Neil Diamond Tribute by Jay White
May 30th- 7:30pm

For over 25 years Jay White has continued to stretch his singing and acting talents, while reflecting the stage persona of one of the world’s best loved musical icons. Validation came from Hollywood Director, Ron Howard, who in 2008 cast Jay to play  Neil Diamond in the Academy Award nominated film “Frost/Nixon”. In 2011 Jay was also cast as the lead in a new musical drama film entitled “Beautiful Noise” and in 2002, began his 8 years as a Las Vegas showroom headliner at the Riviera, sparking national interest and recognition. Leeza Gibbons of “Entertainment Tonight” wrote: “He’s uncanny and truly amazing!,” while Jay Leno said, “you do a great job.” White is also honored to have performed for former First Lady Nancy Reagan, introduced actress Starletta Dupois at the Miss Universe Pageant, received a 2003 “Outstanding Performance” award and has appeared with Bob Hope for the American Legion.

In 1996 and again in 2002 White met Diamond before his Vegas MGM appearances, where Neil told Jay to; “keep up the good work”  and autographed a photo of the two signing; “Jay, keep singing, so I can stay home and relax, your friend in music”. From passionate crowds rushing the stage at corporate events, to 1500 enthusiastic alumni at Princeton University, to the cheers of some 18,000 screaming fans in

several 2 hour Salt Lake City performances, White is grateful that his years of hard work and dedication are still so convincing and so appreciated.

Dave gunning
June 23rd, 7:30 pm

“Truly, what makes Gunning so remarkable as an entertainer is his rare gift to be able to

befriend the audience as a whole from the stage throughout the course of the concert.

And, indeed, you do feel as though he’s as good of a friend as any after

a night of songs, stories and lighthearted laughs.” – The Guardian 

Gunning’s recording career is now approaching a full two decades in length (his debut album, Lost Tracks, came out in 1996).

Along with richly-deserved peer respect, he has also earned a shelf full of music industry awards. That tally now stands at eight East Coast Music Awards and two Canadian Folk Music Awards, plus a 2012 Juno Award nomination in the Roots & Traditional Solo Album of the Year category for his album …a tribute to John Allan Cameron, a compelling homage to another of Dave’s Maritime musical heroes.

His songwriting skill has also been internationally recognized, with earlier tunes scoring victories and high placings in some major international songwriting competitions. As a fervent hockey fan, Gunning was also thrilled to win the CBC’s hotly-contested Hockey Night In Canada Song Quest in 2014 with “A Game Goin’ On”, a co-write with David Francey.
