BAND DAY 2020 CANCELLED

It is with great regret that the Board of the Parrsboro Band Association has come to the decision to cancel Band Day for 2020 due to health and safety issues surrounding the Covid-19 outbreak.   Choirs and band are unable to rehearse in close confines, volunteers cannot meet to hold planning and organizational meetings and group gatherings may well still not be advisable.    Therefore we will see you all on the final Sunday of 2021 at the band stand for Band Day ’21.

A BRILLIANT VIRTUAL OPEN MIC AT THE HALL

Well it was a different 'look' but the virtual open mic was a huge success.   It took a LOT of work by Rob Bentley and so it will be a little while before another one rolls around but it was definitely worth the effort. 

Thank you to all the performers who participated and made the evening such a huge success.

HIGH TIDE DOES A TERRIFIC SOCIAL DISTANCE CONCERT AT THE HALL

This evening our remote audience was treated to a terrific song selection and great entertainment by High Tide  (Marg Fisher, Andrew Lloyd, and Patrick Hanlon).   It was a fabulous hour of music interspersed with a great deal of humour, which is so desperately needed at this time.   Well done and thank you for contributing the SD Concert series from The Hall.


Next week will be our first attempt at a 'virtual open mic' featuring performers from all over the area and presented to you by the electronic wizardry of Rob Bentley who is the innovative thinker and driving force behind all this.

So be sure to tune in next Sunday at 7:00 pm here, www.parrsborolionsbingo.ca, on Eastlink Cable 5 or on Parrsboro Radio.
