Almost Famous features Steve Halfnights and Wes Reamsbottom, both of whom are educators, coaches, and volunteers in our local community. The two have been playing together since 2009, and have thrilled audiences all over BC with their energetic, acoustic takes on crowd favourites. You'll catch them playing regularly downtown at The Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub, and locally at Kingfishers Waterfront Bar and Grill. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram with the tag "musicbyalmostfamous"
Steve and Wes got together recently (physically distant of course) to record a few songs to help us celebrate Pitt Meadows Day!
Todd is one of the most distinct, refreshing artists on the country music scene today. Born in Hamilton but raised in BC, Todd's rich vocals and unique style have fans sitting up and taking notice - and they're loving what they see and hear. BC Country Music associations "Humanitarian of the Year in 2017 and again in 2018, two time CBC Searchlight semi-finalist, Todd has been busy building his growing fan base of TR Rebels and "Frands" and has shared the stage with many of country music's top acts, including Dwight Yoakum, Dierks Bentley, Gord Bamford, Aaron Goodvin and rock legend Randy Bachman to name a few.
To all the brave men and women, the Angels in Green and Blue, thank you for all that you do...
