Get ready to move Thursday night.
This evening is going to rock at Performances in the Park.
Two headliner acts playing back to back are a must watch.
Perfect Match, our very own cross-over country/pop/light rock band with lively originals will entertain starting at 6 p.m. in Boitanio Park.
They are a versatile dance band that is easy on the ear and good for the heart.
At 7 p.m. Mohamed Assani, a celebrated sitar player who has performed across the globe including UK, Europe, Canada, USA and Dubai will light up the park with gripping Sitar music.
“His playing is fierce, resolute and gripping. There’s no denying that this is extraordinary music” – Georgia Straight.
