What is the Barney Bentall and
The Cariboo Express concert?

This musical hootenanny harkens back to a simpler time filled with music and laughter, where songs and stories capture the imagination and warm the heart (think Prairie Home Companion). The performance blends humorous monologues with a heartfelt set of roots, folk, and country favorites. Prepare to cheer and sing along while dancing in the aisles! Over 900 concert goers come together to support Potluck at this one-of-a-kind classic variety show hosted by Canadian music icon and Juno-award winning musician Barney Bentall.

Pre-sale tickets go on sale for Friends of Potluck (that means us, which also means you!) on Tuesday, September 3 at 10:00am (tickets go on sale September 9 for the general public).

2. All other seats in the theatre are also available September 3 (one week ahead of the general public) using the Friends of Potluck promo code potluckexpress2019 via Eventbrite ticket sales. Prices vary as follows: Orchestra (Lower Bowl — row 4 onward) — $49.95, Dress Circle & Balcony — $39.95.

Which should I choose?

The first three rows offer unparalleled engagement with the huge band and their masterful skill on the violin, guitar, piano, harmonica, and more! And it feels great to make a donation as part of your ticket purchase to support the Potluck Café Society! That said, any seat in the house is a great seat from which to enjoy the show, so gather up a group of friends and come on out!

All JSK Partners’ clients and their party who buy any tickets (VIP or standard) are invited to a private pre-concert reception at the Granville Room, just across the street from The Vogue. More details will be made available closer to the date, but don’t plan to go elsewhere for dinner beforehand! We’ve also made sure the newly-renovated Granville Room is wheelchair accessible.
