The Little Red Church in Comox on Saturday

Anela brings an all-star cast with him to the Little Red Church.

There is a stellar musician lineup as “Anela & Friends” perform at The Little Red Church in Comox on Saturday.

Anela will be joined by Sue Medley, Luke Blu Guthrie, Jim Papp and Oscar Robles Diaz.

Performance organizer Rob Peterson comments:

“All locals of the Comox Valley, these are some of British Columbia’s finest musicians, all of whom have dedicated their lives to music,” he says.

Headlining the performance is Anela Kahaimoe. Since arriving in the Comox Valley from Hawaii, Anela has established himself as one of Vancouver Island’s premium entertainers.

Anela will be joined by Sue Medley, whose musical career has taken her to the highest levels of performance in the music industry.

Luke “Blu” Guthrie is another sensational hometown musician who will join Anela with his soulful style, poignant melodies and masterful guitar picking. This 2012 VIMA nominated “Songwriter of the Year” will bring his distinctive stage presence and alternative roots beat to the stage.

On percussion will be Latin specialist, Oscar Robles Diaz. Born in Mexico City and a graduate of classical and contemporary guitar studies at Mexico’s National University.

Oscar has studied extensively with master percussionists and guitar instructors and was the first place winner in Mexico City’s “Battle of Guitarists” . Oscar’s percussion mastery will provide an excellent foundation to this stellar lineup of musicians.

Another hometown boy taking the stage with Anela is Jim Papp. Jim’s musical roots date back to the early 1970s, when he formed a band “Comox” with Edwin Grieve and Paul Stephens. The band produced a Top 10 Canadian hit “Country Hooka”. Yet another amazing local musician, he is still performing and producing from his home studio, having recently produced Anela’s album “Through the Years”
