Last year I had the pleasure of capturing Joanie Loves Chachi at Party in the Park. They promised there was big things to come and sure enough this summer they hit the recording studio and are working on an album! The new music coming out of this close knit trio is amazing and I am so excited for the upcoming release of a full album.

Last night they opened up for The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets and DOA (those pictures are still to follow) at Mainstreet Night Club in Chilliwack, BC. Here are a few pictures from their set. - Claudia Wyler


Friday nights in July mean Party in the Park in our hometown of Chilliwack, BC, where live music, food trucks, the activity zone and a pop up market all meet as one in the downtown core. When my kids were younger we never missed a Party in the Park but as they got older and our weekends got busier we stopped attending. When Joanie Loves Chachi announced that they were playing again and would be performing at Party in the Park this year I was beyond thrilled.

Joanie loves Chachi have been around since 2000. I have so many fond memories of listening to them jam at parties and numerous 'old school' venues in my early 20's. This 3 piece band originally from Chillliwack has had many other local musicians contribute to their works during their career of playing extensively in the Lower Mainland. Now that good friends Dean Young, Norm Thody and Barry Higginson are re-united they are developing new music that brings a much more mature and focused sound. Truly excited to see what their passion and drive has in store for Joanie Loves Chachi. - Claudia Wyler
