The County Line is in the spotlight Saturday, Nov. 17 at 9 p.m. Cover charge is $10.

The County Line is a modern country duo comprised of singer/songwriters Megan Johns and Hayden Cyr. Cyr’s grit, edge and energy complements Johns’ sweet but strong personality. The polarity between the two creates the chemistry their fans adore.

There’s no cover for the Friday, Nov. 23 appearance of Jack & Jay at 8 p.m. Jack Gunderson and Jason Dunajski from Eagle Eyes rock the night away with a variety of classic rock songs.

It’s blues night Saturday, Nov. 24 with the Mark Crissinger Band at 8 p.m. Cover is $10.

Crissinger leads a contemporary blues band featuring an all-star cast of musicians from the Nanaimo area. They’ve gained legions of fans around the Island from their multiple performances at blues festivals in the region.

The Dylan Stone Duo rounds out the month at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30.

Stone writes, plays and sings from the heart. He’s constantly pursuing new sounds and collaborations.

Raised by an old record collection and his guitar that’s put food on the table for his entire adult life, Stone’s storied career has led him to share the stage with one of his musical icons Alejandro Escovedo, open for Keith Urban at B.C.’s largest country music festival, play onstage with Robert Randolf & The Family Band and perform his songs for Lou Reed in Nashville, Tennessee.
