So you think you’re a country singer?

Almost Famous Entertainment and Rockin’ River Music Festival are joining forces to find some of the Fraser Valley’s finest singers

Almost Famous Entertainment and Rockin’ River Music Festival are joining forces to find some of the Fraser Valley’s finest barroom singers and give them a festival stage to perform on.

Almost Famous Entertainment (AFE) operates karaoke nights throughout the Fraser Valley, and will give singers an opportunity to become one of two singers to take Rockin’ River’s “Little Big” stage before Gord Bamford sings Friday, Aug. 8. Singers and listeners who attend AFE karaoke nights also get a chance to win Rockin’ River Music Musicfest tickets for this August’s festival.

Rockin’ River Musicfest, at Mission Raceway Park (32670 Dyke Rd., Mission), set for Aug. 7-9, will feature Rascal Flatts, Terri Clark, Gord Bamford, The Road Hammers, Hey Romeo, Julian Austin and many more, performing on three stages.

“During the next six weeks, AFE karaoke singers have a shot at winning a chance to perform on a Rockin’ River Musicfest stage,” says Almost Famous Entertainment owner Jacqueline Stone. “Everyone, whether performing or listening, gets a shot at winning Rockin’ River festival tickets so come on out and support our Fraser Valley singers.”

Singing at Rockin’ River could potentially put the talented karaoke singers in front of 15,000 people. Last year, Rockin’ River Musicfest hosted just less than 30,000 music fans over the festival’s three days — and they came from all over the Lower Mainland and BC. This year festival organizers want even more people attending.

“We’re looking forward to seeing some talented singers on our Little Big Stage this year,” says Rockin’ River president Kenny Hess. He added this year’s festival has a third stage for the first time. “Rockin’ River Musicfest has been one of the Fraser Valley’s biggest parties of the year, as the party’s getting bigger. This year’s lineup, our party atmosphere, and some talented Fraser Valley singers will make this year’s festival a big-time fun weekend.”

Almost Famous Entertainment stops at several Fraser Valley pubs such as: Sneakers Pub (Abbotsford), Sandpiper Pub (White Rock), Rusty’s Pub (Cloverdale), the Clydesdale’s Inn (Cloverdale), Sawbucks Pub (South Surrey), Green Timbers Pub (Surrey), and Baselines Pub (Surrey).
