• BVJ Unveils Small Town Saturday Night


    For 19 years, Big Valley Jamboree has enjoyed the support of hundreds of thousands of loyal fans from across North America.  A major part of that support has come from rural communities throughout Alberta.  As part of Big Valley Jamboree’s 20th Anniversary Season, Big Valley Jamboree and Travel Alberta have partnered to show their appreciation of that fantastic support and reward one rural Alberta community with a very special “Thank You”.

    In 2012, we are going to bring a “mini” Big Valley Jamboree experience to one lucky and deserving rural Alberta community. All the excitement of Big Valley, including some of Canada’s finest country music entertainers could be coming to YOUR town!  We are calling it “Small town Saturday Night”, but you will call it “one incredible, unforgettable, amazing experience!”

    Headlining the list of performers for Small Town Saturday Night will be multiple CCMA Award winner Dean Brody! Having just finished touring the nation with the cross-Canada CMT Hit list Tour, Brody is one of Canada’s fastest-rising male vocalists.  Brody earned three CCMA Awards this year – Album of the Year, Single of the Year, and Songwriter of the Year on the strength of his album “Trail in Life”.

    Helping to round out the complete Big Valley Jamboree experience will be a Songwriters Circle, hosted by Aaron Lines. Anyone who has attended a Songwriters Workshop at Big Valley Jamboree can attest to the quality and intimate atmosphere that this aspect of Big Valley Jamboree delivers.

    Adding even more of the complete Big Valley Jamboree experience will be the talents and humour of Master of Ceremonies Danny Hooper, who annually entertains his fans on the Main Stage in Camrose.  Hooper will be MC at Small Town Saturday Night as well.

    It is easy to enter! Simply pick up your video camera and show us why you think YOUR community is the best place for the “Small Town Saturday Night” experience!  Upload your video to YouTube, and then get your friends, neighbours and entire community to vote for your video online.

    The contest will open November 7, 2011 with the winning community announced on March 22, 2012.  The show will take place on April 28, 2012 so get your community involved now!

    More information will be announced shortly. Further details are available at www.bigvalleyjamboree.com/STSN
