Last night, the Big Ol’ JACK Airliner made its way out to the Abbotsford Centre with a busload of JACK listeners for a great night of Classic Rock. And boy oh boy, Peter Frampton and Steve Miller did not disappoint.


The 67-year-old Frampton was first up, and his youthful energy was apparent from the very start. He did a great job of getting the crowd revved up with his signature guitar and talkbox mastery. His banter between songs was also a highlight; turns out Peter Frampton is a pretty funny guy. And Frampton wasn’t the only master on display, his drummer Dan Wojciechowski was almost equally awesome!


The crowd really enjoyed his big hits (“Show Me The Way”, “Baby I Love Your Way”) and he finished his set with some early songs he recorded with his first band Humble Pie. But the highlight was probably his talkbox cover of Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun” and Frampton’s touching tribute to Chris Cornell. Check out a snippet below:


Is it just us, or does everything sound cooler through a talkbox?


After a short break, Steve Miller took the stage. With his trademark white stallion unfurled on a giant banner behind him, Miller went through hit after hit after hit during his 22 song set. Highlights included a three-song mini Blues set with Peter Frampton and one of our JACK favourites, ABRACADBRA!





All in all, it was a great night of music at the Abbotsford Centre. We need to take the JACK bus out there more often!
