Juno-Award-winning artist coming to Airdrie
Thursday, Feb 20, 2014 06:00 am
Juno Award-winning artist Sass Jordan will grace the stage at Bert Church Live Theatre (BCT) Feb. 22, at 7:30 p.m. for her first time since 2009.
“I had the opportunity to take in some of Sass Jordan’s 2009 show at the BCT. To this day, she remains my favourite performer ever to be on our stage,” said BCT Publicist Jennifer Cormier in an email to Airdrie City View. “She absolutely filled the theatre with her charm and character and made her concert feel even more intimate with her easy-going and genuine manner.”
The 30-year music industry veteran and internationally recognized singer/songwriter will keep things intimate once again as she brings her acoustic performance to BCT.
“She engaged with the audience on a level that I have yet to see again. I walked away from that show feeling like I really got to share in a truly memorable evening,” Cormier said of the 2009 performance.
She said part of Jordan’s charm and perhaps part of her staying power in the industry is that she shares stories and who she is with fans of the show.
Cormier added she can’t wait to hear one of her favourite songs by Jordan Make You a Believer at the show.
Jordan’s career has seen her work with some music heavyweights including Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Cheap Trick, Van Halen, Carlos Santana and Joe Cocker. Her songs have been featured on numerous TV shows such as Party of Five, Melrose Place, Knightrider and Baywatch.
Canadian Idol fans will recognize Jordan from the 2003 season where she was a judge of the TV singing competition.
Cormier said BCT provides the perfect venue for a performer like Jordan because with only 377 seats, it lends itself well to small, intimate concerts and added the acoustics are fantastic.
“So many artists have raved about the sound in the room. They just love playing here,” she said.
The venue offers audiences another unique opportunity to actually meet the award-winning artist after the show.
“Sass Jordan will be available to sign autographs and take photos after the show,” Cormier said. “What other venue gives you that kind of opportunity?”
The theatre’s new refreshment station will be open before the show and during the intermission where audience members can grab a beer, wine or bottle of water and snacks. However, only the bottled water is allowed into the actual theatre.
The theatre is also introducing a new, free coat check service at the show, which makes it easier to settle into your seat for a great show when you don’t have to fight for space with your coat.
A limited number of tickets for the show are still available for $37.10 and can be purchased online at
“I think that people continue to follow Sass because she continues to work on new projects and she shares her life and adventures openly with her fans,” Cormier said.
