The Fanny Bay Community Association is thrilled to present a special, four-performance fall live music series “Live at Fanny Bay Hall,” featuring some of the area’s finest musicians and bands.

All performances begin at 7 p.m. and provide an intimate and entertaining way to spend a Saturday evening at the newly renovated Fanny Bay Hall.

Enjoy stellar and authentic renditions of one of the most successful bands of the 20th century, which sold more than 72 million albums worldwide. Fifty years later, the Tijuana Brass sound remains fresh with tunes like The Lonely Bull and A Taste of Honey.

This band features some fine musicians with Rick Husband (guitar), Michael Eddy (keyboard), Neil Clark (drums), Grahame Edwards (bass), Michael Johnson (trombone and trumpet) and Jake Masri (trumpet).
