The Envision Concert in the Park series continues Saturday, July 28 at Mill Lake in Abbotsford with two popular bands: Horizon from 4 - 6 p.m. and Groovedaddy from 6 - 8 p.m.
Horizon is an eight-piece band with an emphasis on the vocal magic of Crystal Hicks, Dana Wright and Chantelle Davidson.
In the small but mighty horn section is Fred Schmidt on flute/tenor sax, and a rock solid rhythm section is created by Asger Hansen, guitar/keyboards/vocals; Warren Grosland, guitar/vocals; Rick Noel, drums/ vocals and Johan Worst, double bass/electric bass. The music is an eclectic mix of gospel, blues, jazz, rock and a bit o' country.
Groovedaddy is relatively new as a working band but as individual musicians, they have attained a lifetime of experience playing in different bands and in their short time together. The group has become a favourite in the Abbotsford/Mission area.
Groovedaddy is 'smooth jazz, right down to your soul.' Along with their own compositions, you'll hear the music of Steely Dan, Lennon-McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Michael McDonald, Euge Groove, the Rippingtons and more.
The band is made up of Chuck Cave, alto sax/keyboards; Jim Verwoerd, guitar; Zaf Kundakcioglu, drums and Johan Worst, bass.
The venue is the new stage behind Kariton Gallery at the east end of Mill Lake, 2387 Ware St., Abbotsford.
Bring a lawn chair and enjoy an evening of amazing local talent.
