Live Entertainment 2018
Vinyl Feedback is a Power Trio of hip cats that play a wide variety of music featuring alternative rock, pop, classic rock, dance hits, reggae, funk and blues.
The Palace Band was born from an era of rum smugglers and late night cabaret, when music bubbled with swinging emotion and soul. The raw sounds of old school jazz return with an energy that will put your feet into motion and a smile on every face, combining soaring vocals with a flash of trumpet and the thunder of drums to make the old time new again.
Put your stompin' boots on and come dance under the stars to the most beautiful scenery you will see on our large, spacious deck!
Four cats who love music and play a lil bit of every genre... reggae, funk, jazz, blues, country, rock n roll, alternative, oldies-goldies, motown, stax and everything in between!
Vinyl Feedback is a Vancouver Island Power cover band with influences from the '70's, 80s, '90s and more!
The ENABLERS are an explosive 4-piece dance band that knows a thing or two about working the room and entertaining the crowd. They play Rock, Blues, Reggae, Country, Southern Rock, Blues Rock, Disco and more!
Stripped down and folky, Lindy Vopnfjörd plucks his acoustic guitar sensitively to songs about courageous stories of freedom champions, Vikings, and the love for his wife. An evening of melodious folk music sung from the heart.
Makeke Marimba is a vibrant, energetic dance band from Lasqueti Island, B.C. Instruments include seven wooden marimbas ( 3 sopranos, 2 tenors, a baritone and a bass), mbira, gourd hoshos, drums, assorted percussion, and voices. The marimbas were built on Lasqueti Island by members of the band.
Quirky and captivating, songwriter and scientist Sarah Beatty sounds a bit like Dusty Springfield coming off a science bender. She a voice as sharp as a silver-spur and dangerous as a diamond-backed sidewinder, this is a performance you do not want to miss!
NORSE'S THORN is a unique rock band from Victoriaville Quebec. Featuring strong vocals, interesting acoustic guitar arrangements mixed with dynamic beets and violin ear candy.
John Pippus is a songwriter and a story teller. He bends words as easily as he bends notes on his harmonica and he plays his guitar like he stole it. Sure to be a stellar evening of entertainment.
Past Entertainment 2017:
Saturday, June 10th, 2017
- Start time: 8:30 p.m. - no cover
For the past 10 years the band called BURNT has doggedly been playing their soulful blend of reggae, ska, punk and hip-hop music at venues large and small across the west coast of North America. Building on the D.I.Y. culture of many influential punk and reggae bands before them, BURNT has managed their own tours, from Tijuana, Mexico to Victoria, B.C., and independently released 7 diverse albums of original material.
Over a decade of refinement BURNT's live sound has been distilled to its essence: raw throat, steady rhythms and a bass-heavy soul. The sound of BURNT's albums, in contrast, weaves heady lyrics with seemingly endless variants of roots driven musical styles into a sound that, while laced with touches of the familiar, is distinctly BURNT. Strap on your dancing boots and groove to one of the best in the California reggae music scene. Visit their website.

Cascading soundscapes blended with acoustic guitars, poppy vocals and synthy undertones. Kirby's second solo departure, the self titled "Kirby" welcomes a full sound that is anything but lonesome.
Fronting Burlington, Ontario prog-rock band ‘First Time Fallen’ for several years, Kirby released his first solo EP “Within These Walls” in 2007 before taking the figurative plunge with his next EP “The Good Fight”, in 2008.
Hitting the road for the first many solo tours across Canada and Europe as well as performances in Australia and the US, whether solo or with a band, Kirby displays his true passion, belting out emotional lyrics right from the bottom of his heart, coupled with the diversity of both a driving rock strum style and quiet thoughtful picking on the guitar. Visit Kirby's site.

Come on folks, let’s celebrate THE MESS!

Quirky and captivating, songwriter and scientist Sarah Beatty sounds a bit like Dusty Springfield coming off a science bender. With her new album Bandit Queen reaching #1 in Canada’s National Roots Charts and her debut album Black Gramophone having been nominated for a Hamilton Music Award, Sarah's got a knack for approaching complicated topics with warmth and wit.

She has played major Canadian festivals such as Summerfolk and Mariposa and listening venues such as The Bluebird Café in Nashville, TN and Ani Difranco’s Babeville in Buffalo, NY.
