The Fishline: October, 2013
Hello fans of the Fish,
We're looking forward to joining the Shuffle Demons at Gleneden Hall on Friday, November 15th for an evening of Cluster Fun! This should be a good time in the old hall as we re-create the early days of the bouncing dance floor and enthusiastic dancers at the hall that started it all! It was Gleneden Hall where the Roots and Blues festival got started 21 years ago and the featured act was the Shuffle Demons so it's only fitting that they return there for a fund-raiser for the Shuswap Environmental Action Society, a good cause and a good time, all in one place. we'll see if we can also re-create the Shuffle Armedemons at the end of the night with the legendary six-piece horn section! We all had a lot of fun doing this at Anstey Arm for last year's Routes and Blues, nothing like a stage full of brass plumbing to end off the evening with a bang! Tickets are on sale now at Acorn Music, $20/person, there are a limited number because we don't want to bounce the walls down, just the dance floor, get yours soon.
On Friday, November 22nd we're doing a fundraiser at Shuswap Lake Estates for the Sorrento Health Unit, at 8:00 pm. We'll be accompanied by an improv troupe so that should be fun with some live theatre and some live music complimenting each other and a good cause to support to boot as we attempt to raise some money for an area that has a population of nearly 8,000 people and no health services to speak off. Come on out and support a good cause and enjoy an entertaining evening of theatre and dancing to some good rhythm and blues at the same time. It's a win-win for everybody!
On Friday, the 29th we will be back at our usual haunt, the Hideaway Pub and Bistro for our monthly evening of booze, blues and barbecue. Join us at 8:00 that evening for an evening of rhythm and blues, no cover charge, so what are you waiting for, put on your dancing shoes, slippers or clogs and head on down to the Hideaway.
Looking ahead to the year end the Salmon Armenians will be bringing in 2014 at the Vernon Jazz Club, this should be a great night as we've had a blast there the last ten years so New Year's Eve should be a party. For more information check out the Vernon Jazz Club website.
Remember gang, keep on swimming upstream!
