Top 10 Canadian pop star Andrew Allen heads up Music in the Park’s Night Market
Join the Trail & District Arts Council and Trail’s Incredible Farmers Market at the Night Market on Thursday, August 17 for a fun-filled evening of food vendors, market, beer & wine garden, and live music.
The evening is jam-packed with music as the night opens at 5 pm with Nelson’s Dinosaur Fight and their mix of guitar, keys and looping beats. Then, Baker Street Blues get the crowd dancing with their electric blues at 6:15 pm before the Andrew Allen Duo take to the stage at 7:15 pm playing their lilting, sunny pop tunes that are perfect for a Summer night at Music in the Park!
Dinosaur Fight is an Electro-Funk Hip-Pop Duo featuring Rahj Levinson and Craig Walter from The Hillties. These multi-instrumentalists use live looping and vocals with no backing tracks to bring a totally unique feel to recognizable covers for a high-energy show.
Nelson’s blues dance band, Baker Street Blues, featuring Stelio Calagias (lead singer, guitar, harmonica), Phil Wilson-Birks (bass guitar), Ryan Telegdy (lead guitar) and Tim Potter (drums). delivers “Blues that grabs hold of you….and doesn’t let go!”
Vernon’s Andrew Allen hits the stage with his limitless energy, comic wit, and storytelling for a dynamic and interactive live show. Andrew has scored five Top 10 hits in Canada with “I Wanna Be Your Christmas”, “Loving You Tonight”, “I Want You”, “What You Wanted” and “Favourite Christmas Song”. He has toured with some big names including Bruno Mars, One Republic, Train, and The Barenaked Ladies. And he’s written songs with Meghan Trainor, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Tyler Shaw to name a few. He’s not to be missed live.
The Night Market is an evening of shopping, dancing, and hanging out with friends. The market will see a range of artisans selling everything from soap to candles, comics to ceramics, and farmers’ stalls providing veg, honey, wine and lavender.
Then, eat dinner out with food from around the world including curry, falafel, borscht and more. And, keep sweet with tasty treats like frozen candy, cannoli, chocolate and icecream. Get refreshed with a chilled lemonade or iced coffee or cider, beer, and wine in The Beer and Wine Garden.
Plus, there’s lots of fun for the kids with a hand drawn photo booth, face painting and balloon art.
Don’t forget to bring plenty of water. Need to cool off? The music is right by the water park and the river!
Plus, there is still more music to come weekly from now until August 31 with exciting performances from UCRA Mountain String Band, Petunia and The Vipers, White Lightning and the 2 Bit Jug Band.
Kootenay Savings Music in the Park is held at Trail’s Gyro Park every Thursday night. It’s the perfect opportunity to bring a lawn chair, pack a picnic, hit the water park, get outside, and listen to live music from local favourites to touring talent with friends and family.
