Rock out at the Pioneer Park Twilight Concert Series this Wednesday, Aug. 8, from 6:30-8 p.m. with Dean Jecks.

The Vancouver-based musician has been playing for over 25 years, or at least as far back as he can remember.

Jecks covers numerous bands and popular songs spanning a wide range of genres, from country music to classic rock, and even blues.

His favourite songs to sing are the classics from the Beatles, but he’ll play songs from every era, from Tom Petty and John Mellencamp to Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughn.

Jecks said he was privileged enough to see Vaughn play in Victoria a few years ago and later connected with him for a jam session.

He also counts Chuck Berry as an inpiration.

A frequent traveller all over Western Canada and the United States, Jecks has featured as entertainment on cruise ships.

Although he’s mainly an electric guitar player, he can unplug and take it mellow, or switch to a banjo or a bass when the mood strikes.

You can watch videos about Dean Jecks at his website, www.deanjecks.8k.com, or on YouTube. His site also features a list of popular rock and country songs he performs.

The Pioneer Park Twilight Concert Series is presented by the District of Kent Community Services Department, and sponsored by the Agassiz Harrison Lions Club, Prospera Credit Union and Agassiz Harrison Hope Observer.
