Music at the Lake in Chase BC

Our little Village of Chase in BC is a wonderful place to live.  It is right on the Little Shuswap Lake and surround by scenic mountains.  We have a lovely park in town at the lake with a boat launch, children's playground, picnic area, new pier and amphitheatre.

This year the Village of Chase joined the Music in the Parks program with live music held each night in a different location in the Shuswap area.  The Music on the Lake in Chase takes place every Tuesday evening from 7 to 8:30 all summer long.

Last night was the 2nd week starting out with the Checkmates from Lee Creek to warm up the crowd.

The main act was a fabulous rock band from Kamloops called Shattered Blue.  Their music was upbeat and had a lot of people tapping their toes and dancing.  This band had just finished opening for the Sam Roberts Band the night before at Sun Peaks Resort.

I belong to the Chase Women in Business group and for a summer project we are sponsoring the Green Room by providing refreshments for the performers each week.

Last night Barb Paquette of Tree of My Heart Healing, (below, far left) and myself were in charge so was also a great opportunity to meet the musicians.  Beside me (2nd from right) is Ali Maki, one of our town councilors and heading up the Music on the Lake and far right is Natalie of One Love Photography.  You can see some blog posts on a photo shoot she did a few years ago here and here.

I am already looking forward to more great music right here all summer long!
