The Envision Twilight Concert Series continues on Friday, Aug. 2 from 7 to 8 p.m. as the Rio Samaya Band performs in Fraser River Heritage Park.
Based in Vancouver, the Rio Samaya Band plays infectious music running the gamut from flamenco to Argentinean folk. They have spent the last several years travelling Canada and the world, joining with local musicians to perform in venues from Beijing to Tunisia. Born in San Jorge, Argentina, Pancho wrote poems from a young age, and moved to Europe to follow his dreams of playing the guitar and sharing his songs with the world. After years of exchange with other musicians, his original music has a wide diversity of styles. Sal, who was born in England and raised in Canada, met Pancho in Cuzco, Peru, and since then the duo have established a name for themselves. Sal compliments Pancho’s guitar with her joyful vocals, accordion, shakers, chachas, bombo and guitar.
The Rio Samaya Band will take you on a musical journey without leaving the park.
No Code Blue returns to the concert series at Fraser River Heritage Park on Aug. 7 from 7 to 8 p.m.
No Code Blue is a group of six medical professionals and two businessmen dedicated to enjoying a wide variety of music genres from jazz, rock and roll, funk to country and western. Their schedule is exclusively for fundraising causes such as hospice, wildlife protection, cancer research and sports. Over the past several years, they have performed for many organizations and worthwhile causes, raising over $200,000 for both medical charities and community groups.
The members of No Code Blue hail from disparate backgrounds both musically and professionally, but they are drawn together by their friendship and their passion for music – both of which shine through in their toe-tapping performances.
No Code Blue are audience favourites at the concerts, and have a large group of fans that keep coming back for more. Bring your dancing shoes, and enjoy a great show.
“This is our 13th year of partnership with the Mission Heritage Association,” says Susan Byrom, manager of community investment at Envision Financial. “We’re very excited to once again showcase some of the amazing talent Mission has to offer.”
