If you are going to be in the valley this long weekend and like country music, you should check out the Country Night Party and Dance at the Snoring Sasquatch on Oct. 6.

Bob Gollan and his group, Peanut Butter and Jam (Julie Groot, Jean Guineau, Chris Dooley and Rhonda Barter), are “going country” for the night and hosting some of their very good country music friends.

Hometown singer-songwriter Tim Plouffe (above) is visiting from his current home in Grande Prairie, Alta., and will perform some of his older and new original songs. Plouffe has won awards for his performances and songwriting over the last two years in Alberta.

Kootenay Jack (Kenny) from Fruitvale will be performing, as well. He is well-known for his outlaw, rockabilly and original songs, and has recorded many CDs.

Rounding out the performers is Cranbrook’s Trena Spears, who won the Kootenays’ Best Singer competition in June. Speers has an awesome voice that is just a treat to hear!

This is a great opportunity to have some fun, dance and enjoy some country music in a big informal living room environment. There will be some mixing of musicians over the night, which should create some very interesting results!

A cash bar will offer beer, local wines and coolers, as well as coffee and tea. Meat and cheese trays will be provided. The music runs from at 7-11 p.m. Advance tickets are $10 at Black Bear Books and Kingfisher Used Books, or $12 at the door.
