Valentine’s with Peter Elkas

February 15th, 2009

In the true spirit of Valentine’s Day, John and I had a most romantic evening… at a BobCat house concert featuring Peter Elkas (and lovely opener Andrea Simms-Karp) with 40 other lucky audience members. I’ve seen Peter perform, oh, a few times… but in such an intimate space where you could hear a pin drop, this was an absolute treat and a truly unique experience.

Peter played with “Master of Music” Doug Friesen, who accompanied with a stand-up bass:

Besides having talent, voice and charming banter, Peter also happens to be an incredibly nice and humble guy. Plus, he does a mean version of the Family Ties theme song.

Until you get the chance to see Peter live, drop by his myspace page to take a listen — ‘Party of One’ is still probably my favourite to sing along to. And if you ever get the chance to sit next to him, I urge you to try the ol’ yawn-and-stretch move — he’s a sucker for it!

good peeps, in the memory bank, music , , ,
