Joey Only performed at the North Arm Pub on Nov. 17. Jerusha White backed him up for a set as well. The live music provided some great weekend entertainment.

A foot-stomping good time

Joey Only, the Canadiana character from Wells, B.C. had the North Arm Pub (formerly Stones Pub) rocking on Saturday, Nov. 17.

Live music had the North Arm Pub (formerly Stones Pub) rocking on Saturday, Nov. 17.

Joey Only, the Canadiana character from Wells, B.C. had the dance floor full.

With a bass player and drummer, Joey Only was in fine form, taunting the audience with his crusty characteristic jabs. He made fun of Canucks fans and Newfoundland, but it was all in typical Joey Only style, delivered with a cocky dry charm the Fort St. James crowd took in stride.

Joey Only sings original songs and covers in a Stompin’ Tom/Johnny Cash style hard to resist if you appreciate boot-stomping songs paired with a gravely voice.

Jerusha White performed with Joey Only for a set, rounding out the show.

While the show was not sold out, the crowd was sizeable enough to fill the dance floor, with nearly 100 people in the pub for the night.

The show was put on by MoM organizers, who have already booked bands for December and January as well in partnership with the new pub management.High Society and Blackberry Wood are upcoming performers and both bands were performers at Music on the Mountain 2012.

HIgh Society and Blackberry Wood put on two of the best performances at this year’s festival (in my opinion) so look for me on the dance floor, with camera in hand.
