ANNUAL BAND DAY COMING TO THE BAND STAND

With 'weather' threatening for Sunday, Band Day will move to The Hall for the day.   Same great entertainment, same BBQ by our brave if damp volunteers, but indoors.


This is the weekend, Sunday is the day.  Dust off your lawn chair and get ready for our annual Band Day at the band stand on July 22nd.  A great lineup of music, BBQ and of course our famous strawberry shortcake to keep the munchies at bay.   And get your tickets on the lobster draw as tomorrow will see someone win 25 lbs of Fundy Bay lobster!

BANDSTAND FLOODED WITH SOUND BY 'HIGH TIDE'


Once again Sunday evening saw the band stand filled with great sound, laughter and applause as "High Tide" took the stage to provide a wonderful evening concert of familiar music to an appreciative audience.


Marg and Andrew Lloyd and Patrick Hanlon have become a popular trio in Cumberland County, performing at numerous locations to the delight of audiences everywhere.

There will be no Sunday evening concert next week as the Association celebrates its 46th annual BAND DAY, starting at noon.

CITIZENS' CHOIR ENJOYS OLD FASHIONED SATURDAY NIGHT


Saturday night saw the Parrsboro Citizens' Choir out to take part in the festivities of OFSN.   Starting at the bandstand to see the unveiling of the fabulous new sculpture which will grace the corner of the park, they had to skip the cake and treats to move down to the bank parking lot to spend the next 45 minutes providing participants with a variety of old rock'n roll songs.

It was great fun to once again participate in this event which saw perfect, if breezy weather fill Main Street with a great crowd.

One more summer event awaits the choir's participation:   Band Day at the bandstand on July 22nd.

CITZENS' CHOIR PERFORMS AT THE OTTAWA HOUSE


Canada Day celebrations were held once again this year at Ottawa House, and once again the Parrsboro Citizens' Choir was in attendance to provide some musical entertainment and lead the attendees in the singing of the national anthem while the flag was being hoisted.


Musical selections were made which would encourage audience participation in the singing, and one medley of tunes remembered the 100th year since the ending of WW I. 

The choir is pleased and honoured to be included in this celebration every year, looking forward to being able help celebrate Canada's birth date.

CARL CAMERON AT THE BANDSTAND



A perfect ending to a terrific Canada Day in Parrsboro was provided by Carl, accompanied by Rob Bentley, with his terrific performance on the band stand to a great, appreciative crowd.


The weather cooperated with brilliant sun, warm temperatures, and a mild breeze to keep the bugs away as Carl performed a wide range of musical selections, all of which pleased the audience.


What better way to spend the time before the fireworks?     Once again all donations received this evening will go to a charity of Carl's choice.

ANOTHER GREAT CONCERT AT THE PARK


The weather might have been cool, damp and overcast grey but that didn't deter the group from sharing their musical warmth. Up Shore, Down Shore, Knot Sure graced the Parrsboro Bandstand on Sunday evening June 24. Fine performance by Gregg Moore, Sandra and Garnet Hendren. Look for them in and around Parrsboro this summer. I am told they have several public engagements coming up soon for you to catch them.

(Some people were obviously having far too much fun)
Wonderful Job at the Bandstand Sunday evening Sandra (not exactly sure which Shore.. or Sure you are). Too bad the weather didn't want to co-operate but the music sure did not suffer!

CONCERTS AT THE PARK FEATURES JC AND THE SENIORS


Entirely too much fun was had this evening at the band stand as JC and The Seniors rocked the evening for over an hour with vintage rock'n roll.   Led by a greased back, shade wearing Rob 'Bad Boy' Bentley (who showed an entirely new face to the crowd from behind a vintage microphone), the band played a preview of what is in store for patrons who come out Wednesday evening for a special 40th Anniversary screening of 'GREASE'.


The great sounds and enthusiastic performances had them dancing on the grass.   Who knew Kerwin had such great moves?

("What is he up to now?"  Jill and Patrick seem amazed at Rob's moves)

Next up at the band stand:   UpShore, DownShore and Not Sure.    Another great evening of music coming up next week.
