Music Swap – Sat 8th December – 2018

Music Swap 2018 - Dec

Just a friendly heads-up to everyone that we are hosting another Music Swap on Sat 8th December, the same day as our Sunnybrae Christmas Coffeehouse!

Come on down to the Sunnybrae Community Hall from 10-2pm so buy, sell, trade and talk about – everything music!

As always this event is in support of some local charities: the Salmon Arm Foodbank and the Salmon Arm Emergency Women’s Shelter. The SCA are collaborating in this event with the Tappen Sunnybrae Fire Department’s Food Drive, so entry and sales-table admission will be supporting this fundraiser.

For more information on booking yourself a sales-table, please contact the number in the above poster.

This event is always a great community get together, with some lunch available too, and a perfect opportunity to have a look around for instruments and the like on the lead up to Christmas.

See you there folks!

September Events! Sat 15th / Sat 22nd

 

Saturday 15th September: get ready for another hilarious night as Vancouver group The Radical make a return visit to The Sunnybrae Community Hall, for an evening of completely improvised comedy. For those of you who missed the packed-out show in June, The Radical specialize in audience directed comedy, so expect a lot of crowd participation, unforeseen entertainment and high energy laughs! June was actually my first live, improv Comedy show I’d been to and I really do recommend the experience!

Once again this is a collaboration between the Arts Council For The South Shuswap and the Sunnybrae Community Association. There will be a licensed cash-bar (sorry, no minors at this event) serving beer, local wine from Sunnybrae Vineyards & Winery and some coffee & snacks on the side. Contact 250 515 3276 in advance to organize a Safe Ride Home. Doors are at 6:30pm with a kick-off time of 7:30pm. Tickets are $10 at the door, or available in advance online. Check out the events section of our Facebook page at “Sunnybrae Community Association” for more details.

The following week welcomes some of the Shuswap Community’s most beloved friends back to the Sunnybrae Community Hall. On Saturday 22nd September, A Million Dollars in Pennies and Sons of Bitumen hit the stage for a double-bill concert of outstanding live folk music. Mike & Steph Shaver promise to visit from Vancouver with a “whole whack of new songs…”. Mike & Steph’s performances never fall short of captivating, with beautifully written songs that really bring you with them into their stories, moving you in all directions from start to finish, and always delivered through stellar vocal harmonies and musicianship.

Joining them will be Sons of Bitumen, who last visited us earlier in the year for the Shuswap Culture Crawl. With his Dobro and a stack of whole-hearted originals, Sam will be joining us from beautiful Hope, BC. Accompanied on guitar by one of the Shuswap’s heavy hitters Jake Verburg, this brotherly duo dwell deep in the depths of both acoustic and electric sound. Whatever they may choose this time round, you can count on it being a bold, moving and exceptional performance.

Last to mention but definitely not least, Salmon Arm’s Jake McIntrye-Paul will be making an appearance as special guest for the night, supporting on bass. Both Jake’s have been enjoying some summer gigs together in various bands and we are truly excited to welcome this exceptional musician to the stage at what I believe to be his Sunnybrae Community Hall debut! Admission for this concert is $20, available at Acorn Music, Shuswap Pie Co, Hudson Vintage and at the doors, which open at 6:30pm, show beginning 7:30pm.

As always we have all our information up on our website: www.sunnybraecommunityassociation.com and our Facebook Page: “Sunnybrae Community Association”.

As the temperatures begin to drop and swimming becomes less of an appealing idea, here comes some perfect opportunities to welcome us all back indoors and into another great season of live, community entertainment!

The Radical: Celebrating a great night with a glass of wine from Sunnybrae Vineyards & Winery

We had a superb turnout for “The Radical”: an improv comedy troupe from Vancouver, who traveled up to make their Shuswap debut on Sat 9th June. As a collaboration between the Sunnybrae Community Association and the Arts Council for the South Shuswap, The Radical delivered a hilarious and high energy two-part show, encouraging and drawing a huge amount of spontaneous content from the audience’s participation. A licensed bar featured beer & local wine from Sunnybrae Vineyards & Winery, with prizes dished out to the participating audience from the Tappen Co-op and Sprockets Coffee.

A huge thanks goes out to The Radical for bringing us a great night of laughter, the sponsors for supporting this event, and of course the Shuswap Community for coming out to support the arts!

 

Musical Swap Meet – Sunday 10th June

Musical Swap Meet 2018

The Musical Swap Meet is starting to look like a semi-annual event and the Sunnybrae Community Hall saw another good bunch of musically-minded folks coming in from the rain to check out what was on offer.

From record players, books and amplifiers to vintage acoustic guitars, accordions and wooden percussive instruments, the event saw over 14 tables of musical collections this time around.

Thankyou

People came through the hall from 10-2pm on Sunday 10th June to check out the goods and enjoy a hotdog stand run by the Sunnybrae Community Association. The admission, BBQ and table proceeds were all collected and at the end of the day a grand total of $615.90 was raised for the Second Harvest Foodbank and the Women’s Emergency Shelter (SAFE Society) in Salmon Arm!

A big thanks goes out to Dale Bushy, volunteers of the Sunnybrae Community Association and of course all the folks who turned up to buy/sell/swap all their musical treasures!

Stay tuned for another Musical Swap Meet in the Fall.
