Man it goes against my grain to promote something happening at a casino. Heck, I wouldn't even go hear Stephen Lewis because he was speaking at the River Rock (or whatever they call the abomination of desolation erected on the north edge of Richmond). But it goes further against my grain NOT to enthuse about this rare opportunity to hear Lee Aaron in the lower mainland, mixing her older rock tunes with her new (sometimes faith-inflected) material, which is more in a jazz and pop vein. Indeed her husband John Cody, who has written about music in BC Christian News for decades, will be on the drums - we've been buddies for years, but I've never heard him play! So glad to finally get the chance to hear them both live. Even worth stepping through the doors of "one of those places"....
There's lots to read at the Lee Aaron website - especially in the Press section. And she talks about her Christian faith in a piece at CanadianChristianity.com

In response to numerous inquiries, Lee’s new 2008 show will feature material from her latest releases Beautiful Things and Slick Chick – and for the first time in nearly a decade - revisit her popular rock hits . A comprehensive and entertaining evening that showcases her versatility as an artist and performer, response from fans to this personal selection of songs has been overwhelmingly positive.
A local success story, Prism rose to international superstardom in the seventies and early eighties with classic FM rock tracks like “Armageddon”, “Spaceship Superstar” and “Young and Restless” earning them platinum records.
