Who: Chris Buck Band
Where: Gabby’s Country Cabaret in Langley, BC
When: July 3, 2014
The Chris Buck Band is a reggae/country band from Vancouver, BC. They recently released their new single “Caribbean Dream” to radio and ITunes. They will be releasing their new album shortly. I was able to see the band on July 3, 2014 on the first of their three nights at Gabby’s Country Cabaret in Langley, BC. The line-up consisted of Philip Puxley, Jordan ‘JP’ Pritchett, Seamus O’Neill, Michael Vanderlans, and of course, Chris Buck.
The set list consisted of an array of songs, including their single “Caribbean Dream” and covers of “Gangster’s Paradise”, “Chicken Fried,” “Stompa,” and “Pour Some Sugar on me.” It is a fun environment. The band makes you want to get up and dance as the night progresses.
If you like country or simply like to dance, definitely check out the Chris Buck Band. It’s always a fun night!
Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
