Those were the Days ny friend…

Blue plate special being served up at the Sooke Legion

Just Us perform with other musicians and singers on March 31 at the Legion.

For the first time ever, the bluegrass picker and strummers in Sooke will be holding a dinner show at the Sooke Legion on March 31.

Eric Day, one of the area’s biggest bluegrass supporters announced the show featuring a whole bunch of local people and their families.

Day, will perform with his grandkids in the group, These are the Days, as well as with Just Us.

“Mary and I are backing the kids up,” said Day in reference to performing with his grandkids Patrick on drums; Erica with vocals, guitar and mandolin; and Peter picking on the banjo.

Then Day turns it around a bit and performs with Just Us, comprised of himself on guitar, Steve Harrison on banjo, Paul Lang on mandolin and Jeff Ellis on bass.

“We all do vocal, everybody sings,” said Day.

Add to the mix the vocals of Pearl Lacey and Janet McTavish and Mike Kraft and his daughter Kelly.

“It’ll be a great evening of bluegrass music and Brian promised the meal will be great,” said Day.

He said they will be playing everything — new grass, bluegrass and favourites. And the meal will be nothing to be scoffed at, try chicken cordon bleu, scalloped potatoes, veggies and dessert. Dinner begins at 6:30 p.m.,  music starts at 7:30. Tickets are limited to 120 and are on sale at the Legion and at Shoppers Drug Mart until March 25.
