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.
