What do you get when you cross a beautiful lakeside setting with some fabulous country music talent?

You get the 2nd Annual Harrison Hot Springs Bands on the Beach, that’s what!

This event was created to showcase local, upcoming, talented country music artists and give music lovers a gorgeous place to go to enjoy it.

While Labour Day weekend can be a busy one in Harrison Hot Springs, this event will ensure that visitors will leave with great memories and finish off the summer with a flourish.

As this is a two day event, it allows for visitors to enjoy just one day or to overnight at any of the local campsites, motels, B&Bs or hotels and enjoy the whole weekend.

Harrison Hot Springs is renowned for the Festival of the Arts and that means many people already know what a great spot this is for entertainment and a toe tapping good time.

There are plenty of places to enjoy a delicious meal or a lighter snack, along with plenty of shopping venues. All you need to bring after that is a blanket or chair (or not, it’s not like you’ll be sitting down!)

Bands on the Beach is the brainchild of local country music star, Todd Richard and local businesswoman and Village of Harrison Hot Springs Councillor, Sonja Reyerse.

They saw a niche for an event and knew they could tap into a lot of talent and wouldn’t have to look far to find it.

They’ve had incredible support from the local business community, despite times being a bit tight, as local businesses understand it takes spending money to make money and by helping bring about an event such as this, they will see more visitors to the community.

This year’s event is at the bandstand right on the beach, a stunning vista at this time of year, on Saturday, Sept. 1 and Sunday, Sept. 2. Performances begin at 2 p.m. and end at 8 p.m. both days. Headliners this year are none other than country recording artist Kenny Hess and Todd Richard and the TR Band.

Other bands performing are the Brent Lee Band, Ailsa Rose and the Band, Ken McCoy and the Snakeoil Band and Trevor Murray to name a few.

The BC Country Music Association (BCCMA) will be represented and will have cds as well as other merchandise of the bands’ for sale.

 

Other representatives you can expect to see are Curtis Pope from Country 107 radio, Star Fm radio and the Agassiz Harrison Hope Observer newspaper.
