British comedian James Mullinger has taken Canada by storm. Sold out shows across the country, appearances on CBC's The Debaters, movies, TV shows, festivals, awards, magazines, stand up specials - since moving to Atlantic Canada four years ago he's done it all.
This April James brings his one of a kind stand-up comedy tour back to the Vogue for a one night show you don't want to miss.

Everyone's favourite Elvis tribute is back with a brand new show.
Celebrating the magic and the music of the King of Rock and Roll with an amazing mixture of Rock,Blues, Country and Gospel songs performed by the best in the business.
Thane Dunn has the uncanny ability to make audiences feel as if they are watching the real thing live. Even Bill Baize of the Stamps Quartet who performed onstage with Elvis from 1971-76 says "Thane Dunn is the closest thing I've ever seen to Elvis and if you never saw Elvis you need to see Thane Dunn".
He is a 2 time World Champion and does not disappoint. If you love Elvis Presley and having fun this is a don't miss event.
Australian-born & Alberta-raised, Gord Bamford stands as one
of the most decorated artists in Canadian country music with
an impressive 24 Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) awards, multi JUNO nominations and the only two time winner out of Nashville’s Country Music Association (CMA) receiving the 2013 & 2015 CMA Global Country Artist award. But it is his distinctive sound and song writing ability that defines Gord Bamford as one of country music’s
best neotraditional artists and like so many others that have come before him; Bamford is not an overnight success. He has spent the better part of the last 20 years honing his craft, working to get where he is today.
Along with bandmates the Drifting Cowboys, this two-act feature performance includes 22 songs from the man hailed by many as the greatest country music singer and songwriter of all time. Ryan Cook and company re-animate the sounds of Don Helms’ haunting steel guitar, Jerry Rivers’ fiddle arrangements, and the yodeling of the lovesick boy from Georgiana, Luke the Drifter himself: Hank Williams.
“Ryan Cook’s channeling of Hank Williams – his voice and heartache- is a moving experience. A terrific performance by this young artist and his band”- Harry Thurston, Gaspereau Press
Ryan Cook began performing as Hank Williams in 2009 when he performed consecutive sold-out weeks of the Maynard Collins play “The Show He Never Gave” in Sackville, New Brunswick.
Now this one night only show comes to the Vogue. Doors open at 7PM show starts at 7:30PM
Tickets are $30 and are avalable at Creative Grounds Café and online

Saint John based chamber folk trio Ladd and Lasses celebrate the release of their debut album "She Wanders' with a concert June 2nd at The Vogue in Miramichi. Tickets for the event are $15 in advance/$20 at the door, and will be available at Creative Grounds Cafe May 4th.
About Ladd and Lasses When Hilary Ladd asked Nienke Izurieta and Katie Bestvater to perform on her first full-length album, she was not expecting to make the transition from singer/songwriter to band member. Having backed up other Saint John artists (Leo Lafleur, Bad People) for the last four years, it was only a matter of time before the trio broke off on their own. What started off as another opportunity for Katie and Nienke to lend their talents to another set of tracks quickly became a chance for them to finally call a band their own. Thus, Ladd & Lasses was born.
Accomplished artists in their own rights, these three diverse musicians have come together with a passion for giving every song its due. A stunning singer with a gift for word play, Hilary spins her scrawled notes into beautiful lyrics and melodies. Then enter the soulful strings of Katie, cellist, and Nienke, violinist, to create a tapestry of harmonies that bring each song to new life. The result is a fusion of classical, folk and pop music with a penchant for epiphany-laden lyrics

British comedian James Mullinger has taken Canada by storm. Sold out shows across the country, appearances on CBC's The Debaters, movies, TV shows, festivals, awards, magazines, stand up specials - since moving to the Maritimes three years ago he's done it all.
But he's putting movies and TV shows aside to go out and do what he loves most. Live stand up comedy. For all of Spring 2018 James is on the road again!
In April 2016, James sold out New Brunswick’s biggest indoor venue Harbour Station with his uniquely hilarious stand up show. This record breaking show was documented for a CBC documentary film 'City On Fire' which has aired across Canada to rave reviews and high ratings. The stand up special of the show itself was picked up by Hulu and Amazon Prime so his tales of life in Atlantic Canada are now being enjoyed by (or confusing!) people in Germany, Japan and America.
Since then James has toured extensively to packed houses across Canada and England and written and produced a big screen feature film starring actors from Downton Abbey and Twilight about his early years in stand up, which was described as "unmissable" by GQ Magazine and "essential viewing. A funny, realistic look at what it takes to become a stand up comedian," by the Montreal Times.
James is New Brunswick's biggest cheerleader. He loves it here and spends his time promoting New Brunswick across the world and raising money for local charities and non-profits. James has raised more than $100,000 for New Brunswick charities. He has also become one of Canada's top comics, being nominated for both a Just For Laughs comedy award and a Canadian Comedy Award for Best Live Show.
He also launched his own international magazine The Maritime Edit to share his love of Canada’s East Coast with the rest of the world.
This is his last tour for a while. Book now for this show, it will sell out.
