Tribute night at the Hope Legion

Kenny Shaw and Brian Temple combine music and comedy

Kenny Shaw and Brian Temple bring their new ’60s tribute extravaganza to Hope on March 7.

Kenny Shaw and Brian Temple have merged their musical talents and humorous antics to form a comedy duo aimed directly at the funny bone of baby boomer audiences.

The music veterans are bringing their new ’60s tribute extravaganza to the Hope Legion on March 7 at 7:30 p.m.

Shaw, a BC Country Music Association Hall of Fame inductee and three-time winner of the Entertainer of the Year award, is well-loved by audiences for his high-energy antics, animated story telling and very large hat.

He’s opened for Brooks & Dunn, the Doobie Brothers, Travis Tritt, and Billy Idol, and has gained the love of fans across the continent from stages at The Mirage in Las Vegas to community halls in Inuvik. More recently, he has been on seven Canadian Forces Overseas Show Tours, including three in Afghanistan.

Temple, an original member of CBS’s Hudson Brothers band, has added to the pulse of the thriving downtown nightlife in the Pacific Northwest for years, engaging audiences in the club circuit and gaining the reputation as a sought-after session player. He is a multi-instrumentalist equally at home playing percussion, bass, or guitar. Temple has shared both stage and studio with recording artists Farmer’s Daughter, George Fox, Julian Austin and Suzanne Gitzi.

Tickets to the show are $10 at the Legion.
