Cowichan Performing Arts Centre Cabaret Series

This fall we’re transforming our stage with our retro-style cabaret series. Kick back and enjoy cool jazz tones and primal blues music from Canadian artists. Our speakeasy-style venue with on-stage seating is a great place to catch live music in a chill, intimate setting. Seating is limited.

The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer

“A gritty and funky treat.” – Exclaim!

Inventive and infectious, this blues-rock duo is well-known for their high-energy performances. Their fresh and eclectic vibe delivers a musical cocktail of good-times bar blues, old-fashioned Chuck Berry-style rock and roll and a cool groove with Talking Heads-like funk.

“You don’t even have to be a blues enthusiast to appreciate good music and what this duo has been creating is something that is beyond good. Their music is packed with a lot of heart, soul and sensual melody.” – Gian Karla Limcangco, Vancouver Weekly

“They’ve been lumped in with world-class acts such as The White Stripes and The Black Keys, artists paying tribute to the blues through rock, but what they are offering is a whole other beast. … what separates them from the rest is how they’re rapidly converting people to the blues with their brand of groin-grabbing rock.” – Thomas Creery, Vancouver Weekly

“This blues-rock duo harness the sound of a full band …and have the entire place foot-stomping like it was a honky tonk. These two don't know how to disappoint a crowd, only how to move them.” – Fingers On Blast
