A kind of country to make you dance

Live music slated for the Parksville Legion coming up

A classic country band with modern country influences and a little bit if a “rocky edge” is playing a Halloween Dance at The Parksville Legion this Saturday, Oct. 27. It’s Norm Surrette’s Boney Finger Band, a group filled with veteran musicians like lead singer Surrette, who has played in the area for about 40 years.

“It’s not the regular cry in my beer, my dog has three legs, my wife just ran away kind of country,” said Ron Stewart, lead guitar player in the band. “It’s more the kind of country that tends to make people smile a lot with us and dance.”

The band is also comprised of Sherry-Lynn Blanshard on bass guitar and Brad Kent on drums.


The legion  is at 146 Hirst Ave. in Parksville. Tickets are $10 and doors open at 8:30 p.m. Get tickets in advance from the Parksville Legion or Cranky Dog Music. There will be prizes for best costumes. Call 250-248-6842 or 250-951-1923 for more info.
