When You’re Smiling – Frank. Dean. Sammy. Their friendships in story and song. In Las Vegas, Nevada during the 1960’s, there once lived three of the most handsome, funny and talented entertainers in the world. They could do anything they dreamed up. They were as naughty as they wanted to be and they had the world wrapped around their fingers.

Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. lived their lives like kings. They shared unique and very special friendships because of it. To the world, it looked like the fellas lived a non-stop cycle of highballs and hangovers. But in reality, they faced many tough situations. They experienced racism, unhappy gangsters and politicians. They also kept some very well hidden secrets.

Former CBC Radio Host Tim Tamashiro brings a new approach to the stories of swinging Las Vegas with his new show, When You’re Smiling. He’ll tell you all about the special friendships of “The Summit”. You’ll hear the crazy stories and enjoy the songs of the three most talented rascals to ever put on tuxedos. Tim promises great songs, cold drinks and bad jokes.

Let your hair down. Bring your funnest friends. Put on your best grin because when you’re smiling, the whole world smiles with you.

John Wort Hannam

7:30pm (Doors open at 6:30pm)
Bassano Community Hall - 610 - 2nd Ave

In 2001, John Wort Hannam quit his teaching job and spent ten months depleting his savings while he sat at his kitchen table, wearing a lucky hat, writing his first ten songs. Those songs would become his first recording Pocket Full Of Holes, released in 2003. Fast forward to 2021, with a few feathers in that lucky hat that include a JUNO nomination and a Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Album of the Year, he’s got a new energy fueled by a new band, a new sound, new songs, and a new album, Long Haul, scheduled to be released this October!

Have you watched the video for ‘Acres of Elbow Room’ yet? I’m back on tour tomorrow, so I thought it would be a good time to remind you to watch it, because it’s a video I’m so proud of. The song is about missing the open space of the country while living in the city, something I think most Canadians can identify with. The video is up on my facebook page, so head on over + give it a watch!👍🏻
