Musician Jeremy Dallas is set to play Lloydminster this weekend, bringing his blend of classic rock and country to audiences at Ezzie’s on the Border on Dec. 19 and 20.

Dallas said the objective of his performances is to keep people’s spirits high and keep them moving.

“It’s always high energy, there’s a lot of dancing all the time. All my music is oriented towards the dance floor,” he said. “That’s kind of my goal is to keep people out on the dance floor, keep them happy, have a good time. I like to make them sweat a little bit.”

The singer and guitar player, who’s been performing for 16 years now, will be releasing his first album late in 2015. He says his audiences range from 18-year-olds to fans in their 70s and when coming up with his setlist he tries to adjust accordingly, while throwing in a few originals, to please his varied fan base.

“It’s difficult at times, but I find if you mix it up a little bit, you have a couple new hits then you throw in an older one, it keeps everyone happy,” said Dallas. “There’s a science to it.”

The P.E.I. native came by music honestly, growing up in a family of serious musicians. Both his parents played music as well as most of his aunts and uncles, one uncle of which even played fiddle with Stompin’ Tom Connors.

“My uncle actually went on tour with Lee Aaron, the metal queen of the ‘80s. Then my dad was always into country and then he changed to top 40 for the longest time. He’s been doing music since before I was born,” he said.

Dallas describes his style as “bad-ass country” and says people who come out to the show can expect to have an awesome experience.

“Definitely expect it to be a lot of dancing. A lot of drinks. Probably lots of laughs and just overall a great experience,” he said.
