Port Alberni Fun and Christmas Gigs

Last weekend was pretty sweet with our first ever gig at The Blue Marlin Inn in Port Alberni. The staff was immensely friendly and we had a great time with folks dancing from start to finish. The Blue Marlin is a.... colourful place with characterised duck-people painted on the wall and decades of great stories to be told by the staff. Thanks to Candy, both Cathys, Nate and the rest for looking after us. Really dug the Paul Bunyan painting in the hall by our accoms.

In other news we've got a few holiday themed gigs coming up. We'll be playing the "Post-Jingle Mingle" at Jack's in Tofino on November 29th (and still be there for November 30th for some post-post Jingle fun). In Tofino on the Friday that lines up with American Thanksgiving the local vendors stay open late and run some great sales to encourage locals and visitors to take care of their holiday shopping in the local market instead of the big box stores out of town. So, after you're done shopping come warm up by dancing with Ballistic Pig at Jack's.

Also, we were just booking to play the Jamie's Rainforest Inn Christmas Party on December 19th. Looking forward to that one for sure, Jamie himself is a big classic rock and blues fan AND it's his birthday so it should be a good fit.

Jack's jam night's continue on Mondays and we're still sorting out exactly what the plan will be for New Years Eve so stay tuned.
