On behalf of everyone here at Tom Lee Music Canada, congratulations to all of the talented nominees, performers and winners who were featured at the 2018 Juno Awards! on Sunday, March 25 in our beautiful home city of Vancouver, BC. One quite moving highlight of the evening was a beautiful tribute performance to the late Gord Downie. Sarah Darmer sang a gorgeous rendition of "Introduce Yourself" with Kevin Hearn of The Barenaked Ladies accompanying her on a beautiful Yamaha grand piano provided by Tom Lee Music Canada.
Everyone in the house was delighted to see the incomparable Diana Krall performing on a gorgeous concert piano from Steinway & Sons, alongside 2018 JUNO Awards Ceremony host Michael Bublé! The pair had undeniable musical chemistry which made for an engaging and entertaining number. Diana added a touching sentiment that their duet was dedicated to both of their children and all of their loved ones.
The Barenaked Ladies were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and treated audience members to an epic finale performance featuring two of their hit songs, "If I Had a Million Dollars" and "One Week."
The Arkells brought the house down with their musical stylings, complete with pyrotechnics and even a sousaphone!
