Who's Steering This Tour:
Meet the Team
Say hello to Mike Rikley – the Captain of Cascadia Tours. With his finance degree in one hand and a decade of property management under his belt, Mike knows the difference between a balance sheet and a guitar sheet. Oh, did we mention he's a guitar hero too?
Back in the day, Mike was wheeling and dealing records at A&B Sound, soaking up all the good vibes. Today, he's the co-manager and star performer of Roadhouse, a country music cover band that's all the rage locally.
In 2023, Mike put on his entrepreneurial hat. Drawing from his family's five-year stint in the bustling tour scene of Kelowna, BC, he revved up Cascadia Tours. Now, he's bringing his own blend of business acumen, music love, and community spirit to the local touring industry. Let's roll!
