I met with Adam Barter, a founding member of this talented West Shore group, to hear about new directions that they’re taking right now.
High Noon to Midnight consists of four guys who share the simple notion that music sounds better when you have a damn good time making it. The rock tunes they create reflect this idea and pay tribute to each member’s very different musical background and influences. Simply put, this is a band that you must see live. With soulful, emotionally-driven vocals and blistering saxophone solos, their creatively crafted songs take on a life of their own. High Noon to Midnight delivers the goods every time they hit the stage.

I met up with Jesse between tours on a rainy morning at the Broken Paddle Coffee Shop in Metchosin, BC. He’s unassuming, soft-spoken and just as approachable and as charming as his music.
Jesse Roper is the West Shore’s own versatile blues artist rooted in soul, rock and country. He’s a hardworking performer with a non-stop touring itinerary across North America. In the past few years, he’s quickly become a staple on modern rock radio and a major headliner at festivals such as Sunfest, Rifflandia and Rock the Shores. He’s shared the stage with many great artists and played direct support to Keith Urban, Lee Brice, Colin James, Spirit of the West, Tower of Power, Booker T Jones, Chilliwack, and others as well as older rock bands like ZZ Top, Steve Earle and Big Wreck. Incapable of holding back, Jesse always delivers with knock-out live performances, making him an unstoppable presence in the music industry today.
