Batten down the hatches, the Chris Buck Band is coming to Cowichan Bay Friday, Feb. 19 for a big night at the Oceanfront Suites’ Show Lounge.
The group, which includes the Cowichan Valley’s Taylor Allum, has been garnering raves everywhere as its popularity grows.
They’ve won Country Club Act of the Year in 2014 and 2015 as well as Group/Duo of the Year in 2015 at the BC Country Music Association Awards.
They’ll be bringing their newest tunes including Giddy Up and Leave Your Light On to the lounge.
Allum is still a young guy but he is one of Vancouver Island’s most in-demand drummers. He can play in any genre, as shown by the folks he’s worked with, including Chilliwack, The Odds, blues great Tim Williams, Vancouver Island Music awards female vocalist of the year Andrea Smith plus Wyckham Porteous and the great Charlie Daniels to name but a few.
He’s seen some big stages, too, like Sunfest, the Cowichan Theatre, the Greater Victoria Art Gallery, the Duncan Garage Showroom and even the B.C. Legislature.
Doors open at the Oceanfront Suites at 7 p.m. with the show starting at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $25 each. Get them from the sponsors: Top Shelf Feeds and Island Tractor or from the Oceanfront Suites hotel.
