LOCALS COFFEE HOUSE SEASON WINTER/SPRING 2017

STUDIO / STAGE DOOR CRANBROOK

These are the dates for the upcoming season of Locals.  We are so excited to have 6 dates for this coming season.  The last few seasons all the shows have sold out!  Now we can bring more amazing music to the community.  Locals gave away $2,000 last year to 4 music programs in the Cranbrook school system.  We know this helps to support the love of music at a young age and maybe one day some of those students will perform at Locals. The dates are as follows:

  • January 13th, 2018
  • February 3, 2018
  • March 24th, 2018

If you or your group can play at one of the shows drop send an email to locals@shaw.ca  (the sooner the better)

  3. Hi there, my name is Cassandra Hayward and I’m the events coordinator at St. Eugene and just found this page! I’ve just finished meeting with Ray Foxworthy and he gave me some great names of bands to check out for an event I’m doing on October 7th called Rocktoberfest. I found this page as I was trying to find contact info for Jamel Ahmed, I heard he has a great band to check out. I see that a lot of the bands listed on the July entertainment for BJ’s is a lot of the same people I’ve been in contact with 🙂 I’m looking for anyone else you might want to pass on my contact info to. The event will consist of 10 bands starting at noon and running until 11pm, 45 min sets with a 15 min strike in between. It is sponsored by Fernie Brewing as well as a lot of other local breweries and distilleries will be handing out samples of their delicious drinks. We are posting online that anyone interested can contact me directly at chayward@steugene.ca & the cut off is this Friday for entries. Sorry I just found you today! 🙂 We are then picking the 10 bands and posting by the 15th. Thanks for this and happy to spread the word, live music is what I live for 🙂
