Whenever you can, grab a ticket to catch Johnny Reid.
Oh, but you already knew that! And there they were, a giddy, steady stream of fans at Conexus Arts Centre.
I last saw JR when he was the Friday closer at the Craven Country Jamboree July 2011.
Working the main stage catwalk, having the audience participate. The total Johnny Reid package, right! NO, it wasn’t!
Craven was good, but last night was Classic Johnny Reid – or at least I’m sure it was! I’m not a paid member of the TARTAN ARMY, you know!
Since this was the first time I have seen the full Johnny experience, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. Although I had a pretty good idea!
Solid entertainment across the board: Aaron Goodvin, JJ Shiplett opening and a full impact show. Just like Vegas, baby!
The Johnny Reid set including Natalie McMaster, a mascot, plus local Saskatchewan talent (a youth choir and a mini pipe-band drum corps).
Would it be right for me to give you all the twists and turns of the concert. Still two shows left this week, I would hate to spoil your fun!
There were costume changes, blues, country, celtic and a bit of ROCK!
An amazing band with piano, horns, percussion and back up singers. Material from the new album, the Johnny Reid classics too. The back drop made the stage come alive. The merchandise, posing, photo-ops and sing-a-longs.
The promotion of the MusiCounts Band Aid Program was fantastic. And, to the fans in attendance, local schools will see the benefit of the Regina concerts. Thanks Johnny!
A career that has evolved over the years, Johnny Reid is a showman, his comedic timing is great.
In fine voice and lapping up the attention that is showered on him, Johnny Reid is a born performer. If its the first time you’ve seen him or the 10th, you’ll love Johnny Reid.
Listen at 2 pm for Colin Lovequist’s special guests!
