Oak Lake band Prairie Joe at the Canadian Gospel Music Awards in Edmonton on Saturday, Jan. 27. They were nominated in two categories, Best New Artist and Best Southern Gospel / Country Album. Although they didn’t win, they did enjoy a surprise of sorts: Dr. Jay Biber, a Winnipeg dentist, flew in to attend the awards surprising his friend and fellow dentist Dr. Joe Thiessen. Biber (centre) is flanked by (l-r) Prairie Joe’s Russell, Robert, Michael and Joe Thiessen.
