Looking for somewhere fun to go on a Friday night? Jilli Martini has teamed up with Billy D’s Pub in downtown Courtenay, combining weekly entertainment with their friendly service, great food and drink specials.

The fun began this past Friday and will continue every Friday night at Billy D’s Pub for music with Jilli Martini.

At Jilli Martini’s Friday Lounge, listeners can expect to hear a mixed bag of sultry blues, rock, old school country and some pop hits from many eras.

This popular Comox Valley singer is recognized for her ability to perform a broad range of styles and genres, primarily featuring favourite hits from the ’70s and ’80s, with some older and newer thrown in the mix as well.

Jill’s eclectic selections are often interpreted in acoustic versions, but she can be known for rocking it up pretty good, too!

Her versatility as a vocalist, and the natural way she engages her audience has made her a local favourite. She sets the room at ease with her relaxed style as she delivers each song with passion and conviction, appealing to folks of all ages and different musical tastes.

Jill is proud to be accompanied by accomplished guitarist Doug Biggs. She is also joined by her solid rhythm section, Blair Bentley on drums/percussion and Andre Forgues on bass guitar.

You never know what song Jill will pull out of the hat, from Dolly Parton’s Jolene to Guns and Roses’ Sweet Child of Mine.

Going to a show at the Sid Williams? Keep the evening going and walk on over for a drink and a bite and listen to some music after the show.

Now there’s something to do every Friday night on Fifth Street, putting the ‘beat’ into the heart of downtown Courtenay at nighttime. Music is from 8 to 11 p.m.

On Sept. 27, musical entertainment will be provided by Tom Walton and Anela Kahiamoe, as the Jilli Martini Band will be away that night.

Also to be noted, Friday nights are not an open mic night. The popular Saturday night open mic nights are still happening and hosted by Mitch Currie.
