Erik J. Matthews: Singer/Songwriter

Performer, guitar/bass instructor, session work, song writing.

Erik J. Matthews performs around the Fraser Valley for public and private events. Perhaps you caught a show at Party in the Park or Canada Day festivities, stopped by a local restaurant and enjoyed his guitar and duets over a meal, or even saw him perform in a local pumpkin patch. He seeks out new opportunities to share his song writing with those who enjoy hearing a lyric and listening to a melody. 

He can be found frequently hosting open jams around Chilliwack. Come to the Triple Play Pub every other Thursday, where each show is unique. The backing band, “The Endless Wire,” is always a new combination of seasoned players, giving jammers of different genres a chance to showcase their talents and giving the audience a wider range of styles to enjoy.

They are still accepting films through their submission process and are really hoping to have a bigger panel of locally made film content and First Nations content.

Bent Rods Guiding & Fishing Experience

If you've never had the opportunity to go fishing on the Fraser River, you are missing out on a lifetime experience. Chilliwack has plenty of fishing guides, but few have the same family based business and hospitality that Rod and Danena Toth offer.

Visit Bent Rods Here

Aside from Sturgeon fishing, Rod guides throughout the salmon and steelhead seasons, plus offers a wide variety of fishing rods and tackle. Best known for his custom tied jigs; just ask Rod about his twitching jigs when it comes time for Pink of Coho Salmon season.

Below you can see a brief example of spring fishing for Sturgeon:
