Credit Union Place was jam-packed last night as Paul Brandt's "Journey Tour" made a stop in the City of Sunshine. The show was the tours 13th since January 25 and there is no doubt it was a hit for everyone in attendance.
"I thought it went absolutely excellent. We were able to get the big city show here in Dauphin," said Rob Waloschuk, General Manager of Dauphin's Countryfest. "Hats go off to the guys at Credit Union Place for getting a show that's usually set for larger venues into the arena here. It was a great night."
"We ended up having around 2000 people at the event and we were pleased with that," he added. "It looked great in there and I think everyone had an absolutely fantastic time."
The Hunter Brothers kicked off the show just after 7:00 p.m.
After that, the one female act, Jess Moskaluke took centre stage.
Cheap Wine & Cigarettes set the stage for High Valley. After High Valley, Paul Brandt took the stage to cap off what was an incredible night of country music. He even got into the home town spirit by wearing a Dauphin Kings' jersey.
"All of the bands were the highlights of course, and to see all the production and the interaction between the acts and fans was awesome to see," said Waloschuk. "The bands were telling me in the back that for a Sunday, the crowd was incredible."
With the "Journey Tour" officially in the past in Dauphin, all the attention is now on Dauphin's Countryfest which goes from June 27-30.
"That's why we did this concert. We had a lot of people from out of town and we wanted to keep the entertainment in this market place," said Waloschuk. "It really is a tee up towards June."
Tickets for the party of the year are on sale right now at Dauphin's Countryfest.
"Ticket sales are going okay," he added. "We obviously have a ways to go and people aren't necessarily thinking about summer yet but they soon will be."
