Concert in the Park at Rocky Point

Needs a location

The Summer Sunday concert series is back and once again we will be having a Meetup each week.

NOTE For any of the Sundays in the series I am looking for a volunteer or volunteers to spend an hour or two before the show monitoring the parking lot where we put the entertainers. It usually means you will have an excellent parking spot : )

The Summer Sunday concert series is back and once again we will be having a Meetup each week.

There will be almost 40 bands playing at Rocky Point this summer with ten bands in the Summer Sunday series, sixteen bands on the Ribfest weekend and more as part of Golden Spike Days on the July 1st weekend.

Details on the events and bands can be found at summersundays.ca
and at summersundays.ca/ribfest-2022/ and at goldenspike.ca/entertainment

Parking can be limited but transit including Skytrain is nearby.

We often get together afterwards for dinner, drinks or a bbq.

July 24 2:00pm LAURIE MORVAN BAND
Laurie Morvan Band is a 5-piece high energy, rockin’ blues band based in Long Beach, CA that honed its distinctively tight sound through joyful, relentless, and ever-expanding touring throughout the USA, Canada, Mexico and Europe, amassing over 80 festival performances along the way. Picture this. A tall, blue-eyed blonde steps up to the microphone, a guitar in her hands and confidence in her soul. She launches into a set of hot, modern blues, spiced with burning guitar solos, soulful harmonies and compelling songwriting. Her in-between song banter is affable and relatable. She sees you, she gets you, and she wants to bring a healing joy to your heart through her music.

With deep roots in the blues and soul combined with a rock driven edge, these well tested road warriors continue to pump out the tunes since debuting over 16 years ago at the 2006 Vancouver Jazz Festival.

Kalimba – The Spirit of Earth Wind and Fire transports audiences back to the excitement of the first time they heard these unforgettable songs. This 10-piece band includes a full horn and rhythm section to accurately reproduce the infectious grooves. Kalimba faithfully honours EWF founder Maurice White’s work by featuring lush treatments of the soaring vocal harmonies and signature high notes of White’s sidekick, Philip Bailey.

September 4 2:00pm THE LEGENDARY R&B ALLSTARS
It’s a big finish to our 2022 season with none other than The Rhythm & Blues Allstars, a Summer Sundays favourite. Now in their 5th decade on the Vancouver music scene, this 10 piece powerhouse is as tight and funky as ever!
