Canada Day Celebration

July-1st-Canada-Day-Fireworks-2014-7We hope all our fellow Canadians had a fantastic Canada Day!
We celebrated at Surrey’s Canada Day Celebration and enjoyed a night full of live music and fireworks.  

We’ve never celebrated Canada Day in Surrey before, we usually stay closer to home and family. But when we heard that one of our all time favourite Canadian artist’s, Matthew Good, was going to be performing we didn’t hesitate. It was a bonus when we found out that 2 more Canadian musicians that we’re fans of were also going to be taking the stage.

It was jam packed with an estimated 60-100,000 people! We got there just when Kyprios was taking the stage and we managed to get a spot right up at the front of the stage. Perfect for pictures and right before it got completely crazy with limited standing room.

Just like the first time, he was amazing and got the crowd pumped up with his non-stop high energy performance.

This North Vancouver native has been in the music scene since 2000. He’s done Vancouver proud with a Juno nomination in 2005 for ‘Ignorance Is Beautiful’ and winning The 2010 Peak Performance Project for local emerging artists.

Check out one of our favourite songs by Kyprios titled ‘City Woman’:

Check out one of our fave Daniel Wesley songs, ‘Pilgrimage’:

IMG_5809ygMatthew Good was the main reason why we decided to celebrate Canada Day in Surrey. We are both huge fans of his music and have seen him perform numerous times over the years. So we definitely couldn’t pass up the chance to see him live close by and for free. He played a perfect set (as always) and performed fan favourites Alert Status Red, Weapon, Load Me Up, Had It Coming, Hello Time Bomb, So Close, Last Parade, Guns of Carolina and more.
