others would say Led Zeppelin.

Or Pink Floyd.

And yet others would say The Beatles.

No matter who you chose, it’s a pretty good guess you (or
someone close to you) is a Beatles fan — and you’re all
invited to:

BOBBY BRUCE – (aka NEARLY NEIL)

Bobby Bruce is an internationally renowned entertainer who has enjoyed sixteen years of headlining tours around the globe. A consummate professional, his outstanding voice and commanding stage presence have captivated audiences worldwide.

From his origins as a childhood actor, Bobby honed his keen theatrical skills. Beginning with a decade of operatic training, Bobby compounded his natural abilities. Building upon his skill set, Bobby evolved into musical theatre. There, by chance, he realized his innate ability to recreate the unique sound of Neil Diamond.

In 1994, Bobby took the stage in his tribute to Neil Diamond and a “legend” was born. Within two years the world-famous Las Vegas based “Legends in Concert” had selected him for their line up. After his first ten-month stint in the United States, which took him to theatres in Branson, Missouri and casinos in Atlantic City and Nevada, Bobby’s talent caught the attention of producers from far and wide.

As a feature in “Legends of Rock” Bobby appeared on sixty stages across Australia. Performing on every major television program and in theatres, clubs and casinos from Perth to Sydney his celebrity spread and a new name was born – the Australian press dubbing Bobby’s tribute “Nearly Neil”.

The recognition by the press and public of Bobby’s talent within the “Legends” format inspired a revolution in thinking. Upon his return from Australia, Bobby decided to go out on a limb and introduce his tribute to Neil Diamond independently; he formed Nearly Neil and the Solitary Band. Expanding his show format to include his own band, some of their own arrangements of Diamond’s immense repertoire, Bobby could focus his well-developed entertainment expertise on a complete evening. Critics and fans alike embraced his newfound freedom and passion.

Since, Bobby’s Nearly Neil tribute has enjoyed resounding success. Bobby starred in MOCKSTARS, a feature length documentary about tribute artists that continues to air internationally. As well, the Pacific National Exhibition awarded him Entertainer of the Year in 2006. Bobby has performed to the King and Queen of Malaysia – indeed returning to Malaysia a dozen times. His tribute to Neil Diamond has headlined numerous national tours of Canada, Australia and New Zealand. His Nearly Neil show has thrilled audiences in the Cayman Islands, Borneo, and Hawaii.

Bobby and the Solitary Band recently completed their 50 date tour of the United States that took them 48,000 kms through 22 states. Nestled between an Ontario tour and his most recent return to Australia.

From cruise ships in the South Pacific to 30,000 people in Calgary, everyone knows, everyone goes, to Bobby Bruce’s shows.
