Pop Junkies

The Pop Junkies will be offering multiple performances at the Hard Rock Casino of Vancouver to provide Vancouverites and visiting tourists with high quality entertainment. The Pop Junkies are a well known band which performs throughout the West Coast of North America. The professional musicians are a favourite Vancouver casino entertainment act and their performances are always sell-out events. Therefore, Hard Rock Casino suggests that patrons book their tickets in advance.

The Pop Junkies are a Cover Band. They perform their large repertoire of rock, country and pop songs which span the favourites of the last 50 years. Pop Junkies limit their appearances to the West Coast where they are a highly-sought-after act, appearing at special events, exclusive venues and as part of casino entertainment packages. The band’s five members, Craig Allen Olson, Jordan Burgess, Todd Araki, Scotty McCargar and Craig Dong have been playing together since 1997. They work, periodically, with other well-known entertainers but their success has mainly come via their own performances which appeal to adult contemporary, rock, pop and country music fans.

Pop Junkies has released several of its own CDs which are available for purchase at music stores as well as at their local performances.
