The End of the Beginning


In 2009 we opened the Streaming Cafe space with the idea of merging live music with live streaming online concerts. For the last 7 years we have pursued that goal at our location on Leon Ave. and over that time we’ve seen our audience grow to fill our small venue week after week. We love supporting artists and believe we can build on what we are already doing – bringing quality live shows to Kelowna and beyond.

Sometimes however, to move forward you have to leave some things behind. With that in mind, to expand on our vision, we have made the tough decision to close the coffee shop on Leon Ave. and move our Streaming Café shows to larger venues to provide more opportunity for artists and our audience. What this means is that June 25th will be our last show and the last day our doors will be open at our Leon Ave location. In the weeks to come we will be announcing our show schedule for the fall. Although it is going to be hard to leave our intimate space and wood wall we are very excited for what the future holds for Streaming Café. We truly appreciate everyone that has been part of this story so far and we look forward to seeing this community grow.

Thanks for your continued support!




The Lion The Bear The Fox live in concert


Streaming Cafe is very proud to present The Lion The Bear The Fox live in concert Saturday, June 11.


Vancouver’s Lion Bear Fox is three huge voices joined as one, telling the truth through compelling story, honest narrative and unbridled passion. Three men going to war onstage every night to share a message of hope, vulnerability and redemption. Lion Bear Fox is “a musical force of nature”, an “emotional awakening” that’s sure to “be around for a lifetime”. (Nanaimo Daily News/Songs in the Valley/Terry David Mulligan).
Originally known for their respective solo careers, Christopher Arruda, Ryan McMahon and Cory Woodward joined forces as Lion Bear Fox in 2012 and was immediately selected as one of the top 20 unsigned bands British Columbia (Peak Performance Project). The fall of 2013 saw the band release their self-produced breakthrough EP “We’d Be Good Men” and take Western Canada by storm, touring 15 times over the next two years including stops at Canadian Music Week (Toronto), Contact East (PEI), OSAC (Regina) Mission Folk Festival and The Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, BC. They have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with artists like Tom Wilson, Good For Grapes, Elliot Brood and Kim Mitchell.

The Small Glories live at Streaming Cafe


tsg_SC_webStreaming Cafe is very proud to present The Small Glories ( Cara Luft & JD Edwards) Friday, April 1 with special guest Matthew Hornell

Folk powerhouse pair The Small Glories are Cara Luft & JD Edwards, a dynamic new duo planted on the Canadian Prairies. They are a study in contrasts; Cara, all earth mother on her 21-speed bike, helmet and backpack, environmentally friendly and wholesome, ebullient and engaging; and burly JD, looking like a cross between a biker and long-haul trucker in scruffy beard, ball cap, t-shirt and jean jacket, slightly intimidating (until you meet him). At first glance few would peg them for a highly creative musical partnership. Yet these two veteran singer/songwriters have teamed up and are building a buzz around their tight harmonies, authenticity and visceral performances. Luft is a Juno award winner, co-founder of folk trio The Wailin’ Jennys, and a touring road warrior. She has earned a solid reputation as an exciting live performer, accomplished guitarist, clawhammer banjo player and insightfully honest songwriter. Edwards has a voice that defies categorization, one that easily ranges from gentle and melodic to fierce and powerful, leaving listeners begging for more. He is truly one of the finest singers of his time. Together as The Small Glories, Luft and Edwards are a tour de force, a case of 1 + 1 = 3.

Show at 8pm – Doors at 7pm

Kane (The Grapes of Wrath) & Potvin (The Northern Pikes)


Streaming Cafe is very proud to present Kevin Kane (The Grapes of Wrath) & Bryan Potvin (The Northern Pikes) on Friday, February 26.
From the mid-’80s to the early-’90s, The Grapes Of Wrath and The Northern Pikes were responsible for some of the catchiest and most heart-felt singles and videos to come out of Canada at that time. Fast forward some 20 years later and the vocalist/guitarists from each of these bands find themselves living just blocks away from one another in Toronto.

This realization led to Bryan Potvin (The Northern Pikes) and Kevin Kane (The Grapes of Wrath) getting together to hang out with a couple of guitars for some casual jams, and the conclusion: “This sounds good! Let’s do some shows!

Show at 8pm – Doors at 7pm

Award-winning guitarist + singer-songwriter Cécile Doo-Kingué


We are so happy to be presenting Cécile Doo-Kinguébjrg_CDKDialogues at Streaming Cafe on Wednesday, February 10.
The early 2015 release of Montreal guitarist and singer-songwriter Cécile Doo-Kingué’s acclaimed solo acoustic recording, Anybody Listening Part 1: Monologuesshowcased Doo-Kingué’s songwriting in its rawest form, earning her accolades and multiple Maple Blues Award nominations for her exceptional guitar playing, soulful vocals, and powerful songwriting.

On January 22, 2016, Doo-Kingué will release the second chapter of her trilogy exploring blues, roots, and life in their myriad of aspects. Anybody Listening Part 2: Dialogues features her strength and versatility as an all-around guitarist and musician, from blues to jazz to folk to soul to rock n’ roll. Fiery licks and seamless melody compliment her deep, laid-back voice throughout the album, leaving no doubt as to the guitarist’s oneness with the instrument, nor the unity of her sound. Surrounded by a stellar cast of Montreal’s finest musicians, Doo-Kingué presents an eclectic collection of contemporary blues adding to the social commentary of Anybody Listening Part 1:Monologues, and celebrating life and music with fellow artists she is a fan of, in spaces that exude positive energy.

Anybody Listening Part 2: Dialogues is a family reunion, as much in the ‘whom’ as ‘where and how’ it was recorded. Doo-Kingue called on long time collaborators Kim Richardson and Alan Prater, Kalmunity Vibe Collective regulars Malika Tirolien, Fredy V, Wayne Tennant, and Nadia Bashalani to ensure the soulful back vocals to the album.The album was predominantly tracked and entirely mixed at Bottega Studios in Kelowna, owned by the same patrons of the arts who run Streaming Café. Most of the bed tracks are courtesy of two of her live trio rhythm sections, Anthony Pageot on drums, paired with Fredy V and Cedric Dind-Lavoie on bass. The Dialogues version of “Six Letters features” two of Doo-Kingué’s favourite guitarists: her brother J.C ‘Dook’, and Montreal soul / funk legend Daniel ‘DJ’ Joseph, invited to play lead on the track alongside Kelowna-based banjoist Jesse Padgett.

Thematically, Anybody Listening Part 2: Dialogues continues the social commentary found on Monologues, adding disenfranchisement (Riot & Revolution), self-gratification (Pure Entertainment), and religious fanaticism (Faith) to the themes explored by the trilogy. Cécile Doo-Kingué also celebrates the sweeter side of life, (Sunshine Lady, Thankful, and Little Bit) as a reminder that life is beautiful, despite the state of the world. To pay tribute to one of her favourite guitarists while raising awareness of mental illness, Doo- Kingué ends the collection with a full steam version of Jimi Hendrix’s “Manic Depression”.

Cécile Doo-Kingué isn’t just another token “chick” guitarist; her talents are measured not by gender lines, but by the fact that she is quickly earning a stellar reputation and a place alongside Canada’s current roster of great guitarists. Powerful and raw, Cécile Doo-Kingué’s guitar prowess, lyrics, and sound make for enthralling and intimate communion.


Featured Visual Artist: Wayne Wilson


WWl It is a pleasure to have Wayne Wilson’s art on our walls for the month of December! Come down to the cafe and see the works in person.

Landscape and panoramic imagery clearly dominate my current art work. For the most part, this grows out of a strong notion that there is something attractively primal in the panoramic format. The eye, sweeping side to side, pays a kind of homage to the horizon – and in every culture, it seems to me, the horizon both pushes and pulls us to its brink and beyond. Some of my other compellingly strong tendencies, however, are more strongly drawn toward the eclectic and bring influences from still life and the abstract.
As a geographer by training, it has always struck me that the nature of space and/or place are never merely important to the expression of who we are; they are critical. I try to find that in my art; to distil the place and reveal its own rhythm.

I was born in Lillooet, BC in a house my father built out of railway ties. He had grown up in the Okanagan (Oliver) and, after moving around British Columbia as a school teacher, we moved back to the Okanagan (Kelowna) in the 1960s. I have worked as a cowboy, truck driver, lounge singer, purchasing agent, college professor, narrator and at many other jobs – I spent most of my career, however, in the Museum field and loved every day of that work.
Sketching and other artwork have been part of my life since I was a teenager, and since then I have taken a sketchbook and paints with me wherever I go.

We’ve had a really great year of music at the cafe hosting over 60 shows with some stellar performances from talent across Canada. There’s only a few weeks of 2015 so be sure to catch a show or two before years end.
