Popular local musician Anela Kahiamoe takes to the stage at the Little Red Church on Feb. 21 with his new six-piece band.

Anela’s popularity with music fans and musicians in the Valley is unparalleled. A native of Hawaii and a professional musician his entire life, Anela’s musical talent is extensive and includes beautiful vocals and fantastic skills on guitar, lap steel and ukulele.

For the Feb. 21 performance, Anela has selected a broad range of popular jazz standards as well as a selection of blues, country and some Anela originals.

The band includes four-time CCMA-nominated pedal steel musician Evan Ehgoetz, who will masterfully blend his instrument into the repertoire.

Originally from Ontario and now residing in Powell River, Evan has worked for the who’s-who of the Canadian country music scene. He has opened for and shared the stage with the likes of Conway Twitty, Bill Anderson, Kitty Wells, Allan Jackson, George Strait and Keith Urban.

Claudio Fontinato resides in Parksville and is one of Vancouver Island’s finest tenor and alto sax players. Claudio is a graduate of Berklee College of Music and has been playing and

performing for 30 years. Claudio’s command of the instrument is  astounding and his solo work incredible.

Rounding out the band is Kelly Thomas on keyboard, Grahame Edwards on bass and Rob Peterson on drums.

The Little Red Church is a family-friendly venue, serving tea, coffee, soft drinks and goodies.

Advance tickets are available at Bop City in Courtenay and the Red Carpet Boutique in Comox at the corner of Anderton and Comox avenues.
