Summer 2017 Events
Summer Sessions at the Shipyards
The Synthetics are a relatively new band on the scene .. they are a very high energy band who are the only band in Vancouver that do 80’s covers , anything from Duran Duran to David Bowie.. Expect a good rocken time!! This band is fun and will make a great start to the summer “Dance Party” sessions this year.
Brickhouse is one of the most uniquely “Vancouver” music experiences… they blend classic and modern for a blues funk sound. They are great musicians that do cleverly covered class R & B tunes with ease. The band has been together for a long time and has a catalog of really great music .. we don’t think you will be able to sit to this one.
Blues/Rock and Soul This is a multi-talented group with a rock driven edge. The group has early roots, took a 3 year hiatus and now they’re back bigger and better and ready to rock. From having closed out the Vancouver International Jazz festival, to a tour in 2016, and releasing a new CD this year, we think you’re in for a real treat.
This band is in HIGH demand ..the name speaks for itself. This is a great band that starts with the Ed Sullivan look and this year will be giving a whole set devoted to “Sargent Peppers” (the LP launched 50 years ago.) You have to catch these guys ..the costumes and the sound ..you’d swear they were the real thing. Come down and dance the night away!!!
Get ready to be surprised! When Mike Henry comes out on stage you will think he is Ray Charles. This is really a great show that you can get up and dance to or just sit back and enjoy the old hits like “Hit the Road Jack’ and THEN he will transform himself to give you a little James Brown. You won’t want to miss this one.
Dan is back with a brand new singer to get you going , this time he makes a great segue for the City’s big “FUN CITY FESTIVAL” featuring the “Slide the City adventure”. So slid down Lonsdale and come in and check out the music. You can chillax or get up and dance with the band. They are always a crowd pleaser and like to get you involved.
This is a BIG band !! We are super excited to have these guys, they will knock your socks off and we mean literally! This band has not one, but two, female singers and a huge presence. We think they are the BEST cover band around. You will not be able to just sit this one out and you really don’t want to miss them. Bring everyone you know for a really entertaining night!
Well …we brought them back again.. Every year we get requests to make sure this band is in our line-up ..So what can we say “the people have spoken” , so we decided to make them our closer for the summer season. They need no introduction the name says it all. Come down and enjoy the Reggae it’s a great way to enjoy the last Saturday of the summer.
