Summer Sounds back at Rotary July 24

Summer Sounds at Cranbrook’s Rotary Park on July 24 begins at 6 p.m. with The Tick Magnets (pictured above), a local bunch of enthusiastic entertainers who perform popular covers of folky country-ish, old-timey sort of tunes with an emphasis on vocal harmony, for audiences young, old, dead or alive!

And you can even dance to it!

Group members are: Rollie Cummins on guitar, Steve Knowles on guitar and banjo, and Gord Jolie on standup bass. Special guest star, whenever he is available is Scamp Jolie on electric guitar. In the face of the trials and tribulations that come with the pursuit of the perfect chord, the group takes heart from its motto: “Ticks Dig Us.”

At 7:30 p.m. Take Four will present on Rotary stage.

This professional group of four musicians perform a variety of styles of music focusing on traditional jazz favourites. Each individual member brings many years of experience, entertaining audiences throughout Canada, the U.S. and South Asia. The band consists of drums, piano, bass and trumpet but all members play a variety of instruments so you will hear guitar, trombone, flugelhorn and saxophone as well.

The Fisher Peak Brewing Company will serve its delicious craft beer products and Flippin Crepes, Mama’s Dumplings, Over the Top Canteen, and Auntie Barb’s Bakery will provide an excellent choice of food to satiate your cravings. This will be a Kootenay-style evening out for the whole family!

The volunteers of Fisher Peak Performing Artists Society encourage everyone to bring their own chair and water bottle, and to join them in practicing the community care plan:

  • Allow space between your spot and others;
  • Be respectful of others’ comfort level;
  • Masking is encouraged – not mandatory;
  • Consider leaving pets at home;
  • Stay home if you’re not feeling well or have been recently around someone who has tested positive for a communicable disease

  • Be kind to our wonderful volunteers;
  • Dance in your own space;
