Medici’s is both proud and honoured to promote and recommend you get yourself to The Venables for a rare treat. Friday October 7th, the Frank Venables Auditorium will host Thrill on Blueberry Hill, a Fats Domino Tribute, A magical night when true legends of music will take our wonderful theatre into a stratosphere of entertainment like none other.
Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne and his band take us back to a time when piano players like Fats Domino worked the “strolls” in dozens of American Cities. This talented, internationally recognized Juno-award-winning “Boogie-woogie Piano Man” has a flamboyant stage presence, and his noteworthy 7 piece band – including Russell Jackson, who played 6 years with the legendary BB King, and saxophone player Craig Thomson, 2013 Okanagan Musician of the Year – are sure to wow with this incredible Fats Domino Tribute.
Local duo, Mountainview Drive, will open the night performing classic harmonies from the 1940s to the 1960’s. They’ll take you back to the good old days when lyrics told stories, and harmony soothed souls.
Concert is Friday Oct 7th, 2016 at 7:30 pm at Frank Venables Theatre. This is during Wine Festival, so get your tickets early.
Proceeds of the concert will benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Society, to help fund MS research and services to help people living with MS.
