No good vibe zone in Canada

Postby Lee_M_Jay on Tue Oct 19, 2010 2:47 pm

Some days I feel like I'm the only true Jamiroquai fan in this tiny province of Nova Scotia, Canada. Possibly even in all of Canada for all I know.

I first came across Jamiroquai's music a good several years ago at a used goods store. In an old worn, beaten and scratched CD case was a copy of Jamiroquai's 1999 album Synkronized. I bought it for only $1.00! (Sadly, this copy didn't have the hidden Deeper Underground track on it). This was my very first Jamiroquai album.

A few years later, a friend gave me a copy of their 1996 album, Travelling Without Moving, for my birthday. This copy didn't have Do You Know Where You're Coming From or Funktion on it. But this one was my second Jamiroquai album.

It wasn't until just last year, when my brother gave me his copy of their 2005 album, Dynamite, that I eventually fully fell in love with Jamiroquai's music, and became a dedicated Jamiroquai fan.

Earlier this year, I ordered Emergency on Planet Earth and The Return of the Space Cowboy from Amazon, and ordered A Funk Odyssey and the Australian version of Travelling Without Moving (with DYKWYCF and Funktion) from the local HMV.

But now, I'm finding it hard to talk about music with people around where I live. Around here, hardly anybody knows about Jamiroquai, let alone are they able to spell or pronounce it. Even the biggest music stores around here look at me like I have ten heads when I ask about Jamiroquai, and almost always ask me to spell it for them.

Jamiroquai are a big source of inspiration for me. But it seems there's little to no fanbase here for them, besides myself. I know the chances of Jamiroquai playing live in Canada, let alone Nova Scotia, is slim to nill. But I hope that some day they are willing to give it a chance. I would give almost anything to see a live Jamiroquai concert.

Anyways. That's my story, and I just wanted to share it. Not sure if this is the right section of the forum for it, but if it needs to be moved, go ahead.

Good vibes to everyone. Peace.

Hi Lee!
Welcome to the forum!
Thanks a lot for sharing your personal story! Please believe me if I say I know how you feel!
I remember feeling very alone with my addiction...that´s why I came here ..to the forum.
The internet gives us the opportunity to find people who share a same interest!And it´s great fun to share the happiness and excitement. :D

For the concerts..I don´t know if they would come to canada for the tour..but there is a good chance they come to America!
Maybe you can try to save up some money and fly down there? Just a thought! Lots of fans are travelling around to see as many concerts as possible..and if you REALLY want it..you can make it happen!

all the best and see you around :D

Welcome Lee,
This is the place to talk Jamiroquai if you can't find others! :lol:

I think you'll need to look out for NY, NY shows and travel from Novia Scotia.
I'm sure they'll hit New York City.

Hi!

I didnt read all the replies on this post cuz... they were too many! But just be reading the tiltle of the thread, it reminded me of one of my biggest wishes for 2011: that Jamiroquai comes for Jazz Festival in Montreal, Canada! Oh, God, since I moved here from Brazil - 2 years ago - that's all I've been thinking about. That would be incredibly amazing. I think of them in that Jazz fest in Montreaux, and how much it would make sense that they came to this huge fest in Montreal in summer. Just perfetct. New album, 2011, summer, jazz fest. This city becomes something else in summer. With Jamiroquai, it would be quite a thing.

I'm hoping! Deep inside my heart.

It probably does, but why not change airs a little bit and come enjoy the Montreal Jazz Fest too? It doesnt even sound that different. :P And Montreal is sooo amazing in summer :)

Thanks for telling me about editing the post, Giba! I'm still learning about all this ;)
