Final show of the season at Errington Hall

Gary Comeau & the Voodoo Allstars will be performing at the hall, which is just outside of Parksville

This year’s performance season at the Errington Hall comes to an end on May 27 with an all-ages New Orleans-style dance party featuring Gary Comeau & the Voodoo Allstars.

Comeau is a singer-songwriter and musician. Playing a range of instruments including guitar, mandolin, fiddle and piano, he delivers originally crafted, high energy, New Orleans-style rockin’ roots and blues.

Although Comeau’s own roots are French-Acadian, he was born and raised in Nova Scotia.

Gary Comeau & the Voodoo Allstars have released four CDs. The band was featured on Holger Peterson’s Saturday Night Blues, a CBC nation-wide blues show out of Edmonto, and are regulars on the West Coast festival circuit.

Gary Comeau & the Voodoo Allstars include Comeau (vocals, fiddle, mandolin, piano, accordion and guitar), Tim Hearsey (vocals, guitar), Rob Becker (vocals, bass). Chris Nordquist (vocals, drums, percussion) and Jerry Cook (sax).

The show is Friday, May 27 at Errington Hall. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m.

Tickets $20 at Cranky Dog Music, Heaven on Earth and Errington Store. Kids ages 6-12 are $5 at the door; ages 5 and under are free. Creekmore’s coffee and refreshments available.
