ORIGINAL STORY BELOW

Barney Bentall, Jim Byrnes and John Mann are all coming to Mission for one special night of music.

The Clarke Theatre will host the three musicians on Thursday, March 12, starting at 7:30 p.m.

Barney Bentall has been creating music since 1978. In 1983, the Legendary Hearts moniker was added and the music was magic.  Their debut album featured three hit songs, Something to Live For, House of Love (is Haunted) and Come Back to Me.  The hits just kept on coming with Crime Against Love, Life Could Be Worse, Livin’ in the ’90s, Doin’ Fine, Do Ya, and Shattered.

Three-time Juno winner and BC Entertainment Hall of Famer Jim Byrnes was born in blues country. Forty-five years on the blues highway with the likes of Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Taj Mahal and Robert Cray landed this quintessential blues man in Vancouver.

Now a West Coast legend, Byrnes has crooned, drawled, belted, hollered and sweet-talked such songs as 12 Questions, Walk on Boy, Still Stuck on You, Jailbird Love Song and Just a Pilgrim, Winner of Canadian Spotlight Awards’ best music video of the year (2006).

n With 11 albums and countless tours of the U.K., Europe and North America fronting Spirit of the West, John Mann returns with his newest work as a solo artist, The Waiting Room. This album is a testament to the journey this Juno-winning musician and actor took while he was sick with cancer (2009 through 2011).

Confronted with the challenge of his life, Mann’s approach on this multifaceted project captures his experience, creating a natural script and visual journey that delivers tears and laughter as he reveals the most vulnerable moments of his recovery.

The musical event is being presented by Rock.It Boy Entertainment. Tickets are $37.50 and are available at Ticketmaster, by phone 1-885-985-5000 or online at www.ticketmaster.ca.
