If you’re looking for something to do on Boxing Day, the Enablers will be playing a gig at the French Creek pub that evening.
“It’s a weird day, but you never know,” said the band’s guitar player and vocalist Wes Weldon. “People might want to come out.”
The gig will also give audiences an opportunity to meet the band’s new drummer, Nanaimo-based musician Bob Moffat.
“He’s been playing for about a million years,” joked Weldon, who had seen the multi-instrumentalist play on-stage several years before. “We’re pretty confident that he knows what he’s doing.”
Moffat has replaced percussionist Greg Harford, who Weldon said is now playing gigs on cruise ships.
Rounding out the band are Colin Perry on sax, flute, keyboard and vocals, and Stuart Parenteau on bass and vocals.
Together the four-man group will play their usual set of rock, blues, reggae, country, southern rock, blues rock, disco and more.
“There will be a bunch of dancing going on,” said Weldon. We can’t wait.”
Friday’s show starts at 7 p.m. and goes until 10 p.m. There is no cover charge.
The band will also play a second gig on Saturday, Dec. 27 at the same venue from 8:30 p.m.–12:30 a.m.
