There are almost 2 decades' worth of memories to celebrate for Barney Bentall & The Cariboo Express! The annual variety show has become a favourite event in Western Canada, building a tradition and warming the hearts of all ages of audiences while contributing to worthwhile causes.
The Cariboo Express is a 12+ piece ‘Western music’ style band led by platinum selling and Juno Award winning singer and guitarist Barney Bentall. The beloved hit songwriter formed the ensemble in 2005 with his son Dustin as a way to bring generations of musicians together to raise funds and awareness for the charities and services that are needed in our communities.
Hosted by Barney and Calgary singer-songwriter Matt Masters, an evening with The Cariboo Express guarantees unparalleled entertainment by showcasing some of Canada’s finest roots and country musicians.
At the heart of The Cariboo Express' unforgettable performances are their renowned 'Song Sponsorship' segments, whereby a singer or song is introduced with a witty monologue that cleverly incorporates the name or slogan of a sponsoring partner.
In partnership with well-organized and motivated charities, local sponsor champions and a community of activated donors, The Cariboo Express has raised over 5 million dollars.
