This Sam Cooke concert tribute contributes significant benefits to our community, and we are inviting you to participate in communicating the date, time, place of this show 'Soul King' at the Cowichan Centre for the Performing Arts on September 29th at 2PM. Tickets available of Written and directed by Michael Clarke of 'Rock Legends' & 'Kim's Convenience' (Chemainus Theatre), this unique production depicts the life and music of Sam Cooke, commonly referred to as “The King of Soul”. The first four shows were performed at the Osborne Bay Pub and the response was overwhelming. Consequently, by ‘popular demand’, four additional shows were performed and played with passion to packed houses.

For the Duncan production, lead singer and storyteller Michael Clarke will again be joined by the “Crofton Songbird” Glaucia Desroches, acclaimed for her interpretations of blues legend Billie Holiday. The back-up musicians are consummate professionals, well known and respected throughout the industry. While 'Soul King' has its roots in the Cowichan Valley, its potential is unlimited.

There are Community BENEFITS too: 'Soul King' is presented by Cedrick’s Coffee & Tea House in Crofton – a registered Community Contribution Company that donates its profits to Vancouver Island charity KIDS International
