The local guests we get to have with us bring a new energy to the show which is always a rush.

His debut album, Streets With No Lights, delivered 10 songs of pure life experience, not a “skip it” among them – earned from surviving car crashes, tours and relationships all framed up with simple, singable phrasing that wasted not one note nor drop of ink.
The mix of musicians is a bit different each year, with a strong core. It is becoming somewhat of at least a Western Canadian institution.I love Rich, Del, Pat and Adam, and love to play with them whenever we get the chance, but for the time being the next record and chapter of my life will be billed as Dustin Bentall.

You and Kendel have been on the road together for close to a decade, and you play with your dad fairly often.Days in the shop were incredible: Anything from 14 hour crushing days of leatherwork to having rock stars like Father John Misty or John Paul White coming into our 200 sq. tilting East Van shop to film “b.b gun sessions” with the CBC.

All of us on stage together for the encore, that was one for the books! You have to just constantly put the pen to paper and not be afraid to fail. We’ve done a lot of writing together over the past year and it’s been really exciting.
