Herb Dixon Live in Penticton

November 9, 2019


You don’t get to pick your own nickname, and when you can impersonate a Harley Davidson better than anyone in the world, like Herb Dixon can, you get the best nickname ever, “The Harley Guy”.


He performed at the massive 17,000 seat grandstand show at the Calgary Stampede not once, but twice in 2002 and 2005. In 2003 Herb was invited to put his Harley Davidson impression to the test by none other than Harley Davidson themselves, at the 100-year anniversary event in Milwaukee, sharing the stage with BB King. Herb impressed the tough biker crowd and knew for certain; his Harley impression was as good as they get.


Time: Doors open at 7:30pm, show at 8:00pm

Price: $20 (plus tax & fees)
