THE SODA CRACKERS at 'A Celebration of the Gallery Bistro', at the Port Moody Legion #119, 2529 Clarke Steet in Port Moody.
The Bistro suffered a devastating loss when a fire erupted at the neighbouring property in the early evening of July 28th. That property was completely destroyed, and the damage to the Gallery Bistro was severe. The Bistro was deemed unsafe and had to be demolished. The owners, Helen and Rainer Daniels were long-time avid supporters of the arts and culture within their community, especially live music. Their dedication to the venue they so lovingly built up through the years, which was truly valued by the many musicians and artists that performed there, will not soon be forgotten. Come by and support Helen and Rainer to show them our thanks and appreciation.

THE SODA CRACKERS aka THE CHRISTMAS CRACKERS at the Port Moody Legion (Club 119) at 2529 Clarke Street in Port Moody BC
The band dons their Christmas hats and present Seasonal Songs Outside The Box. They serve up their usual eclectic mix of bluegrass, swing and country – this time as The Christmas Crackers! Are you sick of the same old seasonal mall music? The Christmas Crackers are the perfect antidote! They’ll dig up some obscure and sometimes irreverent seasonal songs to cure your Christmas blues. Of course there will be delicious dishes from the kitchen and liberal libations to help with that too! This concert was originally scheduled to be at the Gallery Bistro, which was destroyed by fire. More information to come.
