The Blues Underground, 10 Lois Lane under the China Steps, Nanaimo, is having it’s first Adult Rock and Blues Showcase at 7 pm on Saturday, July 18, 2009. Over the last two months, fifteen individuals with varied backgrounds, skill levels, and dreams came together for the Blues Undergrounds inaugural Adult Rock and Blues School. Through this program three bands were produced and developed under the leadership of Tom Dodge and a series of talented instructors and volunteers. They worked through a series of rehearsals, workshops, and classes in order to prepare for this finale showcase.
Now the school invites you to come out and experience the outcome. You’ll see Plan Blue, Tequila Mockingbird, and Forever Young live at the Blues Underground. Support all their hard work and encourage the local live music scene in Nanaimo by being a part of the audience. You’ll see and hear what a little courage and a dusty ol’ guitar can do. The Blues Underground staff are very pleased with the outcome of the first program and they look forward to be offering it again in the near future. Entrance to this exciting evening of entertainment is by donation. For more information, call 250-740- 2583 or 250-616-6242.
