Jack has reached an international audience in his 40-plus year career, however, this will be his first performance in Kelowna. Jack is a Juno recipient, two-time Gemini nominee, two-time winner of the Western Canadian Blues album of the year, and has twice been on the Grammy ballot nomination for 2017 and 2018.
But what is greatest is when Jack jams live! He is flying in his drummer Brent Jefferson for the Kelowna performance. His near lifelong bassist Dave Chabot has just recently moved to Kelowna and is now another of our musical treasures. Come experience a musical outpouring aimed to raise the roof!
For Penticton and Vernon fans, JACK will also be doing solo acoustic shows at the DREAM CAFE in Penticton on January 17 and THE VERNON LODGE on January 18.
Jack Semple grew up on a farm north of Regina, Saskatchewan. He started his musical career playing with various Regina-based bands, and later relocated to Toronto in the late 1980s to become the lead guitarist of The Lincolns, a popular funk and rhythm and blues band. He left the band after two years and returned to Regina to pursue a solo career and to spend more time with his family.
After his move back to Regina, Semple contributed to television and music scores and appeared in the title role of Guitarman, a 1994 television movie. Semple also commenced a solo recording career that has resulted in the release of ten albums.
In 1992, Semple came to national prominence through winning the MuchMusic “Guitar Wars” contest. Semple has been twice nominated, in 1999 and 2000, for a Gemini Award for his soundtrack work on the television series Incredible Story Studio.
Semple won a Juno award in 1991 for best roots recording. He has won two Western Canadian music awards for “Qu’Appelle” and “In the Blue Light”. Semple continues to perform as a solo artist and with The Jack Semple Band, across Canada and now being championed across America!
Jack Semple writes and performs “Modern Blues” without forgetting where he came from. He is an epic guitarist and a soulful singer. His music is like Stevie Ray Vaughn meets James Brown meets Robben Ford. He is a Juno Award winner and Western Canadian Music Award winner.
Don’t miss this fantastic music experience.
