Thursday night at Sunfest in Cowichan

On Thursday, July 31, the fun at Sunfest kicks off at 5 p.m. with successive shows by bands from the Cowichan Valley.

Band of Rascals starts things off then, "Lonesome Don Wilkie and His West Coast Wranglers will have the crowd singing along with all their favourites," says event publicist Charlotte Fisher.

Next up, bringing the spirit of the Man in Black to the Sunfest stage is the Nanaimo-based Johnny Cash tribute band David James and Big River, always a fave with fans up and down Vancouver Island.

"Victoria’s The Roper Show brings their mix of blues rooted, soul rockin’ country funk to the event. Husband and wife country duo Bucko & Toad return from the capital city to close out the evening’s entertainment with their mix of upbeat, foot stomping tracks and heartfelt sweet songs," according to Fisher.
