Farm-to-Table Gourmet Dinner & Dance
Fri, 15 April 2016, 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM PDT
Tickets also available from Lyle's Place, 770 Yates St.
Enjoy a fabulous, locally-sourced gourmet four-course meal, amazing art, silent auction and two bands, including The Merry McKentys, one of the biggest family’s bands in the west.
With occasional back-up vocals from friends, this 10-piece group from Cortes Island will perform cheerful, good-hearted tunes and provide a fun evening filled with the opportunity to try and enjoy contra dancing. Often likened to square dancing without the squares, there is no fancy footwork required, and a complete newcomer can be dancing along in a matter of minutes with the help of the dance caller, who gives instructions as the dance goes along.

“The music is played with enough skill to keep skill level out of the foreground, enough humility to let the music come through the musicians, and enough spirit to get your toes moving and your face smiling.”
