Martin Comtois did what he does best on Saturday, Sept. 10.
He hosted three musical acts and put on a magnificent spread of vegetarian food in his backyard, across the alley from Flavours Ice Cream shop in Williams Lake.
Comtois billed the event as a Triple CD Release Party.
Leading off the entertainment was 16-year-old Sam Tudor, playing songs off his new album Snail Mail.
This singer-song writer from Gavin Lake and Big Lake sang all original material he composed himself.
He confessed he likes writing songs maybe even more than performing them.
The Grade 12 Williams Lake secondary student thanked “Mr. Morton” for inspiring him and encouraging him to produce his album at school last year.
Mr. Morton is none other than Brent Morton of Drum & Bell Tower fame.
Morton taught Sam English last year and was the third billing on Triple CD Celebration.
Morton encouraged folks to get up and dance.
He closed down the very successful evening of music and food with his contagious one-man computer-based, live-drum pounding, knob-tweaking, psychedelic-guitar-soaked experiment with rhythm and harmony.
His new CD is called Burn Beneath the Water.
Sandwiched in between were Jason and Pharis Romero, and they didn’t disappoint.
Hearing them perform the tunes etched on their new CD, A Passing Glimpse, never seems to get old.
That despite the fact that many of their numbers are old time country.
Martin Comtois has another outdoor musical act and dinner spread planned for Sept. 29.
Same time, same place.
Track him down on Facebook if you want to make a reservation.
