Lazy Mike ready to rock the Shady

Organizers expecting a full house

Lazy Mike and the Rockin’ Recliners will be back at the Shady Rest Pub in Qualicum Beach this weekend, set to rock the crowd with their high energy blues music.

“The last time we played at the Shady it was a very enthusiastic full house and people were literally dancing in the isles or wherever they could find a spot, it was great,” said Mike Mallon, harmonica player and lead vocalist with the group. 

Mallon said the group’s music is based on the blues but has influences of rock and even a bit of jazz. The Port Alberni group have been together for about two years and members have played in and around the area for years with different groups. Mallon is also a member of the well known Malloomba Boogie Band. Other band members include Bob “Blue” Berry on vocals and bass, Ryan “Evan Jazz Hands” Connell on drums and Kyle “The K-Man” Guineau on guitar. The group plays at 7 p.m. at the Shady Rest this Saturday and there is no cover charge.
