The Dream Cafe hosts Dylan Menzie
In April of 2019 one of our beloved venue partners, The Dream Cafe in Penticton, was able to bring in an incredibly talented singer songwriter for an intimate, no-cover live performance thanks to a grant from us here at Music Lottery. That artist is Dylan Menzie, who you have definitely heard playing on our country’s very own CBC Radio 2 with his single “Kenya”.
Back in 2016, Dylan became a finalist in CBC’s annual Searchlight competition, and the single you can listen to above spent two weeks at number 1 on their Top 20 list leading up to the release of his 2016 album Adolescent Nature. Dylan has performed alongside acts like City & Colour and Ron Sexsmith, and at major events like Canadian Music Week and the Edmonton Folk Festival, which makes it so cool that we were able to help bring him to a small community venue like the Dream Cafe!
We also love that Dylan hails from PEI, because our dream is to one day bring live music events to underserved communities across the country. For now, we’re thrilled to be able to support venues in our home province of British Columbia.

This magical evening took place at one of our favourite venues, the Dream Cafe. Check them out the next time you’re in Penticton! You can even pick up some Music Lottery tickets while you’re there to help them fund their next community concert. 😉
