Live Nation is excited to present Jon and Roy

It’s easy to fall for the effortless, amiable charm of Jon Middleton and Roy Vizer.
Seasoned musicians and long time friends, their brand of indie folk rock is a genre in
itself; one that evokes freewheeling summer days, winding stretches of road, the pull of
the journey. With over 50 million streams worldwide, it’s clear many others have been
captivated by Jon and Roy and the stories they tell.

Jon and Roy’s live shows are well known for Middleton’s stirring performances coupled
with Vizer’s instinctive rhythm and impeccable time keeping. In recent tours, the
inclusion of a horn section have lifted these performances to even greater heights; it’s
not uncommon to see packed venues turn into sweaty, joy-filled dance parties. As
restrictions gradually lift, it will be to more of these sell out crowds that Jon and Roy
return to. With their eyes on new audiences and bigger venues, both in Canada and
Europe, their return to live performance will be all the sweeter after this enforced long
absence.

Of course, these west coast troubadours are no stranger to big crowds and life on the
road. They've toured with Xavier Rudd, the Cat Empire, Trevor Hall, and Toots and the
Maytals, headlined sell-out shows at iconic Vancouver venue The Commodore Ballroom,
and have played festivals across Canada (Edmonton Folk Festival, Winnipeg Folk
Festival, Ottawa Bluesfest), the USA (BottleRock, CA, Levitate Music Festival, MA) Europe
(Bulli Summer Festival, Germany, Sziget Festival, Hungary, Rock Les Bains, France) and
the UK (Boardmasters). The band shines in front of a live audience, but it's not the only
avenue in which Jon and Roy have garnered new fans. Canny song placements in TV
shows on HBO, NBC, MTV and OLN, combined with long running TV ad campaigns for
Lululemon, Volkswagen and Scotiabank, have further cemented their global reputation.
