Fall Fair to include tribute concerts

You won’t want to miss tribute concerts presented by the Creston Valley Fall Fair on September 9th at the PCSS Theatre.

Can you resist singing along to Chiquitita or Dancing Queen. Or how about The Chain, or Go Your Own Way?

If not, chances are you are a fan of ABBA and/or Fleetwood Mac. And you won’t want to miss tribute concerts presented by the Creston Valley Fall Fair on September 9th at the PCSS Theatre.

“It’s the 100th anniversary of the Creston Valley Fall Fair and we wanted to do things a little differently for the occasion,” volunteer Gary Anderson said last week. “Adding concerts featuring music that many of us grew up with seemed like a nice addition.”

The organizing committee hit something of a home run with ARRIVAL, the ABBA tribute band, and Dreams, the “ultimate tribute” to Fleetwood Mac. The same musicians, based in Vancouver, form both groups.

With loads of experience in groups and as solo acts, the musicians have united to perform music that dominated the charts in the 1970s and later.

ARRIVAL, Canada’s Tribute to ABBA, is an authentic sounding, six piece tribute to ABBA. They perform in full costumes, similar to the actual styles worn by the original ABBA.

The band of professional musicians from Vancouver BC, Canada, has played many shows over the last few years in casinos, theatres and corporate events, all around the world. Some of those places include Las Vegas, the Dominican Republic, Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Regina, to name a few. You will be amazed at how close Arrival-Canada’s tribute to Abba looks and sounds like the original Abba. They take you back in time, so you can experience this amazing music all over again

Dreams – the Ultimate tribute to Fleetwood Mac , is an authentic sounding, six piece tribute to Fleetwood Mac. They perform in full costumes, similar to the actual styles worn by the original Fleetwood Mac.

The group will present separate concerts. ARRIVAL will perform a selection of ABBA’s many hits at 2 pm and Fleetwood Mac’s still popular repertoire will be featured when Dreams takes to the stage at 7 pm.

Tickets to each concert at $30. They are available at Tigz Teas, Black Bear Books and from Fall Fair committee members.
