Elks features musical combo

This Thursday, the Elks’ stage in downtown Courtenay offers up another creative musical combo.

This Thursday, the Elks’ stage in downtown Courtenay offers up another creative musical combo.

Local crooner Ralph Barrat and saxman Tony Morrison have hinted there may be the addition of a surprise drummer.

The Elks’ summer music series continues to offer its audience unique musical experiences through the artistic freedom of performers. It is exciting to overhear someone from the audience, “Wow, look all these people coming out in the middle of summer.” The leather chairs and air-conditioning don’t hurt either. If all this doesn’t make you smile, Ralph’s infectious energy surely will. When Tony steps in on sax — you’ll forget all about petty things.

For your pleasure, the love of music brings these guys to the stage. Music is by donation.

The Elks’ is a non-profit organization serving local children and the needy in the community. What better way can there be to spend a Thursday night?

The Elks’ Club is located at 231 Sixth St. For more information, phone (250-334-2512.
