But, we can provide some great concerts! On Tuesday, July 6, we'll present that great summer surf band, Tropical Mayhem. They'll play from 7:00 PM until 9:00 PM at Waterwheel Park in Chemainus for a great evening's music. Then, on Saturday, July 10, we'll present none other than Hank Angel and his Island Devils for some fantastic old-time Rock! He'll play a one-hour set at 2:00 PM and a second set at 3:30 PM. But that's not all! On Saturday, August 21, we'll present that foot-stomping, country rock 'n roll explosion - Black Moon Valley, with two sets for you!
