On Aug. 13 at 6:30 Concert on the Screen will be broadcast live via the online video conferencing platform Zoom.
The show will feature music by Gabriola band Tomorrow Never Knows: A Beatles Homage. A collection of eight local musicians who have come together to the raise funds for the Gabriola Lions Club. Many will also remember MC – Honey LaRue from Gabriola Songs. She is honoured to bring her southern charm, wit and big hair to this special event. Honey looks forward to seeing all y’all out there in Zoomland!
Concert On The Screen is a must see and hear way for to celebrate our wonderful Island. Kelly Field is the bass playing foundation of many, perhaps most Gabriola bands and the inspiration for the show. Before the pandemic Kelly had planned a fundraiser where he would learn to play the music of his least favourite band, the Beatles. Kinda like Fabio getting his head shaved for charity. That got cancelled until one day, Dave Teichroeb, who also plays in a band with Kelly, uttered the words Concert On The Screen. A replacement fundraiser for the long running Concert On The Green was Born.
Who are these talented local musicians? The steller band of our Gabriola musical kin have been working hard tduring the pandemic to create a must see musical experience. Eight musicians. Four singing the leads and four playing the tunes.
