Humphreys, who says he has carved an ideal business niche based in Squamish, works in a studio that has a view of the Chief. He still travels with work and plans to do more in Whistler next ski season, in addition to one off shows like B.C. Images.

"I take over a retail space, suitable for a quick cleanup, that I can paint myself. For my Christmas show, I painted the walls maroon," says Humphreys.

"Frozen Adrenaline" is a digital show in production which features snapshots of top climbers. But nature is the theme for the B.C. Images show, with photos of eagles, gizzlies and local peaks.

Local musician works with Matt Good’s producer

Local musician Andrea Graham, who plays the Dubh Linn Gate Aug. 22, found John Shepp to produce her first four-song demo.

"I went around to all the different studios in Vancouver and tried to find one I liked," says Graham. Shepp worked with the Matthew Good Band on Underdogs .

Four additional musicians, including Chelsea Schill and Tim Clark, played on the CD which includes original songs Gnomes, Three Feet Tall, Just a Joke, and Airport. The material for Just a Joke hit close to home and heart.

"Just a Joke is kind’ve a long story, but we went berry picking out near Chilliwack and ended up working for 12 hours. But there were others out there, some Cambodians, who only earn around $12 a day," adds Graham.

Step in, step out

Break beat Toronto DJ Robb G. makes an appearance at Tommy Africa’s on Aug. 20, with beats between 130-135 per minute, for the counters out there. His show is part of a seven-day, six-city tour.

"My style is pretty eclectic, all over the board, with some progressive house and interjecting breaks," says the DJ, whose release "Stick Up Kid" topped Satellite Records’ charts in New York in the late ’90s.

"I’ve always been into dancing, I grew up listening to a lot of disco around the house, entertaining the neighbours at age two."

Robb G has been known to pop onto the dance floor himself.

"I got into what I do because I’m passionate about what I do, and it shows."
