Johnny Inappropriate to play NYE fundraiser

The parents of the Oceanside Bantam Generals have organized a New Year’s Eve Dance at the Parksville Community & Conference Centre.

Nanaimo-based cover band Johnny Inappropriate is playing at a New Year’s Eve dance at the Parksville Community & Conference Centre. The dance is a fundraising event for the Oceanside Bantam Generals.

The parents of the Oceanside Bantam Generals have organized a New Year’s Eve Dance at the Parksville Community & Conference Centre and they have got Nanaimo-band Johnny Inappropriate to play the gig.

“We were able to snatch them up,” said one of the organizers, Elaine Shworan. “They’re a popular band.”

According to Johnny Inappropriate’s bass player / manager Aaron Curry, the band played at Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort & Conference Centre last New Year’s Eve. They also regularly play at corporate special events and weddings.

“We’re a high-energy five-piece cover band,” said he said. “We play anything that’ll get you out of your seat dancing.”

Shworan said this year’s dance at the PCCC is a fundraiser for the Oceanside Bantam Generals, who are going to play a tournament in Portland, Oregon, Jan. 16-19.

“They’re really looking forward to it,” she said. “It’s a pretty big deal.”

Aside from music, the night will include a raffle. Shworan said prizes include Canucks tickets, a snowboard with bindings, a stand-up paddle board donated by family and friends of the team members.

To mark midnight, party favours, hats and noisemakers will be given out before the 10 second countdown. Champagne will also be available for sale.

There will also be a cash bar at the event, and two food trucks will be parked outside.

Shworan said that organizers are working on a couple of leads for a safe-ride program for the event, but as of right now party-goers will have to plan ahead or take taxis.

Doors at 8:30 p.m., music starts at 9 p.m. until 1 a.m. Tickets are $30 and are available at Wilde & Sparrow, Shades of Green, the PCCC or vanisleevents.ca
