The Aaron Murray Project will set the tone for a monthly musical jamboree.

Getting ready for a musical jamboree

Saturday nights in the fall will be filled with music

Jamboree: It’s defined as a large party or celebration with music and entertainment on one side and as a large gathering of Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts on the other.

Eric Day goes with the first definition, a large party or celebration. Day is envisioning a Jamboree at the Royal Canadian Legion in Sooke once a month.

They will be jamming, and that’s where jamboree comes in.

“We are going to kind of incorporate with the meat draw on Saturday afternoons,” said Day. “Then we’ll choose some jammers for Saturday night.”

So, on the last Saturday during September, October and November, Day will organize the Saturday night music jamborees. He said there will be one band come in to perform each Saturday night at end of each month.  During the meat draw, Day will have a group playing and he said if anyone wants to sing, they can come on down. And you don’t need to be a Legion member either to perform or come to the premises.

There will be an admission fee on Saturday night and those proceeds will go towards building a new stage at the Legion. Food will also be available.

The first band is already booked for September and that would be Aaron Murray’s Project, a band from Victoria that writes their own music. They have performed at the Legion with Eric Day previously. Day said they play country music. All genres of music are open to the afternoon sessions. In fact, Day even invited the folkies.

“I’m asking for ideas now,” said Day. “I’m going into strange territory now.”

Also, he said they need to let people know it’s going to happen.

For more information call Eric Day at 250-642-3553.
