5Play will warm up the autumn night on Oct. 20 with a show in the comfort of Joe’s Garage on Fifth Street in Courtenay.

The evening will celebrate the release of their first CD, recorded ‘live’ at the Cumberland United Church last November.

5Play thrives on an eclectic repertoire. They deliver a mix of blues, ballads, contemporary folk, swing, old jazz standards and a liberal sprinkling of original tunes.

With keyboards, guitars, mandolin, electric and standup bass and percussion, they share lead vocals and harmonies throughout their performances.

All members of the band live in Courtenay and came together almost three years ago from entirely different musical and performing backgrounds. Their obvious camaraderie and love of the music they share comes through clearly in their performances.

A few of 5Play’s performing highlights include a packed Valentine’s dance at d’Esterre House in Comox, the Sierra Club’s Spring Fling, the food bank fundraiser at the Mex Pub and the honour of playing at the closing ceremony at the 2010 Seniors’ Games at the Florence Filberg Centre. They have played throughout the Comox Valley — with road trips from Malcolm Island to Port Alberni.

5Play delivers rhythm, drive and emotion. Music to move you!

Joe’s Garage is open for dinner, snacks and drinks, and the show starts at 8:30. Call Milo for details and reservations at 250-702-6456.

Tickets are available at Bop City Records at 211 Simms St. (250-338-66210. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
