The Dusty Hand Reggae Band is about make their Island debut — Vancouver Island, that is.

The reggae band will be performing at the Bowser Legion (7035 Island Hwy. West) this Saturday.

Frontman Andy Maguire used to play in a reggae band in the U.K., and he said there’s a big call for reggae music in the mid-Island region.

The Dusty Hand Reggae Band includes Maguire, Norm Bergvist, Rick Macen, Fred Saliani, Mitch (David) Mitchell and Allison Shaw.

The band’s music spans the collection of classic reggae songs from decades past to modern interpretations of well-known songs.

Maguire said the show will be really good fun and good vibes with a mix of people.

“It’s all about having fun and people having a good time,” Maguire said.

Caribbean-inspired food will be available as well. Maguire said the legion will be getting the proceeds from the food sales.

The June 4 show starts at 8 p.m. and will go until 12 a.m. Tickets are $12 each.
