The performances in Boitanio Park this Thursday evening will deliver a mix of music from light rock to Latin influences.

“If you are looking for a rocking, dancing, singing-along good time this is your night to come out and watch,” says concert series organizer Angela Sommer.

Perfect Match with Cindy Lightfoot and LeRae Haynes are on stage at 6 p.m. playing cross-over country/pop/light rock with some lively original tunes thrown in for good measure.

“This is a crowd favourite versatile dance band – easy on the ear and good for the heart,” Sommer says.

“Cindy Lightfoot and LeRae Haynes are the ‘Perfect Match’ dance band, playing music characterized by rich vocal harmonies, rollicking piano riffs and lively original tunes.”

Nice Verdes from Pemberton take the stage at 7 p.m. Nice Verdes play original and Indie World music, Cuban Son, Vallenatos, Cumbias, Chachacha and more.

The music of Nice Verdes is uplifting and sunny and has a fresh approach to original world folk music, inspired by the music of the world, especially Cuba and Colombia. They enjoy most of all the parties and the festivals that celebrate the strong sense of community and equality in diversity.

Cody‘s Bannock, Smashin’ Smoothies and Taylor Made Cakes will be on hand with snacks for everyone during the performances.

Kids’ Corner is once again sponsored by the Community Arts Council of Williams Lake and manned by Laura Paterson. The Waterwise Brigade is setting up a table with activities for all.
