Winter Nights concert Dec. 19

The Winter Nights Christmas Concert will be held Saturday, Dec. 19

The music presented by the 4 Lake Cowichan Tenors is so upbeat that members of the audience get up to dance during a recent coffeehouse.

The Winter Nights season of coffeehouses at the 50 Plus Activity Centre in Lake Cowichan kicked off Saturday, Nov. 21 with a lively evening of music, dancing and socializing with friends.

The house band, the five-piece Good Time Boys, got everyone in the mood with selections varying from Edelweiss to O Lord, It’s Hard to Be Humble When You’re Perfect in Every Way but they also included some very danceable tunes which soon saw the dance floor filled.

At 7 p.m., the spotlight moved onto a newly formed group, the 4 Cowichan Lake Tenors and they harmonized their way through a set of Beach Boys songs like I Get Around, Help Me Rhonda and In My Room before moving on to such favourites as It Takes a Worried Man to Sing a Worried Song and They Call the Wind Maria.

If this sort of evening sounds like just the ticket for you, there’s another one of them coming up.

The Winter Nights Christmas Concert will be held Saturday, Dec. 19 featuring not only the 4 Cowichan Lake Tenors and the Good Time Boys but also the Rivernotes Choir in an event that will also collect items for the local foodbank.

Doors open at the centre at 5:30 p.m. and the show runs from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Admission is $5 at the door or appropriate non-perishable food items. Why not bring both? It’s great entertainment value. And as usual, beverages and snacks are available for sale from the kitchen.
