Dal's Latest Press
Dal Richards is Mr. New Year's
By Martha Perkins
Dal Richards is sitting on a leather couch in his three-storey loft in Gastown. While his wife Muriel slips downstairs to answer an email about one of his upcoming gigs and the photographer sets up his equipment, Richards is talking to Dawn Chubai about what it’s like to perform together on stage.
“You make me feel so young,” the bandleader says to Chubai, the Breakfast TV host who moonlights as one of Dal’s Gals.
Chubai smiles, channels her inner Frank Sinatra and sings, “You make me feel so young… you make me feel there are songs to be sung.”
