A great season of live summer entertainment wraps up this Saturday with a performance by the Led Zeppelin tribute band Heavy Airship.

The Nelson-based group includes Craig Thiessen on vocals, Gus Dixon on guitar, Quillan Hanley on bass guitar and Eddie Thomas on drums. Heavy Airship has shared the stage with Dr. Hook, Mrs. Strange and the popular BC/DC, which performed on the 3-Eh Stage earlier this summer.

“We are excited to finish the season with the thunderous sounds of Heavy Airship, and to once again feature local performers as the opening acts,” Velle Weitman, whose Stay Live Productions has organized the summer of entertainment on the Ramada Hotel’s outdoor stage.

Local favourite Mike Stenhouse—“Jurassic Mike”—opens the evening at 6:30 pm with his wide selection of hits songs, especially from the Classic Rock Era.

“What a thrill to play and sing some of those ‘memory songs’—you know, the ones that bring your right back to where you were when they hit the radio,” he says.

Stenhouse will be followed by Tongue and Groove, fronted by another popular local performer, Howlin’ Dan.

“Expect a delightful mix of blues and reggae,” Weitman said. “I would like to give a big shout out to this summer’s great performers, and a huge thank you to those who have supported this series of concerts. It’s been a blast!”

Gates open for the September concert at 5 pm. Food and beverages are available on site. Tickets are available at the Ramada, Black Bear Books and Fly in the Fibre.
