How it was on Friday September 20, 2017:

We had a first time performance and even a brass section, thanks to Richard and Jack.

Friday, June 21, 2019 Open Stage – How it Was

Posted by on Jun 28, 2019 | 0 comments

We had a surprisingly large turnout of both listeners and performers. A big surprise visit was from Julio from Columbia, who is here for the summer and played guitar, ukulele and a beat box. It was a special treat to see and hear his performance. We were a bit anxious since 3 of our mainstays for the production were away for the evening. Thanks to Carol for filling in to run the coffee shop and Gord to set up and run the sound system. The rest of us were busier than usual too. That will be our last Open stage night until we start up again on Friday, September 20th. Our performers on June 21, 2019 were
1. Lawrence Cresswell
2. Bob Cutler & Sue Cutler – The Pluckin’ Cutlers
3. Julio Victor Zapata (Medellin, Columbia) – NEW
4. Barb Scott
5. David Maranta
6. Gord, Lynne & Don
7. Jakki Annerino
8. Matthias Schonlau
