This year’s free Grill & Chill concert has drawn a small army of talented musicians from off Island as well as local Comox Valley performers.
Headliners include premium entertainers the Jessica Stuart Few, the Sean Burns Band, Heather Blush, the Lonely Guys as well as local favourite the Luke Guthrie Band.
Another dozen entertainers have signed onto the musical fundraising event in support of youth music in the Valley. This is the place to come if you want to see some of the best entertainment that our Comox Valley has to offer.
Included in the day-long production is: Alexandria Maillot, Slipped Disk, Things With Strings, Glenn Mitchell, Alan Jossul and Leslie Eaton, Spiral Sun, Maryka Imagine Kranabetter, Sam Lennox and Mary Lyn DesRoches, Rachael Sawatzky, Jammer, Mike Bloomfield, Mark Crissinger and the Jenn Forsland Group.
The event will be held Sunday in Simms Millennium Park on Fifth Street in Courtenay with performances in the bandstand from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
There will be a barbecue, with proceeds from the sales going towards a weekend recording and production workshop for youth musicians and technicians in the Valley.
There will be a shelter set up with seating for seniors and others requiring shade. This is a senior-friendly day that embraces communication between seniors and youth through music.
This event is supported by many caring local businesses, and organizers thank them for their contributions.
