Blue Rodeo at Elks

Remember the Harry Chapin Tribute Band of two years ago?

The Blue Rodeo Tribute Band was such a hit when they played at the Elks in Courtenay on Aug. 23 they have been asked to come back on Sept. 6  for a second performance.

For those of you who didn’t make it to the band’s first performance, band members are: Richard Thompson on vocals, guitar and mandolin, Glenn Gark on vocals and guitar, Brian Morissette on vocals and guitar, Linda Safford on keyboards, David Burke on bass and Robb Flannery on drums.

Remember the Harry Chapin Tribute Band of two years ago?  There are some familiar faces in the Blue Rodeo Tribute Band.

For those of you who were part of the very appreciative audience on Aug. 23, here’s a second chance to hear some fabulous music performed by these very talented local musicians.

The music starts Thursday at 7:30 and if you want a good seat you should plan to arrive early at the Elks in downtown Courtenay.

Admission is by donation, with a suggested donation of $10 per person.  For more information, call Richard at 250-338-0365 or Karen at the Elks at 250-334-2512.
