Rock band Chilliwack rocked White Rock B.C. last night, part of a series of concerts sponsored by TD Bank, the City of White Rock, White Rock Business Improvement Assoc. ReMax and Blue Frog Studios. The concerts are FREE and will be held on Marine Drive Thursdays from 7:00 – 10:00pm, with two special Saturday shows: July 15th in the Five Corners shopping district of uptown White Rock, and the grand finale at the beach on August 19th. Over a thousand attended the outdoor concert last night. Bill Henderson and the band were amazing, and thankfully the weather co-operated to help make it a perfect Summer evening! Next up, the R&B All Stars, on July 15th at 5 Corners, a street party, part of the annual Bike Race, the Tour de White Rock.
I had the chance to MC a special presentation for the White Rock Business Improvement Association today, held at the Blue Frog Studios in White Rock B.C. It was to announce the lineup of bands performing at the 2017 TD Concerts by the Pier, happening this Summer. Outdoor concerts by the Pier by headliners, Chilliwack, Eagle Eyes, Led Zepagain, Little Destroyer and Platinum Blonde! And a street dance at Five Corners with the R&B All Stars. It’s going to be quite a Summer for music in White Rock!
The Authentics rocked a sold out house at the Blue Frog Studios in White Rock last night! Six musicians with amazing credentials put on an incredible inaugural performance. The group consists of, Rocket Norton of the Rocket Norton Band, Seeds of Time, and Prism. Skip Prest of Sweeney Todd, Al Harlow of Seeds of Time and Prism, John Hall, Seeds of time and Prism, Ab Bryant of Chilliwack, and Ray Ayotte, percussion specialist and drum maker. 70’s era music like Roxy Roller and Spaceship Superstar brought back a lot of great memories. If that’s your era, you don’t want to miss The Authentics, next gig is at the Cottage Bistro on Main Street in Vancouver March 18th. Rock On!!
