Anela and Friends play two shows in Comox

2 p.m. matinee as well as 7:30 evening performance, Saturday, Oct 17.

On the heels of last season’s sell-out performance, the Bates Beach Farm Music Series continues with “Anela & Friends.” The performance brings together a spectacular line-up of local musicians for a newly added 2 p.m. matinee performance as well as the original scheduled 7:30 evening performance, Saturday, Oct 17.

Anela will be joined by Wendy Nixon, Jenn Forsland, Oscar Robles Diaz and Brittany Bowman – some of our Valley’s stellar musicians.

“Each of these performers are incredible musicians who have dedicated their lives to music,” producer Rob Peterson said. “Together their combined talent multiples many times exponentially!”

Headlining the performances is Anela Kahiamoe. Since arriving in the Comox Valley from his native Hawaii, Anela has established himself as one of Vancouver Island’s premium musicians and entertainers. His multi-faceted talent is extensive with beautiful vocals and musicianship on guitar, ukulele and lap steel.

Anela is joined by Forsland, an active teacher and performer in the Comox Valley.

Also joining the group for these performances is well-known music teacher and choir director Wendy Nixon Stothert. Another featured popular local musician is Mexican born multi-instrumentalist Oscar Robles Diaz.

As a guitarist/ drummer/percussionist/accompanist, Oscar is equally skilled in salsa, Latin, blues, rock and all styles in between.

Bowman, an exceptional bassist and vocalist, is a recording artist, performer, and composer, born and raised in the Comox Valley.

Net profits from the concession this year is being directed to the Comox Valley Child Development Society with concession net profits being matched by the generous support of Sunwest RV.

The Bates Beach Farm Music series is made possible by the generous volunteer and financial support of the Obal family, Grace, Mike and Ben along with the talents of a team of behind the scenes volunteers.

Matinee afternoon performance begins at 2 with doors open at 1:30. Matinee tickets are $15 advance and $18 at the door.

The evening performance begins at 7:30 with doors open at 7. Evening performance tickets are $18 (advance)/$20 (door). Youth (under 18) tickets for all performances are $8. Advance ticket outlets are Bop City in Courtenay along with Red Carpet Boutique and Scorpio’s Hair Salon in Comox.
