Geeks versus Nerds

Geeks versus Nerds is here on Canada's West Coast and we've taken up the mantle of celebrating our local geek, gamer, and comic book nerd subcultures right here in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia. Every month, we pit fan-favourite pop culture icons against each other in a battle royale of wit, hilarity, and memorable one-liners. Each two hour show features two debates: an Opener Debate - which usually pits two less-well-known or retro characters against each other, and a Headliner Debate - which usually features two behemoths of pop culture vying for glory. Each character is represented by a team of three (Team Geeks or Team Nerds) that argue for their candidate's right to hold the title. At the end of each debate, the audience determines the winner by round of applause, and to the winning team goes the "Chalice of Victory".

About Suzie Vinnick...
* 10X Canadian Maple Blues Award Winner*
* 3X Juno Nominee*
* Finalist, 2013 International Blues Challenge - Solo/Duo Category*

A Saskatoon native transplanted to the Niagara Region of Ontario, Roots and Blues singer Suzie Vinnick is a 3X Juno Nominee, CFMA Award winner, and a 10-time winner of the Maple Blues Award for songwriting, female vocalist, acoustic act and more. Suzie has a voice you’ve heard a thousand times and one you’ll never forget. It soars, it growls, it whispers and it shouts from a deep, deep well of emotion. The pure joy she exudes when she picks up that guitar is so worth the show.

Suzie has toured nationally with Stuart McLean’s The Vinyl Café, the John McDermott Band, and she has performed for Canadian Peacekeepers in Bosnia and the Persian Gulf. She was also the voice of Tim Horton’s for 5 years.

Suzie just released her latest album, a full band roots and blues extravaganza entitled Shake The Love Around.

“Warm, rich and emotional, Vinnick’s gorgeous vocals ring with confidence…”– Ottawa Citizen

“Serving up a set where it shows she’s a long way from getting jaded and losing her mojo, this girl most likely to…has more chops than the meat department at the Costco warehouse. Blues, folk, rock? She’s got a toe in all those waters and handles them all with the ease of wrapping them around her little finger. A real blast of fresh air, this set hit’s the target every timeout. Killer stuff throughout.” – Midwest Record.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Special Guests: Harris&DeBray
The dynamic blues/roots duo Harris&DeBray is an offshoot of the popular Vancouver act Lesismore. Made up of singer Leslie Harris (vocals and percussion) and guitarist Curtis DeBray(acoustic guitar and vocals) it is wowing audiences in venues across the lower mainland with its hip renditions of traditional blues songs, some roots classics and new original music. Their first CD, “Passin’ Time” has been in the top 40 on Reverbnation’s Blues Chart since its release last year. Catch them at your local live venue soon cuz it’s always a good time!
