The very special four-performance fall music series “Live at Fanny Bay Hall” features some of the finest musicians and bands in our region. It’s a wonderful way to spend a Saturday evening at our beautifully renovated Fanny Bay Hall.
On the heels of a packed house for the first concert in the four-concert series, the Fanny Bay Hall Community Association presents Anela Kahiamoe and his band The Experimenters on Saturday, Oct. 10 at 7 p.m.
Expect this band to deliver a memorable evening of music ranging from blues, Hawaiian, jazz, rock and Anela originals.
A native of Hawaii and veteran of the Honolulu music scene, Kahiamoe has been a professional musician his entire life. His popularity in the Comox Valley is phenomenal and his musical talent extensive, with beautiful vocals and fantastic skills on guitar, ukulele and the Hawaiian lap steel.
The Experimenters is loaded with first class local musicians, including Claudio Fontinato, one of Vancouver Island’s finest saxophone and clarinet musicians whose solo skills are absolutely incredible and performed with effortless mastery.
On keyboards and vocals is the well known and highly talented Ralph Barrat. On stand-up and electric bass is the highly-skilled Grahame Edwards, and rounding out the rhythm section is Rob Peterson on drums.
The unique blend of instruments, fine musicianship of this band and warm stage presence of Kahiamoe will draw you into an awesome evening of live music.
