From 7:00 until 9:00 pm, the Centre is hosting the Packing House Social Club, comprised of David Jonsson, Marilyn West, Jim Munn and Tom Burley – members who share a love of all that is bluegrass and country music.
The band is a local favourite and has been featured at the Summerland Community Arts Council’s “Friday Night Live” shows, the Legion, and the Bluegrass Festival. The group also plays regularly at the Summerland Rotary Sunday Market.
From Bill Munroe to Hank Williams to Union Station, the Packing House remains faithful to its bluegrass and country roots. They also have been known to give a playful bluegrass treatment to unexpected tunes from the Rolling Stones to Metallica!
With wry humour and laidback style, the band invites you onto their front porch and down home style of song with the guitar, mandolin and fiddle. You can check the group out at this link: <https://mega.nz/file/xFVjGLjD#hQptwiRaqlx-AjpEN0lsxE1Ja_xiSdxZNB_IzsgfeRM>
