The Dukes of Dodge celebrate their fourth anniversary with a St. Patrick's Day gig Saturday at the Waverley

The Dukes of Dodge celebrate their fourth anniversary with a St. Patrick’s Day gig Saturday at the Waverley — the site of the band’s first show when it formed four years ago.

“Here we are four years later,” said Kevin Flesher, also known as Trashy Duke, frontman of Cumberland’s own hillbilly pirate swamp orchestra. The lineup also features Gooey, Sweety, Pinky and Squeaky, along with special guest Anela Kahiamoe.

This year’s concert features a limerick contest.

The Dukes will be joined by a 12-piece samba band, Samba Du Soleil of Salt Spring Island, which plays Brazilian carnival music. Doors open at 9:30 p.m.

Samba Du Soleil will host a free samba drumming workshop Sunday at 2 p.m. at Tsolum School at 2505 Smith Rd. at the Old Island Highway. The workshop is sponsored by Navigate Fine Arts Academy.
