Chilliwack will perform at Harrison Memorial Hall on May 5.

Chilliwack tickets almost ‘gone gone gone’

Bill Henderson's Chilliwack to bring the hits to Memorial Hall

Tickets are almost sold out for what will surely be a concert to remember. The legendary rock band Chilliwack will be on stage at Harrison Memorial Hall on Saturday, May 5, as part of a much-needed fundraising effort for the Harrison Festival Society.

This is a rare opportunity to see Chilliwack in a smaller, more intimate venue.

Chilliwack and Bill Henderson are synonymous with the early days of West Coast rock and roll.  Rising out of the ashes of psychedelia in 1969, Canada’s legendary Chilliwack released 12 albums over a 15-year period producing numerous Canadian and international hits including Lonesome Mary in 1970, Fly At Night, Arms Of Mary, and California Girl in the mid ’70s. Other hits include Communication Breakdown (1979), and My Girl (Gone Gone Gone), I Believe, Whatcha Gonna Do and Don’t Stop between ‘81 and ’84.

Now in their 40th year, and with their live CD There and Back still winning over young classic rockers and delighting long time fans, Bill Henderson and the band are rocking like never before. Hearing the revitalized Chilliwack of 2012 is hearing those songs for the first time — all over again.

Tickets are $75 plus HST.  A $30 tax receipt will be issued with each ticket.

In addition to the performance by Chilliwack, the evening will include a silent auction, raffle and door prizes. Appetizers and refreshments will be served.

The evening starts at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are available by calling 604 796-3664 or visit them online.
