The Comox Valley’s second annual Grill ‘N Chill live music and barbecue is being held once again in Simms Millennium Park.
The venue is raising money for youth music in the valley. This year’s project is a weekend recording workshop being held at Joe’s Garage in Courtenay.
The event in the park is free and will feature an all-day live music performance and barbecue.
This year’s theme is to bridge the generation gap through music. The event will be senior-friendly with local youth to assist where needed.
Featured will be:
• The jazz stylings of Toronto’s Jessica Stuart on her Best In Summer Tour.
• Sean Burns with his country roots and pop music will stop by on his western tour.
• Calgary’s Heather Blush will be here to share her folk-styled blues.
The 12-hour show will feature a variety of styles and genres and will showcase our Valley’s talents, many of them up-and-coming local youth.
The event will start at 11 a.m. on Aug. 7 and run until 11 p.m.
Volunteers are needed to help set up and assist throughout the day and to help with teardown. If you have time and wish to help support music for youth in the Valley, call Milo at 250-702-6456.
