Although we are still in the middle of this worldwide pandemic, our band is trying to get back to normal, although I think we will be re-defining “normal” now.
We are practicing at Knox Presbyterian Church, 3701 32 Ave, Vernon BC at 6:00pm every Wednesday. Strict Covid protocol is being practiced. You must show your QR code for being doubly vaccinated, wear a mask unless you are blowing your pipes or eating/ drinking at a table. Everyone should maintain social distancing to ensure each other’s safety.
Although many of our events have been cancelled over the past 2 years, we have still managed to perform a fair amount. We have entertained at several Seniors facilities, playing in their courtyards or parking lots so that we can provide safe entertainment for the residents. We performed for a “virtual” closing ceremonies for the upcoming BC Winter Games. Remembrance Day was once again on our calendar this year and hopefully this coming Spring we can get back into many more of our regular performances, otherwise we will just go out into some of the local parks for some impromptu performances.
As always, anyone who would like to have us perform for a special event or learn one of these wonderful instruments we play, can contact me at 250-260-1001 and we can discuss whatever you wish.
