It was a Friday night, the theme- Prohibition night- mobsters, flappers, gambling and a whole lot of gin flowing. If you like western swing, rockabilly music, delta style blues then these two great Canadian acts should not be missed.
David “Boxcar” Gates set the mood with his amazing Delta blues style finger picking and slide guitar and blues harp:
A break with more blackjack and roulette
and then the main act : Petunia & the Vipers
Petunia’s smooth unique voice is complemented by the Vipers tight arrangements and excellent musicianship. Yes, Petunia can yodel as well!
The dance floor was full and thanks to Hillcrest Bakery
providing snacks, home made sausage rolls and pretzels -no one went hungry.
At the end of the night, those who donated money in order to play blackjack or roulette were entered into a draw to win a guitar! And the lucky winner!
