Editor, The times:
The North Thompson Music Guild will be hosting several events for the town of Clearwater this year.
Last year we hosted nine events on Thursday evenings in July and August, as well as Natalie McMaster and Donnell Leahy in November at Dutch Lake Community Center.
This year it is our hope to host one or two large events, along with Thursday evenings in July and August.
The first of our large events this year will be ABRA Cadabra, an ABBA tribute band from Vancouver. This event will be held at Dutch Lake Community Center on April 28, 7-9 p.m. Doors will open at 6 p.m.
The event will open with the Junior James Gang, our local high school band.
ABRA Cadabra has been touring the world for over 15 years, helping audiences of all ages and cultures re-live and celebrate the timeless and uplifting music of ABBA.
The group has performed for the PNE and the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, Kelowna Community Center, Sagebrush Theatre, Kamloops, Canada Cup of Curling, Centennial Theatre, North Vancouver, the prime minister and the royal family in Malaysia, Jimmy Choo, Universal Studios Orlando, Florida, Monterrey and Woodstock Plaza, Mexico, and countless Rotary events, charity galas, corporate events and many others.
Proceeds from this event will go towards promoting music in Clearwater.
