Concerts for the Pier

The first in a series of Concerts for the Pier happened Thursday night at Memorial Park in White Rock. 2 great Canadian bands entertained a couple of thousand music lovers in an event organized by the White Rock BIA, in partnership with the City of White Rock. First up, it was Stonebolt Revisited, with 2 of the original Stonebolt members, Ray Roper and David Wills. They were joined by the amazing D.L. Car, who gave a taste of her tribute to Linda Ronstadt. After a brief intermission, it was time for Prism. Lead singer Al Harlow was suffering from a case of laryngitis, so he invited Shawn Klatt to come along and help out with the vocals. The crowd loved it, as the group put on a 90 minute show featuring the big hits of Prism. Spaceship Superstar, Armageddon, and Take me to the Kaptin. The Concert For the Pier series continues at 8 p.m. on July 14, with a street dance at Five Corners, featuring the band, Kalimba, with a salute to Each, Wind and Fire. Shows are free, but donations are being accepted to help with the restoration of the White Rock Pier.
