Free Concert at the Bastion Square Public Market! Sunday June 4th

Thanks to everyone who we saw out in the past few days at the Sidney Street Market and the Moss Street Market! Today was our first ever performance at the Moss Street Market. We had a great time and are looking forward to playing there again!

Tomorrow we will be giving a performance in Victoria’s Bastion Square at the Sunday Public Market from 2PM-4PM. This is one of the few Markets that we perform at where our guests can sit on the patio in the sun and enjoy a cold drink!
