“ I think there’s a little bit of the outlaw in all of us,” observed Pritchett off the first date of the tour in Victoria, which features a show every night from Victoria to  Saskatoon and  ending in Lloydminster on Jan. 31.

“It’s really high energy from start to finish. The boys are new on the scene. They don’t have any music on the radio yet, but we’re working on a recording but they have great songs. Cory Marquardt is definitely a southern rock country kind of guy with long hair flying everywhere. The ladies love him and his music is great. And I come on and  do my show which I’ve been doing. I’ve been doing my own thing for years,” he said adding this is his first headlining tour he has booked on his own.

“There are always lots of fine details to work out and more details to work out at each show. But it all comes together when we’re on stage. But once the boys and Cory do their  show and it works out  fine, all I have to do is  my show,” he said adding, so far the experience has been  a blast.
“ They are all excited, playing every night, being on the bus together and checking into hotels late at night,” he said.
“We just played our first show in Victoria and now we’re going to Courtenay, north of Nanaimo and we’ll have a lot more to go before we get to Lethbridge,” he said adding the tour is the culmination of six to eight months planning.

 The biggest highlight for him has been working with his son.

“He’s like me. He’s a rocker. But he has a lot of knowledge of old country. He’s been playing in the pop rock vein with Faber Drive for the past six years. So he’s been living in that world for a while, Pritchett said observing  his son and King and Cash bandmate Dan Arnold have excellent chemistry on stage as well as great songs.
“It’s been great to be a mentor with him and hang out with him  on the bus. He’s learning a lot from me,” he said he is also learning a lot from his son, especially in the recording process.

“He’s been living in the pop world for a few years now. And  in a lot of ways country is becoming more pop So he’s bringing all of these new ideas that I’d never considered, like using  computer samples or different loops and even different instruments like a didgeridoo. So he’s learning a lot from me and I’m learning some things from him,” he said.
 They don’t actually perform a duet together on the tour.

“ But I bring the whole group up on stage  for the encore which turns into something pretty cool, but you have to come to the show to see it,” he said.

“ It’s a high energy from start to finish so hopefully it will end leaving everybody wanting more,” Pritchett said.

 He noted  all three groups have a very active social media presence so he encouraged   fans to check out their Facebook and Twitter.
 The Average Joes show begins at 8 p.m.., Jan. 26
 Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 on the day of the show.
