Curds&Whey playing Parksville

A look at the beach festival concert finale

The final night of the Beach Festival’s Summer Concert Series is on Saturday, Aug. 19 and it’s got a lot to offer the music lover, says entertainment director Lloyd Derry.

Music kicks off on the kite field at Parksville Community Park at 6 p.m. with Younger Than Yesterday from Victoria bringing the rock music of the 60s. They have played more than 400 hundred shows on the Island in the past eight years, from bars to outdoor festivals. They’ll be armed with their outfits and wigs.

Next up will be Vancouver’s Curds&Whey. Electrifying original numbers and an intense love of performing cover songs are the driving forces powering the band.

Front man Scott Rocker Holman said, “We understand it’s a family event so we’ve traded some of our overly aggressive songs in for some awesome covers all done with the signature Curds&Whey flair.

“We’ll also be playing our country stuff, a few raps and the rock covers we play will get the young at heart up and dancing. We’ve never been to Parksville and are looking forward to Beach Fest and rocking hard on the 19th”.

Rounding out the evening will be the lighting of the sculptures, with gates open until 11 p.m. so people can enjoy them during the Quality Foods Festival of Lights fireworks show.
