In this News post …
We want to say a great big “Thank You” to all of you who came out to Summer Kicks this year in Keith King Park. It was a great location to spread out and folks came out in record numbers for this 16th year! We were really disappointed that PHO orders prevented us from presenting our last two shows of the season … but, the fun was good while it lasted. So much so that we decided to commission Madeline Archibald to put this souvenir video together for you. Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be up on stage with the band? Well, here’s “A Bill’s Eye View.” Check it out!
We do have a full season of Live Kicks concerts at the Civic Centre planned and all set up ready to go. But, given the current PHO restrictions on audience capacity for indoor gatherings/concerts in Interior Health we have decided that it’s best to ‘press pause’ right now and wait and see whether it will be safer come the next scheduled announcement in late October. Please stay tuned for an update then.
