ABRA Cadabra thoroughly enjoyed their recent performances at the PNE this year! The crew was first class as always and the audiences were awesome for both nights! They even stuck it out through pouring rain and a power outage in the middle of the show on the 2nd night!! Some other really special performances this Summer were the AIDS Vancouver 30/30 Event at The Commodore Ballroom (pictured below), Port Moody's 100th Anniversary Party, Sing Tao Newspaper's 30th Anniversary party at the Hotel Vancouver and EH Angle's Rockin' Orthodontist's conference at the Fairmont Waterfront! ABRA Cadabra did a short interview and unplugged performance of 'Waterloo' on GLOBAL TV recently. If you didn't get a chance to see it live, you can watch it here

Our Michael Buble' Tribute show 'Sway' (Starring Adam Lucas) enjoyed being a part of some great events throughout the Summer including the Parkersburg Concert Series in West Virginia! The cast performed at an outdoor amphitheatre on the edge of the Ohio River for a warm & receptive audience of over 1200 people. The cast had the most beautiful West Virginia sun-set for a backdrop! (pictured below). Above the great performing experience, were the friends we made while we were there, We really enjoyed connecting with the people of Parkersburg (especially the Nesselrode family:) and made some great new friends. Some other Summer highlights for Sway included performances at the River Rock Show Theatre for the Odd Squad Gala, the Surrey Festival, Newport Village Festival and a private house party at a beautiful ocean bluff estate in White Rock. Sway has some exciting shows coming up in Las Vegas, Columbus Ohio & Atlantic City! See the full performance calendar for 'Sway' here
