Warm the chilly night with 5Play

5Play will warm the autumn night on Nov. 6 with an evening of highly entertaining music

5Play will warm the autumn night on Nov. 6 with an evening of highly entertaining music brought to you from the heart of the Comox Valley.

The engaging musical group is the featured act at this month’s 1st Tuesday Fundraiser, a monthly concert series held at the Mex Pub where local musicians perform to raise money for a local charity. Admission is by donation, with this month’s proceeds supporting the Comox Valley Food Bank Society.

A fun-loving band, 5Play thrives on their eclectic repertoire. They deliver a mix of contemporary folk, blues, ballads, swing, and classic rock along with a liberal sprinkling of original tunes. With keyboards, guitars, mandolin, electric and stand-up bass and percussion, they share lead vocals and harmonies throughout their performances.

All members of the band live in Courtenay and are approaching their fourth winter of collaboration. With varied musical and performing backgrounds, they have created a dynamic blend that keeps their audience’s attention and anticipation for what the next song might bring.

Their obvious camaraderie and love of their music comes through in all their performances. 5Play is as comfortable playing at an intimate house concert as they are presenting a lively evening of listening and dancing, and their musical versatility makes them a local favourite.

“The warmth of their friendship on stage, the diversity of their music, great musicality, and the obvious enjoyment they get from playing together are just a joy to experience,” says organizer Judy Wing. “It’s a busy time of year, and we’re delighted that they’re taking time to perform for this fundraiser.”

To get to know 5Play with more information, photos and tunes, visit their website at www.5Play.ca.

The evening starts Nov. 6 at 7:30 with an opening set by hosts Judy and Bruce Wing, accompanied by violinist Blaine Dunaway.
