Alberta’s entertainment destination: River Cree Resort & Casino features exciting lineup

Alberta’s entertainment destination: River Cree Resort & Casino features exciting lineup

If you think you need to hop on a plane to see Vegas-calibre performances, think again. River Cree Resort and Casino is Alberta’s biggest entertainment hub, and its lineup has more in common with a luxury hotel than any other venue in the province – with a roster of performers that has included Diana Ross, ZZ Top, Alabama, Chris Tucker, Salt-N-Peppa and Jay Leno, among many other famous names. Yet it’s right at the corner of Whitemud Drive and Winterburn Road, just five minutes west of West Edmonton Mall. The facility, completed just a year and a half ago, held its first show on New Year’s Eve, 2015. Since then, it has been hosting around 60 shows a year—many sold out

 
 

Wildlife: Doug Jahma remembered at Front Gallery Saturday

Wildlife: Doug Jahma remembered at Front Gallery Saturday

Figure painter Doug Jahma, who died suddenly of a heart attack in May, didn’t have a service in a church or funeral home. Instead, his family consented to an art show at Front Gallery this Saturday, an evening of tribute and remembrance. Front’s owner Rachel Bouchard discusses the painter, who was born in Edmonton in 1952. “Doug spent ten years as a professional musician. Ten years training as a visual artist, working primarily in abstraction. Ten years of painting, using images of women, exploring visually what was important to him as a man. He became more connected in the art community when RFM McInnis started the Artists’ Breakfast Club, which was held as a Sunday brunch in the Park Hotel off Whyte Avenue. Doug loved to debate and built many good relationships during this time.
