Dale Seaman and Highway 97 will be at Princeton Racing Days on June 29, right after the races.

Dale Seaman’s love of music started his professional singing career in 2004.

Shortly thereafter he became the winner of the Okanagan Star Search (male vocal) in 2005.

Getting instant recognition for his talents as a performer, he delighted patrons at the Merritt Mountain Music Festival.

Since these humble beginnings, Dale has ‘wowed’ audiences in every part of the Western Provinces in Canada.

There is no limit to the heights of popularity that Dale has experienced because audiences simply love his sound.

Travelling up and down the Okanagan Valley, with his band consisting of the most versatile musicians, it would only seem logical that the band become Dale Seaman and Highway 97.

Encouraged by audiences from all over Western Canada, Dale released his first CD to satisfy the demand from his fans to make his music available everywhere he performed.

His first CD released in 2009 is entitled: Something I Had To Do featured three of Dale’s original songs awakening his spiritual song-writing talents. Listeners of radio and live performances, who have discovered Dale’s original creations, request these dance tunes to be performed over and over again. Dale’s song-writing skills compare equally to popular artists like Alana Jackson, Brad Paisley and Merle Haggard.

Dale features cover tunes with such ease, but captures and created his own brand and style of music, making him a welcome and refreshing Canadian Artist who will be recognized among the great performers in Country Music.

Here are some of the comments of what people are saying about Dale Seaman and Highway 97:

The Royal Canadian Legion – Branch #40, Penticton, BC says:

“Dale Seaman has been playing at our club for at least five years. He and his band are amazing and are the most requested entertainer that I bring in. Any event like a dinner or dance I book Dale as I know I’ll have a ‘sell out crowd,’”  Janet Beydak, entertainment chairman.

Army Navy Air Force Veterans of Penticton, BC says:

”As the lights go down and the music starts, Dale with his easy going and gentle demeanour suddenly turns into song-writer and singer. Then the dance floor erupts into a whirl of activity as he plays songs that he has written. Dale also sings many cover songs from all the old time country favourites. As I see it, Dale Seaman and his band Highway 97 are going to go a long way within the music industry. I would highly recommend any venue that has the opportunity to hire them for a night. It can only lead to positive results for their venue.” John Hudson, entertainment director

James Miller, managing editor of the Penticton Herald, calls Dale “Penticton’s Country Gentleman” during an interview for his CD release party on March 25, 2011.

Dale’s second CD is titled What’s in My Heart, as he continues his journey to please fans with his original songs as well as exploring other talented song writers.

Both CD’s are available online at www.dseaman.com or at his live performances which are listed on his website.
