Tonight (Friday) at Fraser River Heritage Park, the unique and gritty Terrence Jack takes to the stage as the Envision Financial Twilight Concerts continue.
Jack’s music slaps audiences with that down-home blues vibe and gets everyone’s feet stomping. His years as a traveller abroad are reflected in all of his music, and the sounds take the listener to beaches all over the world.
His lyrics speak of living life to its fullest, exploring adventures and living life whole- heartedly. A true west coaster, Jack’s music, described as alt-folk, confirms that B.C. is the best place on earth.
Jack is in the midst of a cross-Canada tour and Twilight organizers are excited he chose Mission as one of his stops.
On Wednesday (July 13, the stage will be full as the Big City Soul Band performs.
This big band features a grooving rhythm section, a dynamic big-city horns section and two fabulous vocalists. The music will have the crowd dancing and swinging on a hot summer night. With their high-energy and fun performance, it will be a house party in the park.
Wednesday marks the return of the Mission Arts Council’s Art in the Park series, featuring a number of local artists and artisans on the gazebo.
It is a chance to get a taste of the creative soul of Mission. It’s a favourite evening for many as they wander through the numerous displays and pick up a fabulous piece of art while listening to the music and meeting friends and neighbours.
Also on Wednesday, it will be a Full Cupboard night. Audience members are asked to bring a non-perishable food item or a cash donation for the St. Joseph’s Food Bank.
