Harbour Author to Carry Olympic Torch


Posted: February 10, 2010

Help cheer on Dal Richards, who will be an Olympic Torchbearer on Friday, February 12 on Day 106 of the Torch Relay. He will be running with the Torch in downtown Vancouver, along Robson to Thurlow Street, starting at 8:30am.

Dal is the co-author of One More Time! The Dal Richards Story (with Jim Taylor). It details Dal’s fascinating life, from his beginnings as a clarinet player in the Kitsilano Boys Band to leading the Dal Richards Orchestra in nightly gigs at the Panorama Roof through to his memories of the stars he met and befriended in the days when Vancouver’s nightclub scene rivalled San Francisco’s, and Hollywood’s big-name performers made it a regular tour stop.

Dal and his band will also be performing at the following sites during the 2010 Olympics:

     • Wednesday, February 17th 5:30-7:00 pm - at the Richmond O-Zone
     • Sunday, February 21st 6:00-7:00 pm - LiveCity Yaletown in Vancouver 
     • Friday, February 26th 6:30-9:00 pm - West Vancouver Celebration Site
