Performer Information

Rik Emmett is the guitarist and singer for the Canadian progressive rock act Triumph. By the mid-eighties, Triumph had three gold and platinum albums, established themselves as a premier touring act in North America, and enjoyed generous FM airplay. Rik’s return to Triumph in 2009 came on the heels of his induction into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame with his former band mates.

Rik’s solo career now features ventures into jazz, swing, and fusion, but holds true to his rock and roll roots.

Accompanying Rik in The Troubs is Canadian guitarist Dave Dunlop. This is a rare opportunity to catch these two incredible performers in a great intimate setting (300 seats) at an unbeatable price.

Doors will open at 7:00 PM. The Troubs will take the stage at approximately 8:00 PM.
