Dr Bones Blues Project - Saturday, June 3
'Doctor Bones' is Victoria’s own gospel-inspired blues fusion band. John and Gail Bones formed the band in 2007 and soon found its niche playing encouraging, blues-based music to Victoria’s homeless and marginalized. This initial work (and the band) has evolved and now its jazz, rock and funk-infused blues also encourages and entertains at Vancouver Island and Lower Mainland fairs, festivals, summer markets, fundraisers, prisons, music clubs and bars.

Join us for the annual blues celebration with this fun, high energy band. We're gonna have a blast. Bring your friends. " I promise a good time." Lando Klassen, Owner. 

7pm-  $10.00 at the door.
