The Envision Twilight Concert Series presents the Neil Young tribute band Live Rust at Fraser River Heritage Park, 7494 Mary St Mission, on Friday, July 15 from 7-8 p.m.
For the past four years, Live Rust has been bringing the music of a Canadian rock and roll icon to fans in Canada and the U.S.
Live Rust has taken great pride in recreating the music and concert experience of Neil Young, performing at B.C. festivals and the 2010 Olympics.
The group consists of leading man Roger Potter, Tim Blanchet on drums, Sam Torrance on guitar and bassist Shane Langridge.
That evening, the Art in the Park program will feature hand crafted rock candles by Anastasia Greenan, water colours by Carol Anne Almquist, Gina Esche’s natural way to body wellness and Betty Sandmark’s beaded jewelry.
On Wednesday, July 20 from 7-8 p.m., The Big Bang Jazz Band will be performing.
Originally The 51st Eight from Chilliwack, the group celebrated its 10th birthday in 2008 and decided to reinvent themselves as The Big Bang Jazz Band.
Part New Orleans, part West Coast, part Canadiana, visitors can expect strong ensemble playing and vocals by the whole front line, a dynamic driving rhythm section and consistently entertaining energy.
The Big Bang Jazz Band is made up of Bria Skonberg on trumpet, Lukas Matheson on trombone, Colin Farquhar on clarinet, bassist Georgia Korba, Jake Holmes on drums, Dominik Heins on piano, and Josh Roberts on banjo and guitar.
The Art in the Park program will feature the unique jewelry of Carobrian, Pam Ellis’s inspirational art, the unconventional art of Luke Gregson and Karl Turner’s specialty teas.
The Log Cabin Café and the Blackberry Kitchen will be open. Admission is free but donations are encouraged.
